Lionel Messi is arguably one of the best, if not the best, player of all time. He has been performing at the top level since the last decade and has won multiple honours, both for his club and country.
The Barcelona captain has been single-handedly carrying his club in the last few years. Most importantly, he makes people fall in love with football again.
EA Sports comes up with their Team Of The Year event on FIFA on a yearly basis. This year as well, TOTY has started on FIFA 21 from 22nd January. Millions from around the globe have voted for the TOTY final XI and the final TOTY XI have been revealed yesterday, though the rating of only the three attackers have been revealed till now.
But the most shocking part is that Lionel Messi hasn’t made it to the final XI. The people haven’t voted for him maybe because of Barcelona’s recent slump and Messi also wanted to leave Barcelona for a new challenge, which affected him personally.
