Followers of the Premier League are seething with rage after Jordan Ayew’s goal against West Ham was excluded from the list of Goal of the Season nominees.
Ayew danced his way through three defenders before dinking the ball over the West Ham goalkeeper to score a goal which has been described by many as the most outstanding of the just ended PL season.
But in a shortlist released on Friday, Ayew’s goal was conspicuously missing from the nine-man list.
The nominees include Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes, City’s Kevin De Brunye and Son Heung Ming of Tottenham among others.
Ayew’s snub has led to backlash on social media with some football fans questioning the criteria for the selections.
The tweeps argue that Ayew’s goal which won the Crystal Palace Goal of the Season should have made the cut.
Some reckon his goal is better than all the goals which have been nominated.
Below are some tweets
Ayew’s is the goal of the season and it’s not even nominated. Half of these are just average goals. pic.twitter.com/gdOZ39jeca— Adam Cavanagh (@AdamCavo) August 7, 2020
