The monster striker made league history in his first season.
“Elling Holland (22, Manchester City) has been named Player of the Year,” the English Premier League (PL) secretariat announced on its official channels on Sunday. He is also the winner of the Young Player of the Year award.”
It’s a phenomenal record. According to the PL secretariat, Holland is the first player in league history to win both the Young Player and Player 토토사이트 of the Year awards. “I’ve had an incredible first season in the Premier League,” said Holland. It was a very special moment to lift the trophy in front of our home fans last weekend,” said Holland.
“These awards would not have been possible without my teammates, my manager, and everyone at the club. We still have two more finals to go. We want to finish the season perfectly.”
It’s been a monster season for the striker. Holland, who joined City from Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga last summer, took the English scene by storm without much of an adjustment period. He and Kevin De Bruyne, 31, have been deadly. He has emerged as City’s go-to man under Pep Guardiola. His goal-scoring streak has taken him to the top of the Premier League scoring charts. He now has 36 goals in 35 games, well ahead of second-place Harry Kane (28, Tottenham Hotspur). He also broke the Premier League record for most goals in a single season.
Along with Holland’s goal barrage, his club, Manchester City, has also been flying high. City’s end-of-season winning streak propelled them past Arsenal to win the Premier League title. Traveling is possible. They have the English Football Association (FA) Cup and UEFA Champions League (UCL) finals on the horizon.
In fact, Holland is likely to be the top scorer as well. With just one Premier League game remaining, Holland is eight goals ahead of second-place Kane. His offensive points are equally impressive. 36 goals and 8 assists for 44 points. That’s 13 more than Kane (31).
The final Premier League game will be played on May 29 at 12:30 am. City have one last game left against Brentford.
