‘Absolute Hero’ ‘Well Deserved’ – Fans Congratulate Sheffield United Ace After Player Of The Year Nomination

Sheffield United captain Billy Sharp has been nominated for the Championship Player of the Year. The striker has also been named in the Championship’s Team of the Season.

The 33-year-old took to Twitter to thank all of the managers who voted for him:

Fans were quick to congratulate Sharp who has been integral to the Blades’ push for automatic promotion this campaign:

The veteran forward has hit the back of the net 22 times in the Championship this season, just two behind the league’s top goalscorer: Norwich City’s Teemu Pukki who has scored 24.

Manager Chris Wilder has used Sharp more sparingly in recent weeks, with his last goals coming in the remarkable 3-3 draw against Aston Villa at the beginning of February.

Sheffield United supporters will be hoping he can return to his prolific best between now and the end of the campaign, to help fire the Blades into the Premier League.
