English Premier League defending champions Man City Star Raheem sterling has taken side with his England national teammate, Harry Kane to land the PFA player of the year award ahead of Liverpool star Virgil Van Dijk.

The Reds star defender Vigil Van Dijk and Raheem Sterling, alongside Harry Kane of Tottenham, have been selected for the prestigious award with a number of pundits already calling the shot on who deserves the award.

Raheem Sterling seems to have taken the Premier League title rivalry against Liverpool to heart as he said that the Reds defender should not be given the award.

According to the Pep Guardiola star player, Harry Kane has done enough to deserve landing the award, knowing that he helped his team with a big Premier League challenge while they are also in the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

However, Virgil Van Dijk has confessed to having voted for Raheem Sterling after he impressed this season with 17 goals and 9 assists for the defending Champions.

Meanwhile, the Liverpool star is also a front runner after he helped his team to record one of the best defenses in the English Premier League and Europe in general.
