As announced, Manchester City star Ruben Dias has clinched the Premier League Player of the Season award for 2020/2021 after an outstanding campaign – prompting many Sky Blues supporters to rave over the ‘fantastic’ news.
Dias has been a mainstay under manager Pep Guardiola since signing from Benfica in the summer of 2020, with only Ederson starting more matches in the top flight last season (WhoScored).
Indeed, the Portuguese powerhouse was a huge influence on the side during City’s domestic double-winning campaign and arguably helped to resurrect the form of John Stones in defence.
The pair formed an exceptional partnership, blocking the most shots per 90 out of the entire squad (WhoScored), and were a big part of the Sky Blues’ eventual Premier League title win.
Dias also averaged more clearances per game (2.8) than any City star, with the 24-year-old now being rewarded for his stunning contribution.
He has now picked up the Premier League Player of the Season award and it is arguably fully deserved ahead of some stiff competition such as Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
Raving over this announcement, many Citizens had their say as they dropped their joyous verdicts on social media.
