Calendar of FC Barcelona

The eleven of legends of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) conformed by the Brazilian attacker Neymar Jr generated controversy. In 'his ideal team' did not be place for his compatriots, since it gave him place until to six players of his same nationality. Besides, also it awarded him contingent in the goal to the guardameta Italian Gianluigi Buffon, the one who only lasted in the French capital a year.

By the Brazilians: in the sides selected to Dani Alves, to the that defined like "one of the best sides of the history" and in the left band to Maxwell. Alex and David Luiz complete the defensive line, whereas in the centre of the field planted to Thiago Motta "by his quality of game". To Nenê -the one who was with the Parisians from 2010 until 2013- and to Ronaldinho situated them in the centre of the attack of his eleven, the one who also has the English David Beckham, George Weah and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The most striking case is the one of Buffon, the alone Italian was in Paris during the season 2018-19, when it arrived pertinent of his team of all the life: the Juventus of Turín. In France, 'Gigi', only participated in 25 meetings and received the same numbers of goals, being hardly title. Of the previous figure, 17 were the games that saw him in Tie it 1, a bit less than the half of the course.

Another alike case is the one of Beckham, the one who dressed the T-shirt of the 'rojiazules' alone in the season 2012-13, in which it participated in 14 parties between all the competitions, did not mark goals and only contributed two assistances. His pasantía meant the withdrawal of the professional football for the English, the one who went through the Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Los Angeles Galaxy and in his starts in Preston North End FC.

Another name, that could think that it deserves form the eleven, is Ronaldinho. However, neither it did a lot not to win the criticisms. 'The Magician' only was by space of two seasons (2001-02 and 2002-03), time that served more so that it showed his talent. His step did not mean titles for the PSG. Only it arrived to the final of the Glass of France, that did not win after falling in front of the Auxerre. The best of his career saw in the FC Barcelona, where arrived a season afterwards.

The positive note of the eleven

Of the positive notes in the eleven of Neymar, maybe can aim the long pasantía of Motta, the one who remained tied to the conjoint Frenchman from the season 2011-12 until the 2017-18. And more still, the contribution of the Swedish Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the one who in four courses was able to surpass in three the 20 alone goals in league and the 30 between all the competitions. In his last year, annotated 50 targets in 51 commitments and culminated in 156 so many before leaving to the Manchester United.
