Marca Pick A World's Worst XI Of The Year

Marca Pick A World's Worst XI Of The Year

Spanish newspaper Marca have followed up FIFA's controversial announcement of the Fifpro World XI of the Year with their own World's Worst XI.

Social media was in meltdown from football fans on Monday night at the announcement that Sergio Ramos and Marcelo were somehow in the Fifpro World Team of the Year, despite extremely average year.

Whilst the FIFA The Best awards celebrated the best around, surprising I know, Spanish newspaper Marca have celebrated the rubbish with readers voting on the worst team of the last year.

The thing that jumps out straight away is the fact that Manchester United have three players in the XI, and it's difficult to argue against it.

In 18 months at Old Trafford Alexis Sanchez did very little to prove that he was worth the ridiculous wages the Premier League club paid to beat rivals Manchester City to his signing.

The 2018/19 season saw the Chilean score just two goals in 27 games in all competitions and it's no wonder Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was happy to see him go on loan to Inter this summer.

Fred's £53 million move to United didn't exactly come with any good results and he finished the season behind Scott McTominay in the pecking order.

Things haven't started much better for the Brazilian this season and he has just three appearances to his name so far this term.

Defence has long been an issue for the Red Devils and Phil Jones has been one of a number of players at the heart of it, despite long proving he's not good enough for the top.

Even with Chris Smalling leaving on loan to Roma the England international is behind Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Axel Tuanzebe in Solskjaer's plans.

Anyone who watched Shkodran Mustafi this season won't be surprised to see the Arsenal centre back in the team and Unai Emery certainly noticed, only using the German in the Europa League and Carabao Cup this season.

It's also been a rough couple of years for goalkeeper Loris Karius, with the Besiktas loanee even making a recent mistake, and Renato Sanches, who has moved to Lille to reignite his career.

Philippe Coutinho can potentially feel a little hard done by although his year at Barcelona wasn't exactly the best.

Who would make your worst XI in the world?
