Leroy Sane crowned PFA Young Player of the Year as Manchester City star is recognised for brilliant campaign

The German has been in stunning form this season and was up for the main award as well.

Sane has been a key part of City’s incredible title-winning campaign under Pep Guardiola.

And the 22-year-old deserves every inch of his accolade after scoring nine goals and assisting a further 12 for team-mates.

Other players in the running for the award included Tottenham’s Harry Kane, Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford, Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon and City duo Ederson and Raheem Sterling.

Sane’s brilliant form should also see him figure as an important player for Germany at this summer’s World Cup in Russia.


Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah was named PFA Player of the Year on the night.

The Liverpool ace has banged in 31 league goals during his first season at Anfield, assisting a further nine in the process.
