Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez has been rightfully named Player of the Year by the Football Supporters’ Federation.
The 26-year-old forward, who joined Arsenal from Barcelona in 2014, and who is currently injured, scored 20 goals in 2015.
Sanchez topped the fans’ vote ahead of runner-up Jamie Vardy, with Sergio Aguero, David De Gea, Harry Kane and John Stones also on the shortlist.
Reacting to the award, the Chilean said: “I’m delighted to receive the FSF Player of the Year award. Personally, it’s been a great 2015 for me on the pitch with both my club and country.
“Arsenal have enjoyed a good start to the season and it was disappointing to pick up an injury. But I’m hoping to be back soon to help my team-mates have another successful year.”
And according to Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger, he stated that Sanchez has influenced English football positively since arriving from Spain.
“Alexis has had a great 2015 – winning the FA Cup with us and the Copa America with Chile.
“He has made a huge impact on English football since his arrival at the Emirates and I’m very happy that his skill, ability and dedication has been recognised by football fans across the country.”
