Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has insisted that Kevin De Bruyne should have been named the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year, instead of Liverpool’s Mohammed Salah.
De Bruyne netted his 12th goal of the campaign during City’s rout of Swansea City on Sunday, while Salah is already on 31.
But Guardiola believes his playmaker’s influence on games has been unrivalled.
“I know my opinion about these awards. From my point of view when you are analysing 10 months, there is no player better than him (De Bruyne) in terms of the continuity.
“Maybe in numbers there are guys better than him, but there is no better player this season. For me he was the best.
“I would like to feel that he deserves it but in the summer time he will be at home as a champion,” Guardiola said.
