The UEFA Fans Team of the Year

?European football's governing body, UEFA reportedly changed the formation of their fans Team of the Year to accomodate ?Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo as per the ?Dailymail.



As a result, there are five UEFA Champions League winners and four UEFA Nations League finalists (including one winner).



The UEFA Chiefs were not impressed by the decision and hence came up with the 4-2-4 formation to accomodate Ronaldo by dropping a midfielder, with the unlucky man said to be ?Chelsea's, N'Golo Kante.

UEFA had revealed the fan-voted XI on Wednesday which included the usual suspects, however questions were raised due to the formation used, as they went with a rarely used 4-2-4 instead of the regular 4-3-3 which has been the norm in five of the last six years, except in 2017 where a 4-4-2 was chosen.

"The formation for this year's team of the year was chosen to reflect the votes of the fans in parallel with the players' achievements in UEFA competitions.

It has now been revealed that the reason for the change in formation was to include Ronaldo after he came in fourth in the poll of the forwards category behind rival Lionel Messi, ?Liverpool's Sadio Mane and ?Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski.
