Names like Cristiano Ronaldo (United) and Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) appear in the selection
This Friday (6), Electronic Arts announced that the Premier League’s Team of the Season (TOTS) has officially arrived in FIFA 22 . With three Liverpool players in the top five and Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to the top, the selection drew attention for the absence of Chelsea names.
Despite having a champion 2021/22 season, with the UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup titles, the Blues had no players represented in the English league TOTS. Without further clarification on the decision, EA excluded athletes from the London team already on the preliminary list of open voting, which contained names of forty high-level talents.
According to the Mirror newspaper , the measure may be the result of Roman Abramovich’s disqualification as owner of Chelsea, after sanctioning his assets caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Recently, Electronic Arts removed all references to Russian entities from FIFA 22 , but did not elaborate on a possible extension of the case to other regions.
