UEFA announce 2021/22 Champions League Team of the Season

 

UEFA Champions League Team of the Season

GK: Thibaut Courtois (Real Madrid) – A 10/10 performance in the final silenced any doubters of Courtois‘ ability. A big-game player for the biggest of stages.

Defender:

RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) – Alexander-Arnold’s performance in the final left a little to be desired, defensively anyway, but he was again a sensation in the future. Has possibly the best delivery into the box in world football.

CB: Antonio Rudiger (Chelsea) – It’s been a remarkable 16 months for Rudiger, who went from Chelsea outcast to one of Europe’s most coveted defenders. Was outstanding at times during the Blues’ run to the quarter-final.

CB: Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool) – Unable to get Liverpool over the line in the final, but Van Dijk was rock solid during the eight Champions League games he featured in.

LB: Andrew Robertson (Liverpool) – Like Alexander-Arnold, Robertson was a tremendous attacking threat for Liverpool as they racked up the goals en route to the final.

Midfielder:

CM: Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) – The best player in the Premier League remains one of Europe’s top stars too. Unable to guide Manchester City to the final, De Bruyne was brilliant throughout their campaign.

CM: Fabinho (Liverpool) – The anchor of Liverpool’s midfield, Fabinho was the rock-solid foundation that fired Jurgen Klopp’s side to the final.

CM: Luka Modric (Real Madrid) – 36 years young but still operating at the peak of his powers. Modric was sublime in Real’s midfield. He sees the game so well and is still a cut above technically.

Forward:

RW: Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain) – Perhaps a tad surprising to see Mbappe make the team given PSG went out in the last 16, but he did score six times in eight games – including a thrilling last-minute winner against Real Madrid.

CF: Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) – A scorer of 15 Champions League goals during 2021/22, it’s no surprise that Benzema is not only in the team of the season, but he’s also been named the best player. Outrageous contributions against PSG, Chelsea and Manchester City.

LW: Vinicius Junior (Real Madrid) – The Brazilian arrived on the world’s stage after a beautiful season in Madrid. Capped off by scoring the winning goal in the final against Liverpool.
