Phil Foden beats Cole Palmer, Odegaard, Halaad to win Premier League player of the season

The 23-year-old England and Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden, on Saturday, was named Premier League’s Player of the Season.

The announcement meant the midfielder completed an awards double after being voted Footballer of the Year by the English Football Writers’ Association earlier this month.

Foden has scored a career-best 17 Premier League goals so far this season ahead of champions City’s final league game of the campaign.

Foden was a two-time winner of the Premier League’s Young Player of the Season award in 2021 and 2022 and was nominated for the main award alongside Erling Haaland, Alexander Isak, Martin Odegaard, Cole Palmer, Declan Rice, Virgil Van Dijk and Ollie Watkins this year.

“To win this award is an achievement that I am extremely proud of,” said Foden. “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,” Foden added.

“I’d like to thank all of the City staff, coaches and especially my teammates 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.”

Manchester City are looking forward to securing a record fourth successive English title when they face West Ham at Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
