Fergie: I hope one of our players wins PFA Award

Robin van Persie and Michael Carrick have both been named in the shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year award whilst Danny Welbeck features in the nominations for the PFA Young Player of the Year.

Sir Alex Ferguson is pleased that his players have received the recognition they deserve and obviously hopes one of them wins.

“I’m delighted,” he told MUTV. “They deserve to be nominated, there’s no doubt about that. And I obviously hope one of them wins. Robin has had a fantastic season – his goals emphasise the impact he has made at our club. And I think this is Michael’s best ever season at United. He’s been absolutely magnificent. Both of them deserve to be there and I hope one of them wins it. It’s amazing Michael has had to wait until he’s 31 to get nominated for anything!” joked the boss. “He really deserves it. Danny has also shown some great performances this season for us and his country, and I’m delighted for him too.”

  1. Paul Cornelius says:

    Van Persie deserved Pfa player of de year.

  2. Dolorous Redd says:

    Gotta say I really hope Carrick wins it, just so he gets that little bit of long overdue recognition he deserves.

    Not holding my breath though.

    I think if van persie scores 5 goals in 5 remaining fixtures , award will be given to him

  4. United till I die says:

    No offense to wellbeck but he doesn’t deserve a nomination for YPOTY in my opinion.

  5. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Hope RvP gets it.

    Fair to say that the nomination is the prize for Carrick and Danny. Short list for POTY?! That IS something for the CV. Maybe Carrick will start getting more recognition and well deserved but probably not POTY for me if I’m honest.

    Piss take for YPOTY is that De Gea isn’t on it. But I think that is down to our lousy defense for the first 3 months. David has been magnificent.
