[Best Tweets]: Fans React to Liverpool’s Simon Mingolet winning the POTY Award


Liverpool goal keeper Simon Mignolet has won the Player of the Year award last night on the Liverpool Legends Gala Award Dinner. Note this was not the official LFC Player of the award event; it was at the former players ‘5 Times Liverpool Legends’.

Mignolet struggled early on in the season and was forced to drop to the bench by Brendan Rodgers for his poor performances. However, he returned strongly in the second half of the season and produced some outstanding performances  for the Reds. 

The Belgian has kept 14 clean sheets this season, tied with Southampton’s Fraser Forster, and is one of the favourites to win the Golden Glove award at the end of the season.

It was a shock for many to see Philippe Coutinho, who was nominated for the Premier League Player of the Year, wasn’t selected as Liverpool’s best player this season.

The decision to give Mignolet POTY award, even if it was not the LFC official one, has baffled many Liverpool fans. We take a look at some of the best twitter reactions from the Red fans.
