This Saturday, the 2020/2021 season of the UEFA Champions League found its end point. It was at the Porto stadium, in Portugal, that Chelsea completely neutralized Manchester City and defeated it by the slightest difference thanks to a lone goal from Kai Havertz in the first half. Thus, those of London added their second title in the contest.

N'Golo Kanté, the best player in the final and semifinals and who maintained a very high level throughout the tournament, is the great absentee in the Champions League ideal team.

And a day later, UEFA presented in society the ideal team of the season in which, as it was presumed, there were the majority of players from Chelsea and Manchester City. However, once again, it was involved in controversy due to some discussed presences, and, fundamentally, to some striking absences.

For example, in the mentioned ideal team of the season in the Champions League does not appear N'Golo Kanté, French midfielder from Chelsea, the champion, who maintained regularity throughout the championship and was the undisputed figure of the final, where he exhibited a really remarkable performance and caught the attention of locals and strangers.

On the other hand, Mason Mount is also not present, another of the great appearances of the Blues. The talented offensive midfielder was key to Thomas Tuchel's team's campaign and also shone in the deciding game. However, the organizers decided to go for other players like Phil Foden of Manchester City.

Edouard Mendy (Chelsea); Kyle Walker (Manchester City), Antonio Rüdiger (Chelsea), Rúben Dias (Manchester City), César Azpilicueta (Chelsea); Ilkay Gündogan (Manchester City), Jorginho (Chelsea), Phil Foden (Manchester City); Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund) and Kylian Mbappé (Paris Saint-Germain).
