Let’s take a brief look at the players who have won the English Premier League player of the year in the past years. Read on to know why they deserved it and what made them so unique from others.
English Premier League Player of the Year 2016 winner – Jamie Vardy
Vardy was placed on a 10-man shortlist for the award because of his marvellous performance to make Leicester City the 2015-16 Premier League winner. His clubmates Riyad Mahrez, N’Golo Kante, Kasper Schmeichel as well as Wes Morgan were also on that list. Some other names that were also on the shortlist along with West Ham’s Dimitri Payet and Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil were Tottenham’s Harry Kane, Dele Alli as well as Toby Alderweireld. The funny thing about Jamie Vardy is that he had already won the award of Footballer of the Year by the Football Writers’ Association. Being the best player of the season was an additional dollop of ice cream on his sundae of awards and nominations.
English Premier League Player of the Year 2015 winner – Eden Hazard
This Belgian winger had a horrible campaign last year as it wasn’t until the 23 April to score his first league goal. but now that he is in the game, he’s got off to a flying start this term. Hazard had two goals in his first three appearances for the 5-times Premier League Champion Chelsea that season. This showed the flair and excellence that was the reason for him being the PFA Player of the Year for the session of 2014/15. Hazard’s win was not yet official and yet he had been voted the best player of the first few games of the season by fans, with a panel of former footballers and managers to cast the deciding vote. Later on, it was confirmed that he indeed got the best player award for the 2014-15 season.
English Premier League Player of the Year 2014 winner – Luis Suarez
Luis Suarez has always been an excellent player. He had added glory to his growing list of awards by being been named Barclays Player of the Season for 2013/14.The talented striker from Liverpool scored 31 goals and made 12 assists in 33 Premier League appearances that season as Liverpool narrowly lost out to Manchester City. It was indeed a delightful race for the ultimate title. Suarez also bagged the PFA Players’ Player of the Year as well as the Football Writers’ Player of the Year that season. He collected his fourth award of the season by winning the Barclays Golden Boot award. Now, who wouldn’t be jealous of this fella?
English Premier League Player of the Year 2013 winner – Gareth Bale
This was certainly a great victory for the Welsh star, who had scored 19 goals in a breakout season that helped him transform from the winger into the out-and-out goal scorer. It has now been years since the PFA Player of the Year played for the Premier League champions. He was the last man to earn both the PFA award and a league winners’ medal and that too in the same season as Ryan Giggs, which was in 2009. Greth Bale’s enormous success made him only the third player ever to win both Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards. Apart from him, Cristiano Ronaldo and Andy Gray pulled off the feat in the years 2007 and 1977 respectively.
“It’s a massive honour,” said the 23-year-old in an interview. He further added “When you look at the list of winners there are some massive names on it but I couldn’t have done it without the team. They have been fantastic this year and so has the manager. I couldn’t have won it without them.”
English Premier League Player of the Year 2012 winner – Vincent Kompany
Vincent Kompany, who is also known as the central defender has been a rock at the back for the title favourites. his leadership has also been recognised by a panel of experts in winning this particular award. Kompany has scored his share of goals, including of course the winner against United at the end of April. This was the first time that a City player picked up the award.
