The nominees for the PFA Fans’ Player of the Year award have been announced, and our very own Philippe Coutinho is among the ten finalists.
The Brazilian playmaker has been superb this season, and has unquestionably been the standout performer in our campaign.
We look like missing out on the top four this season, but Coutinho has certainly been a silver lining. His performances in 2015 in particular have been exceptional, and at times he has singlehandedly dragged us over the line.
He has been named alongside the likes of Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, and Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero – who have all had fantastic seasons for their own clubs. The fact that he is being recognised among players of this calibre says a lot about his quality, and he looks to be one of our best signings in a while.
He may miss out on the award this season, but if he keeps improving at the rate he has done then he will definitely be a candidate for years to come.
