City striker Holland received the best award. Manchester City striker Arling Holland has been selected as the Footballer of the Year for the 2022-23 season by the Footballer Writers Association. He was the first Norwegian footballer to achieve this feat. Although satisfied with such an achievement, Holland is reluctant to look for relief now. Citizens want to win the treble for the first time.
Waiting for a long season of shaving. Fatigue still does not touch him. Scandinavian in race, blood of Vikings in body. Norwegian Arling Holland is his own example.
However, a season ago when he broke up with Borussia and tied the knot in the City camp, who would have thought that there would be so much talk about Holland before the end of the calendar. Already scored 52 goals in 51 matches in sky blue jersey. 36 in 35 matches in EPL. Recognition of such great continuity is going on in various ways. This time he got the Footballer Writers Association (FWA) Footballer of the Year title for the season 2022-23.
This award is given to the best footballer who participated in the English league every season. This time there were 67 people in this list. However, no one was even close to Holland in terms of points. He got 82 percent of the total votes.
But still the main work remains. Even after winning the EPL, the thrill of the Champions League, RFA Cup final awaits. Holland wants to find relief this season only by winning the treble at City.
Manchester City striker Arling Holland said, ‘This kind of recognition will motivate you to be more mentally strong. I am very lucky to have a great team. This would not have been possible without the support of all the coaches and teammates. But I think there is still a lot of work to be done. In particular we have two important finals. So my focus is on those matches for now.’
At the same time, a rare feat is approaching in front of Holland. With 13 more goals this season, the Norwegian will surpass Dixie Dean’s unique record of 64 goals in 1927-28 season. But that may not be possible in the end.
