Messi snubbed as UEFA picks Ronaldo, Robben and Neuer for Best Player in Europe award
The trio were picked from an initial 10-man shortlist that had players like Angel Di Maria, Diego Costa, Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi, Philipp Lahm, James Rodriguez and Thomas Muller.
Messi, who won the first ever prize in 2011, is the most high-profile player that fails to make the cut, after he could only finish 5th in the voting.
This year’s winner will be announced on August 28, when the draws for the Champions League group stages are conducted in Monaco.
