John Terry has revealed his PFA Player of the Year choices on his Instagram account. He picked Harry Kane as his Young Player of the Year and perhaps surprisingly, chose Liverpool’s Phillipe Coutinho as his Player of the Year.
The Liverpool midfielder has been in fine form but is not considered one of the favourites to be crowned as the season’s best player. Instead Kane and Terry’s Chelsea teammate Eden Hazard - who he can’t pick - are expected to fight it out.
Terry’s voting form also revealed his PFA team of the season. He’s selected Manchester United keeper David De Gea in goal, with a back four of Southampton trio Nathaniel Clyne, Ryan Bertrand and Jose Fonte, alongside Arsenal centre back Laurent Koscielny.
The midfield of course includes Coutunho alongside his Liverpool colleague Raheem Sterling. There’s also a space for Southampton’s Sadio Mane, while Terry’s former team-mate Juan Mata is also picked in a clear sign that JT favours his mates. Up front, Kane is partnered with Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero.
It has to be said that this is a very attacking side that would be completely useless in real life, that is reminiscent of Garth Crooks’ team of the week feature on the BBC website. Maybe Terry’s not destined to become the next Chelsea manager after all.
