Nani tops the Premier League’s assist table, helping his team mates to 18 goals as well as having 10 goals of his own this term yet his efforts weren’t enough to see him included on the list.
The decision raised more than a few eyebrows amongst fans but it isn’t just fans who are baffled by the decision as John O’Shea has added his voice in support of Nani.
The defender claims he is ‘amazed’ at the decision not to include his team mate on the seven strong list saying,
“I am pretty amazed by that, maybe because he was still eligible for the young player, people didn’t vote for him for the senior player.
“He is a constant threat. Defenders don’t know whether he is going to go on his left and his right and his combination with Patrice Evra was excellent.”
