Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was awarded the England Player of the Year award after an extremely successful year for both his club and nation. Man City’s Raheem Sterling finished second, while Harry Kane ended up third in the vote. The awards were decided by England fans votes.
The 29-year old midfielder led his Liverpool to Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and Club World Cup glory. He featured in 44 games for the club in the 2018/19 season, playing a total of 2811 minutes.

The midfielder also had a crucial role for England’s national team. He was a regular first-team choice for Gareth Southgate’s side that qualified for Euro 2020. England also finished third in the inaugural League of Nations competition, with Jordan Henderson in the center of the field.
Just a week ago his Liverpool-teammate Sadio Mane grabbed an individual prize, as well. He was selected African Player of the Year.
For the women, Lucy Bronze won her second Player of the Year award after 2015. The 28-year old Lyon defender won the Champions League. She was also an integral part of the England team that reached the semi-finals in the World Cup. In August, Bronze received the UEFA Women’s Player of the Year award.
