Liverpool stars dominate The Best FIFA Men’s Player shortlist

The Best nominations

The nominations for 2020’s The Best FIFA Men’s Player have been revealed on Wednesday morning.

This year’s award ceremony is set to take place on the 17th of December.

The public can cast their votes at FIFA.com until December 9th at 23:59 CET.

The Best award was introduced back in 2016, first won by then-Real Madrid man Cristiano Ronaldo.

It is currently held by Barcelona and Argentina star Lionel Messi.

Liverpool dominate nominees

Messi, unsurprisingly, has once again made it onto the shortlist of 11 players for this year’s The Best FIFA Men’s Player.

Joining Messi on the list are four Liverpool players – in the form of Thiago, Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

Elsewhere, Cristiano Ronaldo has once again been nominated, whilst Kevin De Bruyne, Robert Lewandowski, Neymar, Sergio Ramos and Kylian Mbappe have also made the cut.

Interestingly, despite Bayern Munich putting several teams to the sword en route to their latest Champions League triumph, and dominating the Bundesliga, they have fewer players shortlisted than Liverpool.

The Reds’ dominance continues elsewhere, with Alisson Becker shortlisted for this year’s The Best FIFA Men’s Goalkeeper award, which he bagged last time out.

Jurgen Klopp has also been nominated for The Best FIFA Men’s Coach award, with perhaps the biggest surprise inclusion on that list coming in the form of Leeds’ Marcelo Bielsa.
