A coaching panel that included legendary Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson selected the 18-man squad of the season, but there was no space for Neymar, Alves or Luis Suarez.

In fact, Lionel Messi is the only FC Barcelona player who was selected for the side, which includes eight of Real Madrid's starting XI from the final on Saturday.

Cristiano Ronaldo is joined by Sergio Ramos, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Marcelo, Dani Carvajal, Isco and Casemiro.

Real's final opponents Juventus have just three representatives in Gianluigi Buffon, who lost his third final, as well as Leonardo Bonucci and Miralem Pjanic.

Jan Oblak, Diego Godin and Antoine Griezmann represent Atletico Madrid, while Monaco's Tiemoue Bakayoko and teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe, and Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski were also named in the squad.
