Di Maria Snubs Ronaldo As He Reveals The Best Xi He Has Ever Played With

Angel Di Maria’s Ultimate Snub 🚫

In a world where football legends pick their all-time best XIs, Angel Di Maria’s recent revelation has been nothing short of a bombshell. Imagine the audacity to leave Cristiano Ronaldo off your dream team list! In an eye-opening chat with MARCA, Di Maria, the maestro from Benfica, decided to give the cold shoulder to CR7, opting instead for a squad that reads like a who’s who of football royalty. His lineup features the likes of Messi, Neymar, Ibrahimovic, and Mbappe – a quartet that’s netted almost 2,200 goals combined. But wait, there’s more – no right-backs made the cut, leaving some to wonder about his strategic nous or perhaps hinting at a subtle dig at former teammates.

Let’s break it down:

  • Goalkeeper: Emi Martinez, chosen over Iker Casillas and David de Gea for his World Cup heroics.
  • Defence: Includes Sergio Ramos and Nicolas Otamendi, but leaves a gaping hole on the right.
  • Midfield: A blend of grit and creativity with Javier Mascherano and Rui Costa.
  • Attack: The fearsome foursome of Messi, Neymar, Ibrahimovic, and Mbappe.

Ronaldo, alongside other football greats like Rooney and Benzema, finds himself oddly benched in Di Maria’s fantasy league. At 35, and back at Benfica, Di Maria’s enjoying a resurgence, keeping the Lisbon giants hot on the heels of Portuguese league leaders. This snub might just add another layer to the rich tapestry of football rivalries and legends.
