Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi was not included in the list of Match of the Day’s Premier League Team of the Season and football fans have aired their frustration.
Match of the Day is a popular television programme on BBC which broadcast football matches with in-depth analysis.
Now here is how football enthusiasts have expressed their displeasure following the snubbing of the Nigeria international, who also narrowly missed out on the 2019 African Team of the Year.
“BBC what are you people smoking? Bruno Fernandes that came last week. Ndidi, Madison, Grealish, were all playing cricket this season I’m guessing, if any Manchester United Midfielder should even be considered it’s should be Fred,’’ one said.
Another said: ‘’So Ndidi locked the entire Leicester midfield Down only to be ignored so badly that Bruno Fernández get to be in the team of the season ahead off him?’’
‘’Grealish, Kovacic, Madison, and Ndidi all overlooked for someone who joined in January and played only five games…… absolute shithousery,’’ a third fan said.
See what others also said:
“Why should he make the cut,he has barely played 2 months in the league… Where’s maddinson, Ndidi and other very good midfielders who have done very well this season from August to March.”
‘’It’s bias from the angle of whoever put up the list!’’
“How can Fernandes that play less than 10 games be included in the team of the season. There are better players that deserve to be in the team like Ndidi.’’
‘’It’s an insult to kovacic and ndidi to have bruno in here. Even fred is more deserving.’’
‘’This cannot be my Premier League Team of the season. Mine would have Ndidi and Aubameyang in place of Bruno and Aguero.’’
‘’This is bullshit… Bruno played just 5 matches. Why not choose players that played the whole season… This isnt fair.. Where is ndidi, grealish, Matteo.. Even dean henderson deserves a spot’’
‘’Fernandes 5 games gets in instead of Ndidi, Rodri, Maddison, Neves, Kovacic, Fabinho that have been playing well all season. No Sheff. United players although they’re having the season of their lives and Aguero instead of Vardy. Bullshit.’’
