However, while Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson and Sadio Mane were selected for the 2019 Best XI, Salah was snubbed.

The Egyptian winger was omitted to make space for Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski in the attacking positions.

Matthijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong and Kevin De Bruyne are the other stars who complete the 2019 UEFA Team of the Year.
