He said “these awards are extra special to players because they are voted by your peers.”

The 24-year-old Kerr claimed the women’s award for the second time after being honored in 2013. She is currently the leading goalscorer in the United States National Women’s Soccer League.

Kerr said “to be voted by your fellow players as the PFA Footballer of the year is a huge honor.”
