Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and two Reds players were among the winners at The Best FIFA Football Awards in Milan on Monday.
Klopp was named Best FIFA Men’s Coach while Alisson and Virgil van Dijk were included in the FIFA FIFPro Men’s World11.
However, Liverpool fan @Kloppholic on Twitter was still furious over the omissions of Reds duo Andrew Robertson and Sadio Mane from that XI.
That World XI is shocking. Madrid players (apart from Hazard) there solely on reputation. Ronaldo over Mané? Marcelo over Robertson? Embarrassing.

Four current Real Madrid players were included, with Marcelo, Sergio Ramos, Luka Modric and Eden Hazard all making the team, even though the club finished third in La Liga last season and exited the Champions League in the last 16 to Ajax.
Liverpool went on to succeed Real Madrid as Champions League winners and also earned a club record 97 points in the Premier League in 2018/19.
While Marcelo made just 34 appearances in all competitions last season, fellow left-back Robertson played in 48 games and provided no fewer than 13 assists for the Reds.
These Liverpool fans on Twitter were not impressed at Robertson being overlooked for the FIFA FIFPro Men’s World11 in favour of Marcelo:
Marcelo MUST be a joke. It MUST be. It’s one thing that any Madrid player is on there, but Marcelo is the biggest joke of all.

Ramos over Arnold total cheat
Modric over Bernardo Silva total cheat

Why were Marcelo and Modric per of the team?
Marcelo was not even a first team regular in the initial part of the season. And When he became a regular he was no way as good as Robertson.

Marcelo wasn’t even a starter!! He was benched by Reguilon
