Manchester City Midfielder Kevin De Bruyne Wins Premier League Player Of The Season
Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has been named Premier League Player of the Season for the 2019/20 campaign.
The Belgian playmaker beat Liverpool trio Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold, Southampton striker Danny Ings, Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope and Leicester’s Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy to win the award.
De Bruyne was the only Manchester City player to be nominated for the prize after they relinquished their Premier League title to Liverpool following two seasons as champions.
Despite City finishing second for the Premier League 2019/20 campaign, De Bruyne enjoyed a productive season since arriving at the Etihad in 2015.
He recorded 20 assists, equalling the league record set by Thierry Henry in 2003 and also scored 13 times to help City finish as the division’s highest scorers for the third successive season.
Meanwhile, Liverpool’s right-back, Trent Alexander-Arnold was named Young Player of the Season, while his manager Jurgen Klopp won the award for Premier League Manager of the Season.
