Not that it should come as much of a surprise, but Eden Hazard has been named the PFA Player of the Year for 2014/15 after weighing in with a healthy 13 goals and eight assists in 33 Premier League games for title-winners-in-waiting Chelsea so far this season.
Here he is with his trophy…
It’ll make a fine paperweight, we’re sure.
“I’m very happy. One day I want to be the best and what I did this season is play very well, Chelsea played very well,” Hazard said at the awards gala in London on Sunday evening.
“I don’t know if I deserve to win but it is good for me. It is better to be voted by the players – they know everything about football.
“Personally I have played a good season, I have been there in the big games and I scored a lot of important goals, this is why I’m better this season.”
Elsewhere, Tottenham hero Harry Kane picked up the PFA Young Player of the Year award after racking up 20 Premier League goals and an England debut/goal in a momentous season for the 21-year-old striker…
Women’s Player of the Year went to Chelsea midfielder Ji So-Yun, with Arsenal midfielder Leah Williamson (whose name you may remember from this ridiculous furore) won the Women’s PFA Young Player of the Year award.
Congrats to all!
