Manchester United’s David De Gea has been named the club’s Player of the Year at an annual awards ceremony on Thursday night, Daily Mail reports.
The goalkeeper picked up two awards – the Sir Matt Busby Player of Year and the Players’ Player of the Year – one where the supporters voted while the latter was from player votes respectively.
Dea Gea won with 54%, followed by Wayne Rooney and youngster Adnan Januzaj, in a season which saw the squad’s first campaign since Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down as manager.
The Spaniard was one of the very few performers who played at a consistent level throughout a dismal campaign, the Red Devils likely to finish seventh unless Tottenham Hotspur lose to Aston Villa at home this weekend.
The 23-year-old said: “I want to thank the fans. From my very first day at the club, I have felt their love and I’m really happy. For them, we will try next season to do our best again.”
In regards to collecting the award from his team-mates, he said: “I’m really happy to win this honour. I’m very grateful.
“Sometimes it’s important for your team-mates to give you confidence and I think they’re some of the best team-mates you can have.
“I tried to do my best this year and I think it was my best season so far. I felt really good and confident. I will try to do the same for next season.”
