With the 2010s slowly coming to an end, Goal decided to compile the strongest XI of the last decade and they posted it recently on their site.
Naturally, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are leading the way up front but those two just might be the only two players that have not really been debated hotly by readers.

And naturally, with only Messi, Sergio Busquets and the former Blaugrana player Dani Alves making the list of Barcelona players in the lineup, many of their fans were clearly unhappy with it.
It seemed to bug them that the likes of Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta and Carles Puyol were nowhere to be seen and many of them expressed their emotions on Twitter, where the lineup was labelled comical and the whole team a joke.
It’s safe to say many of the fans were simply not in agreement with Goal’s choices.
You can see some of their reactions down in the tweets below:
No Puyol?? No Pique too??
Joke of the decade

It’s the most comical line up

Their La lIga team of the decade excluded Busquets but included Xavi and Iniesta. But their regular team of the decade includes Busquets and discards Xavi and Iniesta. What is this logic?
