Manchester City fans rage as Ruben Dias is snubbed for PFA Award by 'joke' Kevin De Bruyne
Kevin De Bruyne was named PFA Player of the Year for the second season in a row. And some Manchester City supporters were not happy with the decision.
Manchester City swept last night’s PFA awards as Phil Foden also won the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
Indeed, City had four players nominated for the grand prize, with Ruben Dias the favourite to scoop up the PFA Player of the Year award. However, it was his Belgian teammate who took how the prestigious accolade.
De Bruyne had a solid season for City, with the midfielder scoring six goals and assisting 12 in 25 Premier League appearances. The Belgian also guided the Premier League title holders to their first UEFA Champions League final.
Whilst there is no doubting De Bruyne’s exceptional footballing ability, some City supporters on social media were scratching their heads as to why the former Wolfsburg star won the award.
Here’s what some fans had to say about De Bruyne on Twitter, with supporters thinking Dias should have won the award instead…

Furthermore, De Bruyne becomes only the third Premier League player to win the PFA Player of the Award back-to-back.
