EPL: Man City’s Riyad Mahrez reveals who should win Premier League Player of the season
Manchester City winger, Riyad Mahrez, has named Liverpool’s forward, Sadio Mane, as the player that should win the English Premier League Player of the 2019/2020 season.
The annual Professional Footballers’ Association, PFA, Awards would have been scheduled to take place on April 26, but have naturally been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
But Mahrez believes the Senegal international deserves the award because he has improved a lot technically, adding that he scores many goals now.
Asked who should win the award, the Algeria captain told BT Sport: “I think it would be Mane.
“Not too many skills, he’s not a player of skills, but he’s efficient.
“He scores goals, like (Mohamed) Salah, When he was at Southampton, he was good, but he wasn’t as good as now.
“He’s improved a lot technically and in front of the goal. He scores a lot of goals now because he improved a lot. ‘So yeah, I think this year it should be him.”
Mane scored in Liverpool’s 4-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace on Wednesday night to take his goal tally for Jurgen Klopp’s side to 17 in all competitions so far this term.
