Eden Hazard from Chelsea was named the Best Belgian player in a Foreign League for 2017, edging Kevin De Bruyne from Manchester City and Dries Mertens from Napoli.
Hazard defeat De Bruyne by 11 votes with 326 while Mertens was 56 voted behind.
De Bruyne had won the award for the past two years and even topped the second round of voting while Mertens won the first round.
But this was not enough to upstage Hazard at the gala ceremony on Wednesday in Belgium where he received the most points for his maiden honour in his home country.
“My first prize in Belgium and certainly not my last one,” Hazard said.
Hazard has scored nine goals and two assists for his club Chelsea.
