The new FIFA Ultimate TOTY is traditionally released in January and contains the 11 best football players of the past year. Usually you only found out at the official release if your personal favorite player had made it into the team. Now it is different, because already on 19.01.2022 there was a FIFA 22 TOTY Leak. The hashtag #totyleaks was used on Twitter.
Therefore, there are no predictions. Probably an EA employee leaked the sensitive information after the voting. Overall, there are several surprises because a few big stars didn’t make it into the TOTY for FIFA 22.
In previous years, the Team of the Year was dominated by the Premier League. This year, five players from the English league are in the line-up. Surprisingly, Mohamed Salah, who actually played an excellent season, is not included. Also missing are his team-mates from Liverpool FC Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil Van Dijk and Andy Robertson. Furthermore, you won’t find Cristiano Ronaldo in the FIFA Ultimate TOTY. All these names probably cause the most discussion because many would have liked to play them. The only chance is that one of them will be nominated as a 12th player.
All TOTY Players
Now we reveal all leaked FIFA 22 TOTY player names. Except for Bayern, there are three clubs that have at least two players in the TOTY. This shows you how much some teams dominate the European top football.
Not surprisingly, PSG’s Gigi Donnarumma, who won the European Championship last summer, is the goalkeeper. He is supported in defence by his team-mates Marquinhos and Achraf Hakimi. In addition, there are Manchester City defensive players Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo, who even have a perfect link.
At midfield, we find another teammate with Kevin De Bruyne, who reached the Champions League final with the other two City players. Unlike Jorginho and Kante, they did not win it. The two Londoners got a very good TOTY card as well. This is also deserved because, after all, they both played a big part in Chelsea’s victory.
As always, the most coveted cards are the strikers. The only Bundesliga player in the TOTY is Robert Lewandowski, who scored 43 goals last year. The Team of the Year is completed by Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe, who are Paris Saint-Germain’s fourth and fifth players in this squad.
How much they will all cost is hard to say, but for sure you will need FIFA Points if you want to try them out. For example, in the last FIFA games, Mbappe and Messi alone cost over ten million coins.
Although you now know all eleven leaked FIFA 22 TOTY players, they will be released in FUT later. This is the exact schedule:
- 21.01 at 7pm the attackers will be released
- 23.01 at 7pm the midfielders will be released
- 26.01 at 7pm the defenders and the goalkeeper will be released
- 28.01 at 7 pm all players are in the packs
