Lionel Messi Barcelona 2019-20

The 2019 UEFA Team of the Year was announced Wednesday, and there was Ronaldo yet again, alongside fellow staple Lionel Messi and, naturally, five players from Liverpool.

Matthijs de Ligt (Ajax/Juventus): A star in defence as Ajax won a domestic double and reached the Champions League semi-finals, scoring a last-eight victor against Juventus - who he want on to join last summer - to cement his place in the 2018/19 Squad of the Season.

Liverpool's English midfielder Jordan Henderson (C) lifts the trophy after winning the 2019 FIFA Club World Cup Final football match between England's Liverpool and Brazil's Flamengo at the Khalifa International Stadium in the Qatari capital Doha on December 21, 2019.

Real Madrid pay the price for their poor season following their Round of 16 elimination in the 2018-19 Champions League campaign with zero players from the Santiago Bernabeu outfit selected in the "team of the year". The back four was completed by de Ligt, whose eye-catching performances for Ajax in the Champions League earned him a move to Juventus in the summer.

Lionel Messi (Barcelona): The 2018/19 Champions League Forward of the Season, 12-goal top scorer and first player to score in 15 successive seasons in the competition, Messi racked up a half-century of goals for the ninth time in the last ten years.

Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo was included for a record 14th time after helping Portugal to win the inaugural edition of the UEFA Nations League. The Egyptian winger shared the Premier League Golden Boot alongside teammate Mane and also scored the opening goal in the Champions League final victory against Spurs. Aged 34 but still talismanic for both club and country. Named 2019 African Player of the Year.
