Did Gareth Bale deserve to win both PFA awards? - originally posted on Soccerlens.comTottenham star Gareth Bale picked up both the PFA Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards on Sunday night, having been voted the cream of the Premier League crop by his peers for this season.
There is no denying that Bale has had a superb campaign, particularly since Christmas, scoring memorable goals at vital times for his side. Strikes away to Norwich City, West Brom and West Ham stand out as the best among his 19 league goals so far.
He is a phenomenal footballer who is only going to get better, but have his performances justified winning both prestigious awards?
