Phil Foden has been named the 2023/24 Premier League Player of the Season.

The Manchester City midfielder has been recognised with the prestigious prize after enjoying an outstanding campaign in which he has played a key role in our bid to win what would be an historic fourth title consecutive Premier League men’s title.

It has been the 23-year-old’s most impressive season yet with Foden underpinning City’s quest for what would a sixth title in seven years with 25 goals – the most prolific tally of his Etihad career to date - and 11 assists.


April’s brace of goals in our 4-0 win at Brighton also saw Foden pass the 50 goal Premier League landmark for the Club.

23-year-old Foden has been at the heart of City’s superb form across the campaign with Pep Guardiola’s side still firmly in contention to lift both the Premier League and FA Cup, having already won the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup titles earlier this season.

The Academy graduate has also operated in a variety of positions for Guardiola’s team, demonstrating his supreme quality both being deployed wide and also operating in a more central creative role.

This latest plaudit comes on the back of Foden being voted the 2023/24 Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year earlier this month.

“To win this award is an achievement that I am extremely proud of,” Foden said.

“The Premier League is acknowledged as the greatest league in the world, and it is a pleasure to have been nominated with so many other great players who have all enjoyed special seasons for their clubs.

“Overall, I’ve been very happy with the way I have played this season and really pleased that I have been able to contribute with the goals and assists throughout the season.

“I’d like to thank all of the City staff, coaches and especially my teammates because without them this wouldn’t be possible.

“And I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who voted for me as the award means a lot.”

Remarkably, it’s the fifth season in a row that a City player has won the prestigious prize.

Kevin De Bruyne collected the award in both 2019/20 and 2021/22, Ruben Dias was the recipient in 2020/21 while Erling Haaland took last year’s prize.

Vincent Kompany was also voted Player of the Season in 2011/12.

Everyone at Manchester City would like to congratulate Phil on this latest prestigious accolade.
