Has UEFA put Ronaldo on their typical team despite the votes of internet users?


Instrumentalization of democracy or logical arrangement? UEFA finds itself at the heart of a small controversy after unveiling Wednesday the typical team of the year of the fans, formed after more than two million online votes. And according to the British tabloid the Daily Mail, the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo in this eleven is not the pure product of popular will …

The newspaper claims that the Juventus Turin striker came only fourth in the attacking category, behind his Barça rival Lionel Messi, Liverpool player Sadio Mané or Bayern Munich center-forward Robert Lewandowski. In order not to get one of the biggest stars in world football out of the team, UEFA would have chosen to opt for a 4-2-4, ejecting a midfielder from this formation. In this case, the French Chelsea N’Golo Kanté.

“The formation of the team of the year was chosen to reflect the votes of the supporters in parallel with the achievements of the players in UEFA competitions,” said a UEFA spokesperson, contacted by the Daily Mail. As a result, there are five Champions League winners and four League of Nations finalists (Editor’s note: between Portugal by Ronaldo and the Netherlands by De Jong, De Ligt and Van Dijk ). The training changes regularly and this year is no exception. “

A year ago, the governing body of European football opted for a 4-3-3. But two seasons ago, the typical team of supporters was arranged in a 4-4-2, which included the right side of PSG Dani Alves.
