Jordan Henderson beats Kevin de Bruyne to win FWA Footballer of the Year award

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has won the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year award just days after lifting the Premier League trophy.

Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne was seen as the favourite to claim the award earlier this week thanks to his contribution of 19 assists and 11 goals in the Premier League this season, but was beaten by Henderson.

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford and Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk also made the top five, but it is Henderson who has been recognised for his inspirational role in Liverpool’s first title triumph in 30 years with the prestigious individual award.
