Football Italian, The Sport Italia and The Football Times are pleased to present the 2016 Serie A team of the year.
The following list comprises of the best and brightest players in the division in the first half of the season, from the best to the worst, and a few players who have come and gone from the team.
The team of 2015-16 was the team of Mario Balotelli, Giorgio Chiellini and Mario Balizio, but that did not happen last season.
The club of 2017-18 will be the one to be remembered as one of the top sides in the world.
Fellow Italian player, Mario Balosini, who is the team’s captain and a key part of the defence, was recently sold for €17 million to Inter Milan, while the former Milan midfielder Giorgios Samaras was also sold to the Italian champions.
A new season in which they will be competing against the top teams in the league and the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea could only be a good thing for the future of the club.
It will also give the fans an opportunity to cheer for the best of them.
