Mesut Ozil makes Marca team of the year

Published Add your comment

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is only Premier League player to make Marca's choice for the UEFA team of the year, with a poll of readers picking out the former Real Madrid schemer for special praise.

Ozil was a firm fan favourite at the Bernabeu, but Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti decided that with Gareth Bale arriving last summer for a World record fee he could do without the German international.

Marca's readership clearly disagrees with that stance, picking Ozil alongside the Welsh wing wizard in a list which included just one Spanish player in Sergio Ramos.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi both unsurprisingly feature in attack, either side of Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski.

Bayern Munich trio Franck Ribery, David Alaba and Philipp Lahm also make the cut, while there is a place in goal for Chelsea loanee Thibaut Courtois.

Marca's UEFA team of the year starting XI is as follows: Courtois, Lahm, Ramos, Thiago Silva, David Alaba, Ribery, Ozil, Bale, Messi, Lewandowski, Ronaldo
