Chimbonda lands place in Team of the Season

Wigan full-back Pascal Chimbonda was the surprise inclusion in the Professional Footballers' Association Premier League Divisional Awards.

The 27-year-old, who was born in Guadeloupe, was virtually unknown when Paul Jewell brought him to the JJB Stadium last summer from French club Bastia but he has played a huge part in the Latics' impressive season.

Chimbonda has offered an attacking threat from right-back, netting twice during the season, while also being a regular member of Wigan's settled defence which has kept them on course for a top-half finish in their first season after promotion.

Elsewhere in the PFA's FA Premier League Team of the Year, which was voted for by fellow professionals, the top four clubs featured heavily.

Champions Chelsea, who look set to retain their title this season, had John Terry, William Gallas, Joe Cole and Frank Lampard in the XI.

Manchester United had youngsters Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney included, while Liverpool pair Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard were rewarded for their efforts during the campaign.

Newcastle's Shay Given was chosen in goal, while Arsenal striker Thierry Henry completed the line-up.
