A few days after the Daily Mail published what they thought was a leaked copy of the PFA’s shortlist for their ‘Player of the Year’ and ‘Young Player of the Year’ awards, the PFA themselves have had a go.
Whereas the Mail had Charlie Adam, Nemanja Vidic, Gareth Bale, Scott Parker, Carlos Tevez and Samir Nasri all up for the senior gong, the actual PFA shortlist sees Tottenham forward Rafael van der Vaart also included to make up a pool of seven nominees.
Nothing like a ‘leak’ to test the water for glaring omissions, eh boys?
Incidentally, the ‘Young Player…’ shortlist is just as the Mail reported, with Nasri, Bale, Joe Hart, Nani, Jack Wilshere and Seamus Coleman all vying for the honour.
