Man United fans are all expressing the same sentiments about the Ballon d’Or nominees

Manchester United fans have expressed a common sentiment regarding the list of Ballon d’Or nominees.

Lionel Messi and Erling Haaland are at the forefront of the 30-player list for the prestigious 2023 award, following its official announcement on Wednesday.

Among the nominees are André Onana, Josko Gvardiol, Karim Benzema, Jamal Musiala, Mohamed Salah, Jude Bellingham, Bukayo Saka, Randal, Kolo Muani, Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Emiliano Martínez, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, Rúben Dias, Nicolo Barella, Erling Haaland, Yassine Bounou, Martin Ødegaard, Julián Álvarez, Ilkay Gündogan, Vinícius Júnior, Lionel Messi, Rodri, Lautaro Martínez, Antoine Griezmann, Robert Lewandowski, Kylian Mbappé, Kim Min-jae, Victor Osimhen, Luka Modric, and Harry Kane.

However, Manchester United fans have expressed their bewilderment at the absence of Marcus Rashford, with many sharing their thoughts on social media.

One fan tweeted: “Getting 30 goals and 11 assists across all club competitions in 56 games and not getting put on the list of Ballon D’or nominees especially ahead of some of the scrubs on that list should honestly be a war crime.

“I’ve never been more shocked by a football list as I am right now”, another added.

Imagine how Rashford feels right now damn”, a third remarked.

“These awards make no sense at all”, another exclaimed.

“Arsenal fan here, but its really surprising how Rashford didn’t make the list tbf”, a separate tweet read.

While a fifth fan pleaded: “Is it till he turns water into wine that he’ll be recognised? Not in the Epl team of the season now this, so sad.”

Indeed, Rashford enjoyed an excellent second half of the season and finished fifth in the Premier League goalscoring charts on 17 goals. While he was voted for the 2022/23 PFA Fans’ Player of the Year award.

However, rival fans believe the 25-year-old hasn’t done enough to warrant being a part of the list.

“Rashford only had a 3 months run of form, not enough for nomination tbh”, wrote user wrote on Twitter.

“Winning the Carabao Cup doesn’t get you nominated”, another joked.
