At a time when the stadiums turned into a dark ghost town with the interruption of footballing life, vitality returned again with videos and hot statements from the homes of coaches and players. The list of Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti witnessed a strange disregard for Cristiano, although he wrote in his history a new title for the Champions League, while he did not find The Egyptian Mohamed Salah is a place in the Jose Mourinho squad to continue the Portuguese coach's marginalization of the "Pharaoh" as he did while his coach was at Chelsea, while the veteran Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas preferred many legends to Messi and Ronaldo.
We ask, did European players and coaches deal with professional reasoning in their choices, or did passion and friendship play a fundamental role?

The legendary goalkeeper of the Spanish team, Iker Casillas, his former Real Madrid colleague Cristiano Ronaldo, left the green rectangle that he drew for himself when he chose his favorite squad of the best players in the history of the round witch, and also did not choose the Argentine magician Lionel Messi in the list, although he did not adhere to it the players who only fellows .

The left-back Real Madrid, Marcelo, collected the largest possible samba in his squad for the best stars in the history of football from his point of view, and excluded the "Tango" boy Lionel Messi, preferring him to Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar.

Marcelo chose - according to the Spanish newspaper "Marca" - the players: Julio Cesar to goalkeeper, Roberto Carlos, Sergio Ramos, Thiago Silva, Danny Alves for defense, Zinedine Zidane, Luca Modric, Casemiro, Masoud Ozil to the center, and Neymar Jr. and Cristiano Ronaldo in the attack.
