Official: Kevin De Bruyne has won the Premier League Player of the Season award for 2019-20

Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne had a heartbreaking Champions League night on Saturday. Lyon knocked them out by a scoreline of 3-1 but the match was full of controversies.

But there’s some good news for Manchester City and Kevin De Bruyne. Although Liverpool won the Premier League, De Bruyne had an amazing season. He finished the season with 13 goals and 20 assists in 35 appearances – equalling Thierry Henry’s record for maximum assists in a single Premier League campaign.

Premier League has now officially announced on Sunday that Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne is the 2019-20 EA Sports FIFA Player of the Season.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson won the FWA’s Footballer of the Year award but De Bruyne has beaten him to win this award.

De Bruyne was upset after they crashed out of the Champions League. He felt he and his teammates only have themselves to blame. He said: “The game was open, but (Lyon) didn’t really create too many chances.”

“We need to learn – it’s not good enough. That’s it. The first half was not good enough and we know that, we started slow and did not have options.”

“Second half we played well, got 1-1 and had chances, but then 2-1 and 3-1 ends the game, it’s a shame for us to go out that way.”

“Their keeper made a few saves and even at 2-1, we had a chance with Raz (Raheem Sterling). That’s football, fine margins make the difference.

The 2019-20 season is over and De Druyne revealed the one thing he is now looking forward to. He said: “I need to get home because my wife is expecting any moment. I have something to focus on personally. But yes, it’s hard (to take).”

And now, there’s another thing for him to celebrate. He deserves every bit of the Player of the Season award.
