Phil Foden wins EPL player of the season award

The English Premier League (EPL) has named Phil Foden as the 2023/24 player of the season.

The Manchester City forward was voted winner of the award from an eight-man list that included Erling Haaland, Alexander Isak, Martin Odegaard, Cole Palmer, Declan Rice, Virgil van Dijk and Ollie Watkins.

It is the fifth consecutive time a Man City player would win the award, with Haaland, Kevin de Bruyne (twice) and Ruben Dias the winners of the previous four seasons.

Foden has scored 25 goals — 17 in the EPL — and made 11 assists in the current campaign. His goals have contributed to a potential sixth EPL title for the Etihad side.

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

“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.

“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.”

Foden, a Manchester City academy graduate, won the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup titles earlier this season.

He has the chance to add more silverware to his cabinet on Sunday when City play their final league game of the season against West Ham.

The champions have also qualified for the FA Cup final against Manchester United on May 25.
