Kevin De Bruyne has been voted the 2021/22 EA SPORTS Player of the Season.

De Bruyne joins an elite group of players to win the award in more than one Premier League campaign, emulating Thierry Henry, Cristiano Ronaldo and Nemanja Vidic.

The Belgian, who last won the prize in 2019/20, has been pivotal to a Manchester City side who have lifted their sixth Premier League Trophy. 

"To win this award for a second time is an achievement that I am really proud of," he told the club's official website.

"There is so much quality in the Premier League and it is a pleasure to be nominated with so many other great players who have had incredible seasons for their clubs.

"Thank you to all of the staff, coaches and especially my teammates because without them this wouldn’t be possible."

De Bruyne has scored 15 goals and provided a further eight assists in only 30 appearances.

His last assist was for Ilkay Gundogan's winner against Aston Villa on Sunday that helped Man City beat Liverpool to the title.
