Cristiano Ronaldo missing in 2022 team of the year [Full list]
Cristiano Ronaldo is the biggest casualty, as the French daily newspaper L’Equipe named their team of the year.
The Portugal captain is the biggest absentee from the XI following his difficult calendar year with Manchester United and Portugal.
To many people, it’s not surprising to see him omitted from the starting lineup following his irregularity in the Red Devils' set-up under Erik ten Hag.
Ronaldo scored just three goals for the Red Devils in 16 matches before his contract was terminated last month.
Moreover, Ronaldo endured a torrid campaign at the just concluded Qatar 2022 World Cup and could not stop Portugal from being knocked out in the quarterfinals by Morocco.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner left the pitch in tears and is now waiting to sort out his next move in the January transfer window.
In the team are:
