Loads of Man Utd fans in disbelief as Lampard nominated ahead of Solskjaer for award

The Premier League Manager of the Season nominees have been announced as Jurgen Klopp, Chris Wilder, Brendan Rodgers and Frank Lampard. 

Manchester United fans have taken to social media to gesticulate over the nominees, feeling the decision to overlook Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and select Lampard was unfair.

Solskjaer guided United to a third placed finish in the league in his first full season in charge when at one stage it looked like the Reds would miss out on European qualification altogether.

Chelsea, meanwhile, lost their third place spot in the final games of the season but managed to finish in fourth to secure Champions League qualification.

Solskjaer’s United side did the double over Chelsea in the league this term, with the 2-0 away victory at Stamford Bridge a springboard for the Reds to finish their last 14 games of the season unbeaten.

Lampard was clearly nominated for securing a Champions League place with a transfer ban and having just lost the club’s best player in Eden Hazard.

Admittedly, United’s season was transformed by the January arrival of Bruno Fernandes, but supporters are still frustrated to see their Norwegian boss ignored when his side finished above Chelsea.

Brendan Rodgers is also arguably a controversial choice after his Leicester side threw away a large points advantage to relinquish a Champions League spot on the final day of the season.
