Football writers make it 2-0 to Tel on the award front

Last updated : 02 May 2003 By Chris Parry
Tel has already scooped the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year award this year, so this one makes it a "double" - hopefully not his last "double" of the season either.

The chairman of the FWA Gerry Cox said:

"Thierry Henry is a worthy winner who has scored some magnificent goals this season and made another massive contribution to Arsenal's season. Henry made all the early running when the poll opened, but was challenged by van Nistelrooy in a race which mirrored Arsenal and Manchester United's fight for the title."

And of course we all know that the award is with the rightful recipient don't we?
