FIFPro name 2013 XI

There are no Serie A or Premier League players in the FIFPro 2013 XI, as Bayern Munich and Barcelona dominate.

European Champions Bayern have three representatives in the line-up, goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, defender Philipp Lahm and Ballon d’Or candidate Franck Ribery.

Barcelona have more players in the XI than any other club, while Paris Saint-Germain have ex-Milan stars Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva.

There are no Serie A or Premier League players included, so La Liga, the Bundesliga and Ligue 1 are the only competitions represented.

The XI was announced ahead of the Ballon d’Or, where Cristiano Ronaldo, Leo Messi and Ribery are short-listed.
