Celtic defender Mikael Lustig is one of three Swedes nominated for his country's defender of the year award.
Along with Krasnodar's Andreas Granqvist, and Werder Bremen's Ludwig Augustinsson, Lustig's performances for Celtic have been recognised in his homeland.
Lustig modestly discussed two players he felt should have also been nominated.
He discussed Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson, telling Expressen: "Also "Ponne" (Pontus Jansson) has been extremely talented at Leeds. He could have been with (us)."
Jansson became a fan favourite at Leeds after joining from Torino, signing a permanent deal in the summer and a new contract extension just last month.
Lustig also argued that Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof should have been nominated, due to his performances for Benfica earlier in the year.
He said: "He has won the double with Benfica and made a huge transition this summer. It's pretty alright. Of course he should have been there."
Lustig, 30, signed a new contract with Celtic back in January and has been a regular in Brendan Rodgers' history making side.
He has made 22 appearances for Celtic already this season in all competitions, providing two assists.
