Manchester City and Portugal defender Ruben Dias won The Athletic UK Premier League Player of The Year Awards and The Football Writers Association Premier League Player of The Year Awards ahead of the likes of Kevin DeBruyne and Tottenham's and England's captain Harry Kane.
The Portuguese defender who was a record signing for the club earlier this season from Benfica has really been a solid defender this season. He has already been compared to Liverpool's Virgil VanDjik who was out earlier this season due to a knee injury which saw him out for the rest of the season.
Ruben Dias after winning the FWA Awards was asked on his Champion's League favourite moment and he responded boldly that it was yet to come. This could be a message ahead of the Champion's League final clash with Chelsea on 29th May. Who do you think are going to be crowned champions of Europe? Give your thoughts on the comment section.
