Brazil Legend Pele Snubs Cristiano Ronaldo And Lionel Messi In His FIFA 21 Team Of The Year
Brazil legend Pele has revealed that neither Barcelona captain Lionel Messi nor Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo would make his FIFA 21 Team of the Year.
EA Sports has reached that time of the year where fans can cast their votes for the best players to make Team of the Year's final XI.
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has already revealed that five Liverpool players would make his Team of the Year, surprisingly leaving out in-form Red Devils star Bruno Fernandes.
And now Pele has also tweeted out his 11 players ahead of Team of the Year's reveal on 22nd January.
The 80-year-old Santos icon revealed that Liverpool shot-stopper Alisson would take his place between the sticks.
Ahead of Alisson is a back four featuring Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back and Bayern Munich starlet Alphonso Davies at left-back.

FIFA 21 launched last October for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
EA Sports' latest instalment in the popular franchise was later released on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in December 2020.
