De Bruyne is the best player in the Premier League
Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne is the best player of the season in the Premier League.
The Manchester City player outperformed 3 players from his team, Ilkay Gundogan, Robin Diaz, and Phil Foden.
In addition to the Manchester City four, Manchester United player Bruno Fernandes and Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane, the top scorer of the English Premier League 2020-2021, competed for the award.
This season, City won the Premier League and League Cup.
However, City failed to win the UEFA Champions League, after losing to Chelsea in the final.
The team presented an unexpectedly poor level in that match.
De Bruyne the best player of the season
De Bruyne retained the award after winning it for the first time last season 2019-20.
The Belgian became the third player to win the award in two consecutive seasons, after Cristiano Ronaldo and Thierry Henry.
In his comments after winning the award, the player said, “I did really well. Perhaps it is the most important award at an individual level in the league.”
He added, “The vote for me by the opponents I play against every game says a lot.”
Moreover, Phil Foden, City’s talent, won the award for the best young player.
Foden beat Chelsea’s Mason Mount, West Ham United’s Declan Rice, Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood, Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka, and Liverpool’s Trina Alexander-Arnold.
With this, Manchester City has performed well this season, especially locally. And, the players also won individual awards.
