BETADDA

Football News: Bukayo Saka’s nomination for the Premier League Player of the Season award ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo has been described as “laughable” by Rio Ferdinand.

Saka, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jarrod Bowen, Joao Cancelo, Kevin De Bruyne, Mohamed Salah, Son Heung-min, and James Ward-Prowse are among the players nominated for the prize, according to the Premier League.

Despite scoring 18 goals and giving three assists in the league this season, Ronaldo was not included in the shortlist. In the same competition, Saka has 11 goals and six assists.

Arsenal will finish ahead of Manchester United in the table, despite Ronaldo’s involvement in more goals than his 20-year-old rival.

Since his return to English football, Ronaldo has won the Player of the Month award twice, in September and April. Despite this, Ferdinand is dissatisfied with the decision of the regulatory body.

“Is Saka in the Player of the Year nominees?” asked the former defender on his YouTube show Vibe with Five, who spent six years playing alongside Ronaldo. “

Saka would not have been in there as well as he has. No way would I have picked him over Ronaldo this season. Three or four of those men in there should be ahead of Ronaldo. He’s unlikely to win, but the list of nominees is ridiculous.

“He’ll take it as a slight, but these are the things that motivate him; ‘How dare you?’ he’ll think. If it’s based on statistics, he’ll say things like, ‘I’ve scored more goals than the majority of the players on that list except for Salah, so what are you talking about?'”
