Kevin De Bruyne: Manchester City midfielder named 2020 PFA Player of the Year

Kevin De Bruyne is the Professional Footballers’ Association’s Male Player of the Year after his outstanding season for Manchester City.
Even with Liverpool’s historic title, there was little doubt that De Bruyne was the best player in the Premier League during the 2019-20 campaign.
De Bruyne, 29, was also Premier League Player of the Year and beat teammate Raheem Sterling and four Liverpool players to the PFA honor (Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mane, and Virgil van Dijk).
Liverpool players Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk won the award in the two previous seasons that saw record-breaking Man City summit the league, so turnabout is fair play.
The Belgian tied Thierry Henry’s single-season PL assist record with 20 helpers, and that mark might’ve been obliterated had City finished more De Bruyne-produced chances.
De Bruyne also scored a career-best 13 goals in league play, and was humbled by the occasion.
