He also feels that team-mate Sergio Aguero has been overlooked.

UEFA announced their nominees for this seasons UEFA Team of the Year this week and understandably there was always going to be some debate as to who was included on the list.

The Premier League is represented by Chelsea pair Thibaut Courtois and Diego Costa, Manchester United winger Angel Di Maria and Arsenal sensation Alexis Sanchez; none of whom played for their current clubs last season.

While there is also significant Manchester City interest on the list.

Yaya Toure is nominated among the midfielders while they also had Vincent Kompany and Pablo Zabaleta nominated in defence.

Of course there are also some big names missing - including from Manchester City and Chelsea.

A point Kompany pointed out on Twitter.

He made it clear that while he was proud to have been nominated for the award, he felt that two of his team-mates for club and country have been left out unfairly.

He believes that Sergio Aguero and Eden Hazard, team-mates for City and with Belgium, should have been on the list.

It is hard to argue against the idea if the City and Chelsea man being present but it must be remembered that this list is for performances in UEFA competitions - nothing else.

So perhaps their omission is justified.
