The Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong feels very strongly that the Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker has not earned the right to be included in the PFA’s shortlist for Player-Of-The-Year, and believes that Arsenal’s Alex Song should have been installed in his place.
As soon as Frimpong heard the news he went straight on Twitter and exclaimed: “Am Sorry But this is utter nonsense. How is Scott Parker choosen Ahead of Alex Song for PFA player of the Year. How song wish he was English”
He quickly followed that up with: “Scott Parker is A good Player Yes Agreed But Overall Song is better Scores more creates more better passing…#justsaying”
And then one of his followers (Janggun) gave us these stats for the two players: “@Frimpong26AFC…scott parker – 20 games goals – 0 assists -0 …..alex song – 41 games goals -1 assists – 14″
I think Mr Frimpong definitely has a point, but is he right that Parker was picked simply because he is English?
