Manchester City midfielder has been handed the award yet again after winning it a year ago.
Kevin De Bruyne has bagged 2021 PFA Player of the Year. In claiming the back-to-back PFA award, he is only the third player in Premier League's history. Only Thierry Henry and Cristiano Ronaldo had done it before him.

To take home the ward, the 29-year-old beat his club's teammates Phil Foden, Ruben Dias, Ilkay Gundogan, and other EPL stars like Bruno Fernandes and Harry Kane.
PFA Player of the Year award is voted by fellow players in the league. The award is regarded by many, including players themselves, as highly prestigious.
After becoming the winner for the second year running, the Belgium star thanked everyone on his Instagram. He wrote, "Very honoured and proud to receive this award twice in a row!

The former Wolfsburg also said this in an interview:
"You want to win all the trophies with the team. And then obviously, if you win a trophy like this, this is probably the most important one as an individual trophy in the league. To be voted by your competitors, by players we compete with every game, to choose you-that says a lot."
De Bruyne played a vital role in Manchester City's Premier League-winning campaign playing 25 games where she scored six and assisted 12, creating 80 chances.
