Robin Van Persie named PFA Player of the Year

Robin van Persie Hot favourite Arsenal striker Robin van Persie was named PFA Player of the Year, while Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker was the surprise recipient of the Young Player of the Year award.

Netherlands international Van Persie beat fellow nominees Sergio Aguero, Joe Hart, Scott Parker, Wayne Rooney and David Silva to the prestigious prize, won last year by Tottenham's Gareth Bale.

The Arsenal captain has had arguably the best season of his career, scoring 33 goals in all competitions. His 27 in the Premier League have fired the Gunners up to third place with three games of the season remaining.

"If other people are saying it, it is special, but it is even more special if your opponents are saying it," he told Press Association Sport.

"It is very special because you are playing against them week in week out and every single player does everything to win and in the end if they make up their minds that I'm the best player it is a big honour."
