Manchester City playmaker 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 the award.
De Bruyne was the only Manchester City player to be nominated for the prize after they lost their Premier League title to Liverpool following two seasons as champions.
As well as recording 20 assists — equalling the league record set by Thierry Henry in 2003 — De Bruyne also scored 13 times to help City finish as the division’s highest scorers for the third successive season.
