Manchester City forward Phil Foden has been named the PFA Young Player of the Year award for the second consecutive year. The 22-year-old had a very strong campaign where his contributions helped Manchester City in becoming the Premier League champions for the fourth time in five years.

In Premier League, Foden had scored 9 goals and assisted 5 times in 28 matches. In the UEFA Champions League, he had played 11 matches and scored 3 goals for City.

Foden wins this prestigious award apart from having strong competition from Reece James, Jacob Ramsey, Conor Gallagher, Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe. He is the fifth male player to win this prize in consecutive years joining Dele Alli, Wayne Rooney, Robbie Fowler and Ryan Giggs.  This feat was achieved by Dele Alli last time in the years 2016 and 2017.

After winning the award, Foden in a PFA interview said: “I’m really honoured, especially to win it back-to-back. It shows that I’ve come a long way this year with the consistency of my game. I’m really pleased to win it again.”
