The premier league being arguably the most competitive league in Europe, features many talented players across the various clubs. Among these players is the person of Kelvin De Bruyne; he is arguably the best playmaker in the league, and one of the best in the world.
Since his debut in the premier league, he has achieved so many feats, helping Manchester City to clinch so many trophies, and emerging as the assist king in many of these occasions, winning so many awards.
Despite all this excellent achievements and performances, there is an award in the Premier League which he has not been able to win for the past five years. What could that award be?
It is no other award than the "Premier League Player Of The Month Award". This award is usually given to the most deserving player, considering his performances in the league for that month.
Bruno Fernandes on the other hand, who joined the premier league about a year ago, has been able to clinch the award for a record 4 times, making him the first ever in the history of the league to achieve this feat.
