Lucy Bronze, 28, who won a third successive Champions League title with Lyon before returning to Manchester City in September after three years at Lyon, is on a shortlist with Chelsea’s Pernille Harder and Lyon’s Wendie Renard.
Bronze beat Ellen White and Beth Mead to win the women’s award for the second time in her career.
The 28-year-old helped the Lionesses lift the SheBelieves Cup for the first time in March and was also part of the team that made it to the semi-finals of the 2019 FIFA World Cup in France.
The Lyon full-back also clinched the Division 1 Feminine, the Coupe de France Feminine and the inaugural Trophee des Championnes with the French side and was named the UEFA Women’s Player of the Year in August:
Jordan Henderson and Lucy Bronze were named the 2019 England Players of the Year. Both players won the UEFA Champions League with their clubs in the 2018-19 season. Henderson captained Liverpool to victory over Tottenham Hotspur in May, while Bronze won the tournament for a second time with Lyon.
Manchester City always opt for the best and Lucy Bronze is one of them.
