Two Barça players in the UEFA.COM ideal team


Andrés Iniesta and Bojan Krkic are in the ideal team and the best debutants’ XI for the 2007/08 season in the First Division.

This Friday the UEFA website posted the ideal line-up and best debutants from the Spanish First Division. Andrés Iniesta and Bojan Krkic are in these two teams.

All-rounder Iniesta

Iniesta is in the ideal XI alongside Casillas (Madrid), in goal; Sergio Ramos (Madrid), Joan Capdevila (Deportivo), Fabricio Coloccini (Deportivo) and Cata Díaz (Getafe), in defence; Guti (Madrid), Iniesta and Jorge López (Racing), in midfield; and up front leading goalscorer Dani Güiza (Mallorca), Luis Fabiano (Sevilla) and Atlético de Madrid’s Argentinean striker Sergio Agüero.

Bojan is best debutant

UEFA’s best debutants’ XI features Diego López (Vila-real’s keeper), Pepe (Madrid), Martín Cáceres (Recreativo), Bruno Saltor (Almeria) and Filipe Luis from Deportivo as defenders; Getafe players De la Red and Granero in midfield; Seville’s Diego Capel and Valladolid’s Sisi playing wide; and Bojan paired upfront with Almeria striker Álvaro Negredo.

Marcelino and Unai Emery as coaches
Racing de Santander will be playing in Europe for the first time in the club’s history next season, and one of the men who has done most to make that possible is manager Marcelino Garcia. He features alongside Unai Emery, a key figure in helping Almeria stay up in the First Division and who has just become manager of Valencia.
