Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood shortlisted for PFA Young Player of the Year award
The Professional Footballers’ Association announced their nominees for their prestigious awards on Friday. No United player was nominated for the Player of the Year awards. But that is not the case in the Young Players category.
Rashford is coming off the best season in his career and could be in line to win the award.
The 22-year-old has proven himself to be a hero both on and off the pitch. His 17 goals and 8 assists in the Premier League show off his aptitude as a player. Meanwhile, his charitable efforts have made him an inspiration to follow.
Greenwood, on the other hand, is coming off a breakthrough season that has seen his reputation rise by leaps and bounds. His performances saw him get called up by Gareth Southgate for national duty for the first time.
Both players were instrumental in our charge to the third spot post the restart. While we would have liked them both to receive the award, unfortunately only one of them can win. Hopefully, it will be a Red Devil.
The United duo will face off against Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold, Chelsea duo Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount, and Arsenal wonderkid Bukayo Saka for the award.
In our opinion, the Liverpool star will pose the greatest threat to our lads winning the award. Not only has the youngster reinvented the role of a full-back but looks to be on his way at being a generational player.

The last United player to win the award was the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo in 2007.
If either of the players can follow in the Portuguese’s foosteps, they will have done very well indeed.
