Tickets for FC Barcelona matches

The FIFA has made public the list of the 10 nominated for the prize TheBest , that the past season won the madridista Luka Modric but that in the next will not opt. Cristiano Ronaldo, Frenkie of Jong, Matthijs of Ligt, Eden Hazard, Harry Kane, Sadio Mané, Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi, Mohamed Salah and Virgil go Dijk are the candidates.

The representation of the FC Barcelona recae in Leo Messi -that won LaLiga and the Boot of Gold, being semifinalist of Champions League and champion of the Glass of the King with the Barcelona- and in Frenkie of Jong, that did a temporadó with the Ajax attaining the 'doublet' in Holland and remaining semifinalist of the League of Champions.

But there is a lot of other footballers that do not opt to the prize but that gave a level superlative in the group culé. One of the most evident cases is the one of Gerard Hammered, that did a spectacular season -maybe one of the best of his career- and was considered one of the best defences of the world.

Another big absent is Jordi Alba, in a similar case to the of Gerard Hammered. The side of L'Hospitalet is one of the big stars of the Barça and one of the key pieces of the diagrams of Ernesto Valverde. His diabolical attacks by the left band gave a lot of goals to the FC Barcelona, especially to Leo Messi that knows to take advantage of well the game of the Catalan.

Inside the possibilities also could put to Luis Suárez, that threw of the Barça in a lot of occasions and that it was the maximum second goleador of the team. This yes, to the Uruguayan maybe finish him happening invoices the fact of have not been decisive in Champions League, especially because it does time that does not mark out of house.

The rest of forgotten

No only in the FC Barcelona there are players that maybe deserved to be in the list. In concrete, odd the absence of key players of the Liverpool like the goalkeeper Alisson or Roberto Firmino, as well as players of the Manchester City as Sterling or Bernardo Silva.
