The shortlist for the UEFA Player of the Year award was released on Thursday. Former Barcelona and current PSG star Lionel Messi did not make the list of the top three in Europe.
Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo and PSG’s No. 10 Neymar Jr. are also not on that list. The three on the list are Chelsea’s Angolo Conte, Jorgenho and Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne.
Jজrgenho has been instrumental in helping Italy win the Euro Championship and English club Chelsea win the UEFA Champions League. Conte, on the other hand, has had a great season for the club despite failing at the Euros. He has won the English Premier League and the Champions League. Man City’s Belgian star De Bruyne, on the other hand, has won the English Premier League. He has already won the title of the best player in the Premier League this year.
UEFA is the ‘Union of European Football Associations’. The company awards the best players and coaches in Europe every year. Despite winning the Copa America, the biggest tournament in South America, Messi did not do well last season in Europe. The Catalan club finished third in Spanish La Liga after Barারa collapsed in the Champions League under Messi.
Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus was the top scorer in Serie A, one of the best leagues in Europe. The Portuguese star was also the top scorer in the Euro Championship. It is unbelievable that his name is not in the short list!
