Lionel Messi left out of Top 3 shortlist for UEFA Player of the Year [Tweets]

There has been a furore from Barcelona fans on Twitter as Lionel Messi has been left out of the final shortlist for UEFA Player of the Year.

Lionel Messi’s name has become synonymous with individual accolades. So, naturally, when the final shortlist for UEFA Player of the Year consisting of three players was announced, it was a shock to see the Barcelona star being left out.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Mohamed Salah were the ones to make the cut. While the first two names were deserving to an extent, fans were distraught at seeing Salah being on the list when Messi did not appear in the Top 3.

There were some obvious tweets pointing at Salah and Messi’s individual performance over the given period.

Some lamented the fact that Messi has now become an underrated player while others were shocked at the decision.

Some though, chose to contradict and troll, not Lionel Messi but the fans.

An entirely new idea was presented as well.
