Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah has missed out on a nomination for the PFA Player of the Year shortlist – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are upset with the news.
The Professional Footballers’ Association have announced on their official website the six nominees for the 2019/20 Player the Year award.
Liverpool, who won their first ever Premier League title, have four representatives with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk all included.
Meanwhile, the Manchester City duo of Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling complete the six-man shortlist.
Salah, who won the prize in the 2017/18 season, has missed out on a nomination for the last campaign despite playing a major role in Liverpool’s success.
The Egyptian right-winger finished the season with 23 goals across all competitions and 19 came in the Premier League, while 10 of his 13 assists were also in top-flight action.
He’s been such an instrumental figure at Anfield in recent years during success under manager Jurgen Klopp and has continued to perform at such a high standard.
A selection of Liverpool supporters on social media are mystified that the 28-year-old didn’t receive a nomination for his latest season.
Here are some Reds fans discussing Salah’s exclusion for the PFA award:
Salah should be there, sterling there because of English bias!!!
