Liverpool striker Luis Suarez and Chelsea winger Eden Hazard both gave rare interviews in accepting their awards at the PFA dinner last night.
While Suarez claimed the overall PFA Player of the Year award, Hazard, who narrowly missed out on the main prize, picked up the Young Player award.
Both players were visibly moved by their accolades, and overcame their lack of confidence in English to address their fellow professionals.
Suarez said his award is "95%" due to his Liverpool teammate, and also dedicated the award to his family - in fact he appeared on the verge of tears as he talked of his wife and children.
Suarez later said that "I am so happy for this prize because you work really good all season. I think it's more important (what happens with) the teammates."
Hazard admitted his English was "not good", then failed to understand presenter Jake Humphrey's next question. However, the Belgian star recovered his composure to thank his teammates and staff.
Hazard also claimed he has had a "good season" and also thanked the Chelsea fans for their support during his time in England.
While Suarez has been the outstanding striker in English football this season, leading Liverpool to the brink of the title, Hazard has wowed crowds in both England and Europe, and propelled his team to the semi-finals of the Champions League.
