The Fan Park Crew previously spoke about a few players that haven’t won the UEFA Champions League, and to mark the return of the competition this week, I have selected an XI made up of the best players never to have won Europe’s elite cup competition - though some still have a chance to do so.
We have decided to use a 4-4-2 Diamond formation:
Goalkeeper: Gianluigi Buffon – Juventus
Right-back: Lilian Thuram –Juventus
Centre-back: Fabio Cannavaro – Real Madrid
Centre-back: Laurent Blanc – Inter Milan
Left-back: Gianluca Zambrotta – Juventus
Defensive midfield: Lothar Matthaus – Bayern Munich
Central midfield: Patrick Vieira – Arsenal
Central midfield: Michael Ballack – Chelsea
Attacking midfield: Pavel Nedved – Juventus
Striker: Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Inter Milan
Striker: Ronaldo – Real Madrid
It’s amazing to see how many quality players have never lifted the UEFA Champions League!
Can you think of any other players?
