Phil Foden: Player of the Season award “means a lot to me”

Manchester City forward Phil Foden has been named the Premier League Player of the season, following his exceptional performances.

The award is the 23-year-old’s second individual prize in few days, having recently scooped the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year diadem.
Foden has made an impressive impact for City this season, scoring 17 league goals and bagging 10 assists, including his hat-trick against Fulham.

The forward has lauded the Premier League as the best in the world and thanked his admirers who made it possible for him to win the award.

Foden said: “To win this award is an achievement that I am extremely proud of. The Premier League is acknowledged as the greatest league in the world, and it is a pleasure to have been nominated with so many other great players who have all enjoyed special seasons for their clubs.

“Overall, I’ve been very happy with the way I have played this season and really pleased that I have been able to contribute with the goals and assists throughout the season.

“I’d like to thank all of the City staff, coaches and especially my team-mates because without them this wouldn’t be possible. And I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who voted for me as the award means a lot.”

Baring any injury, Foden will be expected to feature prominently in Manchester City’s last league game of the season against West Ham United on Sunday.
