Manchester United Player of the Year is called The Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year, and was previously known as the MUFC Members Player of the Year (1988–95). Man Utd Player of the Year is an award presented to the Manchester United fans’ player of the season. The first winner of the award was Brian McClair in 1988, who also became the first player to win it twice when he won in 1992. Since then, six more players have won the award more than once, of which four have won it in consecutive seasons: Roy Keane (1999, 2000), Ruud van Nistelrooy (2002, 2003), Cristiano Ronaldo (2007, 2008) and David de Gea (2014, 2015, 2016). Ronaldo’s 2008 win made him the first player to receive the award on three occasions, having also won in 2004. David de Gea is the first player to win the award four times, having also won in 2018.
