Liverpool fans were not happy with the outcome to FIFA’s The Best Men’s XI of 2019 as left-back Andy Robertson was overlooked by Real Madrid’s Marcelo in the team.

The votes for the squad are complied by current players and coaches in world football and Reds’ fans took particular exception to the 25-year-old not being included. The Scotsman had a wonderful season last time out, providing 13 assists in 48 games from left-back.

Robertson’s teammates Alisson Becker and Virgil van Dijk both made the team as the best goalkeeper and centre back for last year.

BT Sport agreed that Liverpool’s No.26 was desperately unlucky and posted a montage of some of his finest moments in the Champions League last season.

Fans were furious with his exclusion from the squad entirely, one fan said that Marcelo should be “embarrassed” to be on the stage collecting the trophy after the season he has had. Another supporter thought that Robertson fully deserved to be in the side and described the decision as “ridiculous“.

Here you will find some of the best reactions from Liverpool fans:
