Cristiano Ronaldo made the supporter’s team of the year, when UEFA reportedly changed the formation to accommodate the Juventus star.
Daily Mail could reveal that Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kanté was dropped from the official line-up, as UEFA decided to change the formation to keep Ronaldo in the 2019 side.
The traditional 4-3-3 had been changed to a 4-2-4 formation after Lionel Messi, Sadio Mané and Robert Lewandowski all collected a higher number of votes than the UEFA Nations League winner.
