Fifa FIFPro Men’s World XI revealed as Liverpool and Bayern dominate

L

iverpool and Bayern Munich were unsurprisingly strongly represented as the Fifa FIFPro Men’s World XI for 2020 was named on Thursday night.

Liverpool finally ended their 30-year wait for domestic league success with a dominant 2019-20 campaign under Jurgen Klopp, while Bayern completed a historic treble – their first since 2013 – as they clinched a sixth Champions League crown with victory over Paris Saint-Germain in Lisbon to go along with an eighth successive Bundesliga triumph and record 20th German Cup.

Such memorable success meant both clubs were sufficiently honoured at the latest edition of the Best Fifa Football Awards, with Bayern’s perennially prolific star striker Robert Lewandowski winning best men’s player after hitting 55 goals in just 47 appearances last term – and another 16 in 14 so far this season – and team-mate Manuel Neuer scooping the best men’s goalkeeper prize as Klopp picked up men’s coach of the year.

Alphonso Davies, Joshua Kimmich and Lewandowski were the current Bayern players to also make the cut, with the latter joined in a devastating front three by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos and reigning PFA Player of the Year Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City completed the star-studded lineup.

Fifa FIFPro’s Men’s World XI 2020: Alisson Becker (Liverpool); Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich); Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich), Thiago Alcantara (Liverpool), Kevin De Bryune (Manchester City); Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich), Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus)
