UEFA's film crew had exclusive access to four players during the knockout phase of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League, with Paris forward Mbappé and Manchester City midfielder De Bruyne discussing their respective playing styles and their reading of the game as part of the opening 24-minute episode. More star performers open up about their footballing lives in part two.

The Players comes in the wake of UEFA's celebrated study of referees, Man in the Middle, which followed some of Europe's top officials during the first season of the VAR system. The series gave detailed insight into the drama and psychology of refereeing at the highest levels in European football, with all four episodes still available to view on UEFA.tv.

Access to UEFA.tv is free-to-view with registration. The platform is available on Android and iOS smartphone and tablet apps, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Hisense VIDAA Smart TVs. Existing UEFA digital users can sign in to UEFA.tv using their standard account credentials.
