But, though a superb player, did Kevin De Bruyne actually deserve to win the award this year?

2021 was not his best year for Man City or Belgian, though City did win the Premier League and reach the Champions League final.

But, on the same note, Lionel Messi guided Argentina to the 2021 Copa America and notched the most assists at the tournament (5).
