Why Kevin De Bruyne is Player of the Season

Kevin De Bruyne is the best passer in Premier League history, and deserves to win Player of the Season, insists Jamie Redknapp.

Though his Manchester City side stumbled in the Premier League, sitting 25 points behind leaders Liverpool before football was put on hold due to coronavirus, the Belgian was the champions’ outstanding performer, registering 16 assists.

Speaking on theĀ Sky Sports Football player of the season podcast, Redknapp said: “There have been some outstanding performances this season. But Kevin De Bruyne has been absolutely outstanding.

“His statistics this year have been his best ever, and if the rest of the City side had been as consistent as him, they’d probably be in contention with Liverpool.

“For me, De Bruyne’s assists and goals really make him stand out for me. His numbers are just far and away better than anyone else’s. If it does go to somebody outside of the Liverpool team, he is the only person you can really mention, because he has been that good, and has shone like a star in that City side at the moment.

“I would say he’s the best Premier League passer I’ve seen, and that’s including David Beckham, Paul Scholes, all of them, because he has the variation of passing.

“If we finish the season, he will break Thierry Henry’s assist record 20.”
