Shay Given believes De Bruyne deserves PFA more than Salah
The Belgian playmaker has been sensational in Manchester City’s journey this season and is already one step away from claiming the Premier League title for the Citizens.
On the other hand, Salah has proven why he is the signing of the season in Europe, bagging 29 goals more than any player did in his league.
“You cannot say enough what an amazing season De Bruyne has had,” Given told Sky Sports’ Premier League Daily.
“He is an all-around team player. We talk about the individual brilliance of some players in the team but what he brings to the team with his assists is world class.
“Of course he brings goal as well but his vision, his weight of pass….. He just sees things that other players don’t see.
“For me he is the player of the season. Of course Liverpool fans will be at home saying Mohamed Salah has run him very, very close but I think De Bruyne is going to pick up the Premier League [title], if not this Saturday then in the coming weeks, and I feel he just edges him because of the team he is playing in.
“But any other season I think Mo Salah would be picking up that gong.”
