Reactions as Bukayo Saka is excluded from PL best young player nomination


- Advertisment -

The Premier League on Friday released the list of players with outstanding performances in the recently concluded 2019/2020 Premier League season.

Premier League sides – Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City had their players featured in the player of the season and best young player of the season categories.

For the player of the season, Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane, City’s Kevin De Bryne, Southampton’s Danny Ings, Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope and Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy were nominated.

Manchester United’s trio of Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish, Wolves goalkeeper Dean Henderson and Chelsea duo – Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic all featured in the nominee’s list for the best young player of the season.

Expectedly, some Premier League football fans have criticised the lists for the exclusion of Arsenal duo of Pierre-Emmerick Aubameyang who scored 22 goals in the Player of the Season category and in the second category, his teammate Bukayo Saka, who has been touted as one of the biggest revelations of the 2019/2020 Premier League season.

Moments after the nominees for both categories were announced, fans expressed varying views for Aubameyang and particularly Saka’s exclusion from the list.

Saka, a versatile academy graduate enjoyed a stunning breakthrough campaign at Arsenal as he notched 11 goals and four assists. He played at the team’s defence when injury hit the team and also featured in the Arsenal midfield and attack.

Fans, who are in awe of the youngster’s performance for the season, believe he deserved a place in the young player of the season nominees list.
