For the sake of Ronaldo, UEFA Changed Team of the Year 2019 Formation

 

The European Football Agency (UEFA) changed the traditional 4-3-3 formation to 4-2-4 for the 2019 Team of the Year. The change was to accommodate Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo who must be included in the world’s best squad.

The idea of ​​leaving Ronaldo in the 2019 UEFA Team of the Year squad seems too risky and difficult to imagine by the European soccer’s governing body. So, they need to change the formation to adjust it.

Lionel Messi, Sadio Mane, and Robert Lewandowski are the three forwards with the most votes, while the Portuguese star finished fourth.

Traditionally UEFA used the 4-3-3 scheme in the best teams, but for the 2019 edition, it was changed to 4-2-4. As the Daily Mail revealed by Marca, the change was to put the Juventus striker in the line-up. UEFA even had time to postpone the publication of the best Starting XI within a week.

Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante is a player who is overlooked, even though he is the third-most received midfielder.

‘Ronaldo’s popularity is so great at UEFA that alarms are heard when they see the results,” a source told the Daily Mail. ‘For that reason, they changed the starting XI.’

A UEFA spokesman explained that the change information was to accommodate the former Real Madrid striker, based on his achievements which had won the League of Nations with his country and the Scudetto Serie A.

‘The formation was chosen to reflect the voices of the fans and the achievements of the players in the UEFA competition,’ they said.
