Manchester City's Ruben Dias has been crowned Football Writers' Association (FWA) Footballer of the Year for the 2020/21 season.
The Portugal defender picked up more votes than Man City team-mate Kevin De Bruyne and Tottenham striker Harry Kane, to claim the honour.


Diaz picked up votes which accounted for 50 per cent of the total votes cast.

After joining from Benfica last summer for £65m, Dias has made 31 appearances for Man City this season, scoring one goal and helping his side register 14 clean sheets when he is in the team.
Reflecting on his award, Dias said: "It's a huge privilege, I'm very, very happy. I could not have done it without the success of the team, without everyone in the team deserving this award. Only by that, as a defender, am I able to be here to receive this prize.

"Essentially, when I came I wanted to meet everyone as fast as possible, understand how the team plays. I knew the manager and the players, I knew a bit about the philosophy of the club because I am fan of football and I know City from the last few years.
His partnership with John Stones at the heart of Guardiola's defence, which has conceded only 32 goals in total in the league, played a key part in City's Premier League triumph.

"I had an idea of what I was coming to and I wanted to integrate myself as fast as possible."

Dias is the first defender to win the award since Liverpool's Steve Nicol back in 1989.
