Man City's Foden and Shaw win FWA Footballer of the Year awards


Manchester City pair Phil Foden and Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw have won their respective Footballer Writers’ Association’s Footballer of the Year awards for the 2023/24 season.

It is the second time that two Man City players have won the men’s and women’s awards, with Raheem Sterling and Nikita Parris doing so in 2019.

Foden won 42 per cent of members votes and is the third Man City player in four years to win the men’s Footballer of the Year award after Ruben Dias in 2021 and Erling Haaland in 2023.
