Kevin De Bruyne has been named as the 2019/20 Premier League Player of the Season.
The coveted award marks the latest accolade in what has been a standout campaign for the Belgian midfielder.
De Bruyne, who has been in magnificent form throughout the past 12 months, had already been voted as the Club’s Etihad Player of the Season.
And the 29-year-old’s excellence and consistency across the season has now seen him fend off competition from fellow nominees Danny Ings (Southampton), Nick Pope (Burnley), Jamie Vardy (Leicester City), Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane (all Liverpool) to land the prestigious Premier League prize.

It’s yet further fitting recognition for De Bruyne who has once again illustrated just why he is recognised as one of the most influential attacking players in the country.
The 29-year-old provided 20 assists in our league season to win his second Premier League Playmaker award and in doing so equalled Thierry Henry’s 17-year record for the highest number of assists in a single campaign.
