The Tottenham playmaker has now won the award two years in a row.
The Dane had a poor game against Crystal Palace, a change in tact from his recent excellent performances. But he was also named the Danish Player of the Year later that evening.
Eriksen, who also won the award last year, beat the likes of Leicester City stopper Kasper Schmeichel, Bayern Munich youngster Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Ajax winger Lasse Schone to the gong.
In winning the award two years in a row he is only the second player to pull off that feat, following in the footsteps of VfB Stuttgart midfielder William Kvist, who won in 2010 and 2011.
The former Liverpool defender left Anfield in the summer to rejoin boyhood club Brondby, leaving Anfield a Liverpool cult hero due to his tattoos of the club, never say die attitude and 232 appearances for The Reds.
But this morning he paid homage to the Tottenham star for joining him on two awards. He stated on Twitter...
Translated that reads, 'Congratulations @ChrisEriksen8 [Christian Eriksen] for being crowned footballer of the year fully deserved after a great year!!'
And at just 22-years-old he must have the record of four gongs held by Brian Laudrup firmly in his sights.
