Fans slam ‘criminal’ omission of Tottenham star Son Heung-min in PFA Team of the Year despite him winning the Golden Boot… as others lament Man City midfielder Rodri also not being selected in the Premier League XI

Football fans have slammed the ‘criminal’ omission of Tottenham star Son Heung-min from the PFA Team of the Year.

Son was not selected in the team, announced at a virtual awards ceremony on Thursday, despite finishing as the Premier League’s joint-top goalscorer with Mohamed Salah.

The South Korean and Salah both ended on 23 goals but there was no room for Son in the front three of the divisional XI, voted for by players.

Son Heung-min’s omission from the PFA Team of the Year caused a stir on social media

Son was overlooked in favour of Salah, Sadio Mane and Cristiano Ronaldo – a controversial inclusion given Manchester United’s dismal campaign.

‘No Son in this team is criminal,’ one fan said on social media, with a second blasting Son not making the side as a ‘disgrace’.

Another added: ‘Ronaldo and Mane over Son?’, while one fan simply asked: ‘Where’s Son?’

‘Son won the golden boot with no penalties ffs,’ another Twitter user said.

Son has also been described as ‘one of the most underrated players’ in the Premier League following his failure to make the Team of the Year.

Others lamented Manchester City midfielder Rodri not being selected, with Liverpool’s Thiago Alcantara included instead.

‘How the hell has Rodri not got in,’ one Twitter user asked, while another believed Thiago was ‘nowhere near’ the standard of the City midfielder last term.

‘Did Liverpool win the league?’ asked one sarcastic social media account. 

City were crowned champions on the final day as they pipped Liverpool to the title by a point. The PFA voting closed long before the season ended.
