“Any of the people that have been voted deserve to win it, it is obvious, I feel all that, I have managed to do it three times.
“All the players that have been up for it, even some of the ones that haven’t been up for it deserve it. It shows that, as a team, we are improving and, hopefully, we can continue doing that.”
