Florenzi, Nainggolan and Pjanic named in UEFA's Serie A team of the year

Roma trio Alessandro Florenzi, Radja Nainggolan and Miralem Pjanic have been selected in the Serie A 2015-16 team of the year by the Italian version of uefa.com.

In the 3-4-3 chosen by uefa.com/it, alongside the three Giallorossi men there are also five Juventus players, two from Napoli and one from Inter.

Roma dominate the four-man midfield chosen by the UEFA website with Florenzi, Nainggolan and Pjanic bossing the middle of the park alongside Bianconeri man Paul Pogba.

The defence, meanwhile, has a Juventus feel to it, with Gianluigi Buffon in goal behind team-mates Leonardo Bonucci and Andrea Barzagli, along with Nerazzurri stopper Miranda. The attack features two Napoli players, the league's top scorer Gonzalo Higuain and Lorenzo Insigne, who are joined by Juve's Argentine Paulo Dybala.

Here's how the editorial team at uefa.com/it described the three Giallorossi in their team of the year.

Alessandro Florenzi

“Here, there and everywhere for Roma. Full-back, winger and wide forward in a front three. Florenzi can do everything and he does it well. The Roman midfielder enjoyed a prominent campaign and his goal in the UEFA Champions League group stage against Barcelona will live long in the memory."

Radja Nainggolan

"The Belgian midfielder, 28, certainly isn't found wanting when it comes to character and bite - he's the leader for the Giallorossi in the middle. Whether sitting in front of the back four or in the hole behind the forwards, Nainggolan brings energy and unpredictability to his side's play. Capable of late runs and possessing a fine long shot, he has often produced big moments for the Giallorossi this season, scoring six times."

Miralem Pjanic

“Three midfielders out of four from Roma. Luciano Spalletti's side may have only finished third in the league but their end of season run - after the Tuscan returned to the helm - was incredible. The Bosnian midfielder showed class, goals (10) and assists (nine) throughout the campaign."
