The Belgium international has been a mainstay of the Premier League’s best defence after having helped Spurs concede just 30 goals in 37 Premier League games this term.
Alderweireld has also chipped in with a number of valuable goals, too, scoring four goals in 37 top-flight games for the north London side in a dramatic 2015/16 campaign.
The 27-year-old centre-half picked up his player of the year award ahead of Tottenham’s 2-1 defeat by Southampton at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Sunday.
The Belgian defender posted the above photo and wrote the following message on his Instagram page: “Very honoured to have the members player of the season award. We now focus on Sunday & will do everything to finish 2nd. #COYS”
Tottenham are in second place in the Premier League table and two points ahead of Arsenal as Mauricio Pochettino’s side look to finish above their north London rivals for the first time.
