Now that the Serie A 2021/22 season has come to an end, there will be a number of different articles to be produced regarding certain aspects of what had happened throughout the campaign.

Indeed, there will undoubtedly be numerous articles like this one based on AC Milan’s success in winning the Scudetto, whilst there will be others that are made available based on the key statistics of the season.

For those who will look to use the website in the offseason, many will want to do a little bit of reading up before they look to place a wager when the Serie A season begins once again.

Nonetheless, one type of article that we know will make an appearance in their vast quantities are those that consist of the best XI from the league for 21/22.

Forbes is just one media outlet to have provided their two cents on the topic, as one of their writers has decided to compile what they believe to be the best team of the season was.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the team to have been selected features a number of obvious names, although contrastingly, it does also feature just one player from the winning AC Milan side, too. This is probably a shock and a surprise, as it is something many writers would not have perhaps done in their own respective best XI’s.

Nonetheless, let’s take a look at what Forbes has come up with:

Goalkeeper: Mike Maignan (AC Milan)

Right Back: Petar Stojanovic (Empoli)

Central Defence: Gleison Bremer (Torino)

Central Defence: Khalidou Koulibaly (Napoli)

Left Back: Destiny Udogie (Udinese)

Central Midfield: Sergej Milinković-Savić (Lazio)

Central Midfield: Lucas Torreira (Fiorentina)

Central Midfield: Manuel Locatelli (Juventus)

Right Wing: Domenico Berardi (Sassuolo)

Striker: Tammy Abraham (AS Roma)

Left Wing: Ivan Perisic (Inter)

As mentioned, there are a number of shocks in this XI by Forbes, with the fact that they seemed to overlook many of the AC Milan players when they could easily have appeared in the line-up.

Perhaps they wanted to opt for a player from a different club in each position? There is no denying that the players listed all had good seasons, but it does seem odd that not a single player is a teammate of the other at the club level.

Interestingly, there are players included that may no longer be in Serie A by the time next season comes around. We already know that Ivan Perisic is heading to Tottenham Hotspur, whilst individuals like Sergej Milinković-Savić and Khalidou Koulibaly could all be on the move, too.
