David De Gea has become the first player in Manchester United's history to win the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award four times, after receiving the accolade on Tuesday night. The goalkeeper also received the club's Players' Player of the Year award.
After receiving Players' Player of the Year award, David De Gea thanked his teammates, and stated his aim to win the FA Cup (via club's official website):
The Spanish international won the award in three consecutive seasons between 2013 and 2016, - thus tying with previous record holder Cristiano Ronaldo - but was pipped to the award by fellow Spaniard Ander Herrera last season.
Following an astounding season in goal however, David De Gea has rightfully reclaimed the award.
The 27-year-old has kept an impressive 17 Premier League clean sheets this season, making 110 saves in 35 league appearances. Astoundingly, half of the saves that David De Gea has made this season have been from shots within the penalty area.
"I'm pretty pleased with my performance. It's been a fairly complete, all round set of performances from me.
