Manchester City defender, Ruben Dias has been named the Premier League Player of the Season. The Portugal international, who joined City from Benfica in September, wins his second individual award after being named the Football Writers’ Association men’s Player of the Year last month.
He won the prestigious award after edging out Kevin De Bruyne, Bruno Fernandes, Jack Grealish, Harry Kane, Mason Mount, Mohamed Salah and Tomas Soucek.
Dias is only the fourth defender to win the prize, after Manchester United’s Nemanja Vidic, former City captain Vincent Kompany and Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk. He is also just the second Portuguese winner after Cristiano Ronaldo, who won it with Manchester United in 2006-07 and 2007-08.
