Kompany named Player of the Year


Captain fantastic Vincent Kompany has been named the Barclays Player of the Season after an incredible 2011/12 campaign.

The central defender has been a rock at the back for the title favourites and his leadership has been recognised by a panel of experts in winning this award.

The well-organised City defence, orchestrated by Kompany, has kept 17 clean sheets this campaign leading to another award this time for Joe Hart who collected the top flight's Golden Glove prize.

Not a surprising that Kompany was in the mix for the award but the smart money has been on Robin van Persie picking up the season accolades for 2011/12. It is testament though to the fantastic season Kompany has had, providing the backbone for a league leading (once again) defence.

Don't forget that you can still vote until midnight Sunday evening to determine Bitter and Blue's player of the season here.
