Three Liverpool Players Included On 10-Man FIFA Player Of The Year Shortlist
By Gary Connaughton

Three Liverpool players have been included on the 10-man shortlist for FIFA's 'The Best' Men's Player nomination list.

The European Cup winners are the most well-represented side on the list, with no Manchester City players making the cut.

Recently departed Ajax duo Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong also feature, as do the usual pairing of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Harry Kane, Eden Hazard, and Kylian Mbappe make up the remainder of the nominations.

This is the fourth iteration of this award, which was founded after FIFA ended their association with the Ballon d'Or. Cristiano Ronaldo won it in 2016 and 2017, before Luka Modrić took the honour last time around.

Virgil van Dijk is the early favourite for the honour, following his PFA Player of the Year award and Liverpool's continental success.

Elsewhere, Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola have been nominated for FIFA coach of the year. Mauricio Pochettino also made the list, as has Ajax coach Erik ten Hag.
