Chelsea defender John Terry has revealed on Instagram his nominations for the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and the PFA Young Player of the Year awards.
The former England international defender has nominated Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho for the Player of the Year award and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane for the Young Player of the Year gong (he is not allowed to nominate players from his own team).
Coutinho is a surprise choice for the Player of the Year award, as he has been playing well only for the past three or so months.
The Brazil international did not have a great first half of the season, although he has been arguably the best creative outlet for Liverpool in recent weeks.
The 22-year-old former Inter Milan youngster has scored four goals and created 40 chances in 28 Premier League appearances so far this season, while having a pass accuracy of 80% and a shot accuracy of 51%.
No one should be surprised with Terry’s nomination of Kane for the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
The Tottenham youngster has been arguably the best outfield player for the North London outfit this campaign, earning himself a call-up to the latest England squad in the process.
Kane has scored nine goals and created 23 chances in 27 Premier League appearances so far this campaign, while having a pass accuracy of 75% and a shot accuracy of 60%.
