LONDON (ENGLAND) – Cristiano Ronaldo gets argued even when he does nothing on or off the pitch. Yesterday Uefa published, as per tradition, the top 11 of the year. In this lineup, Ronaldo was deployed in an unusual four-on-one attack. According to the British media, UEFA would have changed the line-up at the last minute because Ronaldo had not returned to the top 3 of the attackers by receiving less votes than Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski and Sadio Mané.
So to put him on the field at all costs, UEFA had to field this dream team with an unusual 4-2-4, tactical form that no coach in the world would ever choose! If the team had taken the field with a normal tactical form, Cristiano Ronaldo would have been excluded. In his place, the midfielder of Chelsea and the French national team Ngolo Kanté would have been deployed.
UEFA's decision has caused discussion. Marchisio commented with irony on social networks: "Midfielders from all over the world, let's go down to the square …", then he quoted Ligabue's song writing "a life as a median".
UEFA has been forced to provide an explanation why a lot of protests came after its decision to cut Kanté to switch to an absurd tactical module like 4-2-4: "We made this decision both for the votes and for the results. on the field in 2019. Ronaldo won the Nations League with Portugal and received more votes than Kanté even though he received less votes than the other three forwards. "
UEFA TOP 11: Alisson between the posts, four-man defense with Robertson, Van Dijk, De Ligt and Alexander Arnold, two-man midfield with De Bruyne and De Jong, four-man attack with Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski and Sadio Mané. The top 11 is made up of five players from Liverpool, two from Juventus, two from Barcelona, one from Bayern Munich and one from Manchester City.
