He now has joined an elite group of players in Cristiano Ronaldo, De Bruyne, Gareth Bale, Mark Hughes, Alan Shearer, and Thierry Henry who has been a recipient of this award twice in their careers.
The PFA has named him the winner of this award over the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Kane, Virgil Van Dijk and Sadio Mane.
