Premier League: Phil Foden, championship leader with Manchester City and voted best player of the season

A personal trophy before the title of champion of England this Sunday? Phil Foden, Manchester City attacking midfielder, was awarded the title of best player of the Premier League season this Saturday. The Englishman, who will celebrate his 24th birthday on May 28, obtains it for the first time in his career.

He himself announced the news on the social network X (formerly Twitter): “What a week! I am very honored to receive these prestigious awards! Thank you to everyone who voted for me, to the City staff and coaches, to my family and, of course, to my team-mates. I am delighted with the way I have played since the start of the season and it would not have been possible without those around me. »

Two weeks ago, he had already received the award for best player of the season from the Association of English Sports Journalists. Beyond his influence on his team’s play, the midfielder displays impressive statistics since he has accumulated 17 goals and 8 assists since the start of the Premier League season.

Manchester City took the lead in the championship last Tuesday, after their victory against Tottenham. The final day takes place this Sunday, and the Sky Blues face West Ham. A victory would certainly allow them to be champions, ahead of Arsenal. The Gunners face Everton and have two points less than the team coached by Pep Guardiola.
