Alderweireld has been arguably the best central defender in the Premier League this season and the Belgian's contribution was recently recognised when he earned a place in the PFA Team of the Year.
The 27-year-old is not getting carried away by the accolade though and has stated that he is not a player who craves individual compliments.
Alderweireld told Het Laatsete Nieuws: "I'm not a player who needs recognition if I'm honest.
"It's nice to hear those compliments, it makes you feel good, but I don't get a kick from praise - if you know what I mean.
"I'm happier that I have played two good seasons in a row in England. That's something to be proud of."
