🚨 BREAKING: Kevin de Bruyne named 2021 PFA Players' Player of the Year

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has been named PFA Player of the Year for the second season running. 

The Belgian becomes just the third player to win back-to-back awards, following in the Thierry Henry and Cristiano Ronaldo's footsteps.

De Bruyne was instrumental as Man City lifted the Premier League and the Carabao Cup, playing 40 matches across all competitions and scoring 10 goals and notching a further 18 assists. 

The award is normally voted for by fellow professionals and recognizes outstanding performers. 

“It’s crazy!” De Bruyne said in reaction to winning successive awards.

“You talk about two legends in the game – one of the best strikers ever [Henry] and one of the top two players in the world [Ronaldo], so to do the same thing as them is crazy.

“I really enjoy playing in this team. I signed a new contract knowing the playing style.

“I am really happy here. We compete for every trophy and that suits my competitive nature.

“The team has been unbelievable and push me to my best level every day.”
