"Winning the Trophée UNFP for Ligue 1 Player of the Year is really special," the Uruguay international told PSG TV after the ceremony. "It is the reward for all the hard work throughout the season. It's an individual award and I prefer to win as a team... But I am still very happy because I work hard every day. I would like to thank my teammates who also work hard to keep winning trophies and who gave me the chance to win this award. I'm very happy. I think I've had a good season and I hope to continue this way. I am delighted to have won this award with Paris Saint-Germain."
