I’m not a madrid fans again, cuz i don resign. because of idiot clueless ronaldho jealous of salah. i dont know may be ronaldo put juju on salah’s head after a suspected angry look at salah. devilish team with ramos a wasted being to his children
I am a Barcelona fan but I supported Madrid, gaskiya that cup must remain in Spain. Spain is the god of UEFA. England still dey learn.
Happy children’s day to all the English teams, wish you guys luck next time.
this list must be a joke without Mane (liverpool)
Uefa are mad..why choose messi over sadio mane..i mean mane beat messi in assist and goals and even got to the final and scored and uefa shamelessly omitted him.. stupid list
Quite frankly I think Mane was excluded because he is West African.
He beats Messi to everything and deserves to be there.
Ronaldo is better than Messi. His alround influence on the game and achievements so far is phenomenal. People should take a look at Cristiano’s records. Many years down the line, It would all be about these records not the dribble run you made on the pitch. Results they say is better than effort.
If it is all about statistics as you claim, then Ronaldo will be considered as the best player of all time. Ronaldo is just a goal scorer, full stop. Even in the madrid team, he is not even the best player,if you will be sincere with yourself. It won’t be all about the record down the line but also performances. This is why we still see Pele & Maradona as the goat & not Rinaldo. Rinaldo does not even come close even with is stats.
