Bruno Fernandes was named the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year for the second year running, claiming the award with a vast majority of the Manchester United fan vote. Luke Shaw got the other major award for the senior men’s team, winning the Players’ Player of the Year for the second time in three seasons.
Although Bruno’s impact faded in the second half of the campaign, he has been consistently productive:
Fernandes has enjoyed another remarkable campaign, scoring 18 times in 36 Premier League starts, claiming nine goals in Europe (Champions League and Europa League) and not forgetting his masterful free-kick winner against Liverpool in the Emirates FA Cup.
He has contributed 11 assists in the Premier League and a further five in Europe and tops many charts for the most creative and productive midfielder around, beating Frank Lampard’s goal record for a midfielder in the Premier League era with his latest strike against Liverpool.
Shaw’s recognition from his teammate is a recognition of his best season date, as he grew from strength to strength over the campaign — eventually becoming as key to United’s attacking play as to their defending.
One Batlle was named the Women’s player of the year, and the fullback was a near ever present in the side this season.
Hannibal Mejbri claimed the prize for the U-23 player of the year after a standout campaign — his first after being promoted from the academy side.
