Manchester City Defender, Ruben Dias, Named Premier League Player of the Season
Manchester City defender, Ruben Dias, has been named Premier League Player of the Season after helping Manchester City regain the title by finishing as champions in the just concluded 2020-2021 Premier League season..
The Portuguese defender beat his City team-mate Kevin De Bruyne and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane to bag the title.
Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes, Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish, West Ham’s Tomas Soucek, Chelsea’s Mason Mount and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah also made the shortlist.
The 24-year-old enjoyed an outstanding debut season in the Premier League after joining for £65million from Benfica last September.
His strong defensive skills helped Pep Guardiola’s team remain at the top of the table during the second half of the season and ultimately finish 12 points ahead of Man United to emerge winners of the season.
