Other stars on the illustrious list include Ronaldinho, David Beckham, Neymar and Zinedine Zidane.

The ceremony will take place on 27 December in Dubai, with awards being handed out in seven categories, namely the annual accolades for the Player of the Year, Coach of the Year and Club of the Year, plus four special prizes for the Player of the Century, Coach of the Century, Agent of the Century and Club of the Century.
