Manchester City midfielde maestro Kevin De Bruyne has been named the English Premier League (EPL) Player of the 2019/2020 Season.
Naija News reports that the Belgian playmaker beat Liverpool’s 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.
Recall that De Bruyne’s Manchester City relinquished their Premier League title to Liverpool following two seasons as champions.
Despite missing the EPL title, De Bruyne had his most productive season since arriving at the Etihad in 2015, according to Sky.
As well as recording 20 assists – equalling the league record set by Thierry Henry in 2003 – he also scored 13 times to help City finish as the division’s highest scorers for the third successive season.
