Although De Bruyne was named the Premier League Player of the Season, Sadio Mane was the best for the fans. 41% of the fans named the Senegalese player best.
Football fans named Liverpool striker Sadio Mane as the best player of the English Premier League season. The information is reported by the official press service of the Merseyside team. In a poll conducted by the Professional Football Association (PFA), the 28-year-old Senegalese received 41% of the vote.
Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne (27%) and Mane’s teammate Trent Alexander Arnold (17%) are also in the top three.
Recall that the Premier League named De Bruyne the best player of last season, while the best young player became Trent Arnold. Journalists named the best Liverpool captain, Jordan Henderson. The best coach of the season is Jürgen Klopp.
In the 2019-2020 season, Liverpool became the Premier League champions and were 18 points ahead of second-placed City.
About four months ago, when the Premier League was suspended in the 29th round due to a pandemic, Manchester City attacking midfielder Kevin de Bruyne also praised Mane. He told BT Sport that Sadio Mane is the best in the Premier League this year.
“Mane is the best in the Premier League this season. So, he deserves the prize. He is one of the leaders of Liverpool this year and plays a big role in the team’s success.”
