Kevin De Bruyne set to battle Robert Lewandowski and Manuel Neuer for the 2020 UEFA men’s Player of the Year Award.
The 29-year-old Belgium international equaled Thierry Henry’s Premier League assists record after scoring and up 33 goals last season but the playmaker was nominated despite Manchester City finishing second to Liverpool domestically and going out of the Champions League in the quarter-finals to Lyon.
De Bruyne has already been named player of the year by both the Premier League and the Professional Footballers Association, while he was beaten to the football writers’ award by Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson.
