Amad Diallo misses out on Young Player of The Season as EFL Awards announced
The EFL have announced the winners of their end of season awards for the 2022/23 campaign and Sunderland star Amad Diallo has missed out.
Bristol City’s promising playmaker Alex Scott edged Diallo to win the Championship Young Player of the Season award.
In response to his failure to win an award at the star-studded evening at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, Diallo took to social media to vent his frustrations.
He tweeted, ‘Young player, who?’ Followed by a pair of laughing emojis.
Diallo has scored 12 goals in 35 league appearances for Tony Mowbray’s side side this season, as Sunderland continue to battle for the Championship play-off places.
