Photos: Barcelona Vice-President Hits Out At UEFA Over Messi And Suarez Award Snub

Barcelona Vice-President, Jordi Mestre has expressed his disappointment at UEFA for snubbing two of the club’s key players, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in the 2016 European Player of the Year award list. 

The duo who played key roles in the Blaugrana’s La Liga an Copa del Rey victories last season were placed fourth and fifth in the poll. Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Antoine Griezmann emerged the top three nominees.

Mestre in an interview on TV3 described the omission as scandalous: 
“It doesn’t seem the right decision to me at all. I don’t know what criteria UEFA applied, with all respect to the chosen winners, but I disagree [with the choices]. That our players aren’t there, such as Suarez or Messi, is scandalous. The club are very disappointed and angry.” He said
