Ibrahim Afellay is the only PSV player who has been included in the Eredivisie team of the season 2008/09 . Along with Afellay, Dirk Marcellis was named in last year's team, but this time the PSV defender, who has had an excellent season, was beaten on points by Andreas Granqvist.
Afellay named for the second consecutive time
The election for the annual team of the season used to be dominated by PSV players, but things have changed the past two seasons. Champions AZ had four players and their coach nominated. As many as 72, 645 visitors of the official website of Dutch football magazine Voetbal International gave their votes to the candidates. FC Twente had three players nominated for the team of the season. Ronnie Stam and Edson Braafheid were the best full backs in the 2008/09 season, while Eljero Elia was named the best left winger. The Ajax players Jan Vertonghen and Luis Suarez, FC Groningen defender Andreas Granqvist and Ibrahim Afellay have also won a place in the team of the season. The PSV midfielder was named in the team of the season for the second consecutive time. He faced tough competition from Stijn Schaars and eventually beat the AZ captain on points. Afellay and Schaars got 34, 763 and 31, 9000 votes, respectively.
