Just which Premier League star was able to scrape into the 11 best players of their positions?
French newspaper L’Equipe has revealed it’s World XI for 2014 but their list features just one Premier League star with La Liga and Bundesliga stars dominating.
The list, compiled by a vote from France based football journalists of their ideal squad of players from around the world, heavily features Bayern Munich and Real Madrid stars.
Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona playrers also feature but which Premier League star was able to break into the best XI?
GK) Manuel Neuer – Bayern Munich
The shot stopper has turned into more sweeper than keeper with the German star regularly seen outside his box as Bayern Munich continue to dominate match after match. Was instrumental to Germany’s world cup triumph in the summer.
RB) Philipp Lahm – Bayern Munich
Whilst Lahm features as a right back on the list, the majority of his club work came from the centre of midfield as Pep Guardiola devised a new position for the veteran and in his infinite footballing wisdom it was a complete success.
