Kevin De Bruyne: Manchester City midfielder named PFA Player of the Year 2020 |  Football news

Kevin De Bruyne tied the Premier League assists record with 20 last season

Kevin De Bruyne was named the 2020 Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year and Bethany England from Chelsea received the women’s award.

The midfielder defeated Sadio Mane, Virgil van Dyck, Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold to win the Liverpool title to become the first Manchester City award winner.

Alexander-Arnold nevertheless won the PFA Young Player of the Year award, beating young England players Tammy Abraham, Mason Greenwood, Mason Mount, Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka.

City fell behind the Reds with a total of 18 points in the 2019/20 Premier League season, but De Bruyne, who scored 13 goals and a record 20 assists, was voted the best player in the campaign by his peers and quickly thanked his manager for handing him the full creative license.

De Bruyne praised the contribution of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola to his achievements.

“Most of the time, he allows me to be myself,” the 29-year-old said of Guardiola. “We often talk about the team, but in many ways he knows that when he gives orders about what the team should do, I will listen.

“But on the other hand, he gives me a lot of freedom; I don’t know why, it just happens between us.

“He knows that in one sense I will always put the team first, and then, obviously, if I can help myself, I will.

“But he knows that I want the team to win, and if the team wins, I will benefit from it. So I think in that sense he feels good and trusts me completely. “

“This first taste of success and the opportunity to raise trophies will never stop, and the disappointments that come along the way also fuel this hunger,” said Alexander-Arnold.

“So it’s probably the perfect combination of wanting to be successful and not wanting to experience the frustrations we have experienced in the past.

“And I think both as a team and as an individual, the mentality is to keep going forward because we haven’t finished yet.”

talking and political animal

There is Ludwig Wittgenstein: language is not only used to describe reality, we also use it to ask for favors, to give thanks, to curse, to greet, to pray…

And it is necessary to take into account the context, the situation, the use. “It’s raining” can state the fact that it’s really raining. But suppose that the mother in the morning, when the son is getting ready for school, says to him: “It is raining”, he at the same time knows that he must take an umbrella. If in a peasant family, after a long drought, as now, the wife opens the window and says to her husband: “It is raining,” then this speaks of contentment. But if you were expecting a pleasant walk and you say, “It’s raining,” you’re in for a disappointment.
Language performs three main functions: expressive, appellative and representative. These functions are related to the relationship established between sender, receiver and objects: there is someone (the sender) who addresses someone (the receiver) to tell him something, making reality real.

Championship in Qatar and final in Moscow

Championship in Qatar and final in Moscow

To write without mentioning the World Cup, which started this week in Qatar, could be considered pedantic. I don’t want to fall into this trap. So, from what has happened so far, I highlight the courage of the Iranian team, which was silent, did not sing when their national anthem was played. This attitude was extraordinary. This emphatically marked the support of the players for the people of their country, who were on the streets for weeks to challenge the medieval rule of the Shia clerics and fight for freedom and equality in the treatment of all, men and people. women. This is not a mixture of football and politics. There are others, at the top of the state, who do this. Yes, this is a memory that human rights should be above all. Whenever politics is built on this basis at the domestic and international levels, the world will be completely different, more harmonious and benevolent. And less cynically, in the political sphere.

The show, set in Qatar, reminds us of three important facts. First, the diversity of the peoples of the globe. The culture of each of them must be respected and appreciated. We always have the opportunity to learn something from others. And racism has no place either in sports or in everyday life. Secondly, there are rivers of money flowing around football. I’m not talking about the billions spent by the host country. I will only mention that the great football teams are in the northern hemisphere: of the 32 participants in the tournament, about 22 come from the richest countries. This game is played in almost every corner of the world, big stars are known everywhere, but without resources there are no victories, without currency clubs and tackles nothing more than a fraudulent stock. Thirdly, football revives primal nationalisms, anything as long as you win, including the blessing of the hand of God, in the famous version of Maradona. Not the best will win, but my selection. This is not a sport, this is blinding anything, with a lit candle and faith in God.
