UEFA Announce La Liga Team Of The Season, Snub Neymar

UEFA have announced their La Liga Coach and Team of the Season, but snubbed stars such as Neymar and Antoine Griezmann.

Click through the gallery above to see UEFA’s 2016/17 La Liga Team of the Season.

UEFA selected 11 players in a 4-3-3 line-up, as well as seven substitutes.

The La Liga Best XI is made up of four players from league champions Real Madrid, three from FC Barcelona, two from Atletico Madrid and one from Villarreal and Espanyol apiece.

Jan Oblak, who kept the most clean sheets in the Spanish top flight this season, was selected as goalkeeper, while Dani Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Gerard Pique and Filipe Luis were the chosen defenders.

In the center of the field, UEFA selected Toni Kroos, Villarreal's Manu Trigueros and Espanyol's Pablo Piatti – the only La Liga midfielder with double digits for both goals and assists this season.

Up front, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez did not leave any space for Neymar and Antoine Griezmann.

Both of them, though, were named among the substitutes, with the others being Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, Marcelo, Vitolo, Xabi Prieto and Pedro Leon.
