Chelsea William name his top 5 footballers of all time

​Chelsea winger Willian has been speaking to ​ this week ahead of Chelsea's crucial Champions League 2nd leg tie against PSG on March 9th.

Willian revealed 5 players, all of which were legends in their own right for Barcelona or Real Madrid, that would make his dream 5-a-side team.
Lionel Messi

​It's no surprise that Willian selected Messi as one member of his five-a-side dream team. The Argentinian's unrivalled close control and precision shooting make him almost unplayable for Barca and the prospect of him lining up in a five-a-side arena will leave football fans around the World drooling with excitement.

​Willian's second choice is no surprise, it's his Brazilian compatriot Ronaldo. On his day, Ronaldo was the most clinical striker in world football. His ability to power away from opposition defences paired with his knack of always finding the back of the net make him an inconceivable talent.

​Unfortunately, Ronaldo suffered from weight and injury issues in the latter stages of his career, meaning that although we saw glimpses, we never got to see Ronaldo at his best after his departure from Real Madrid in 2007.
Zinedine Zidane

​Zidane's start as Real Madrid's manager hasn't gone entirely to plan, as Los Blancos find themselves 12 points behind league leaders Barcelona. However, there is no disputing Zidane's sublime technical ability as a footballer. The Frenchman managed to display unimaginable skill and ball control in his illustrious 17 year career.
Ronaldinho Gaucho

​Perhaps one of the most enjoyable players to watch in recent history, Ronaldinho made a name for himself at the 2002 World Cup and secured a move to Barcelona later that year. Known for always playing with a smile on his face, Ronaldinho was an absolute magician with the ball. He could dribble, shoot, sprint and pass his way around any opposition with consummate ease.

It's a shame that the skilful forward failed to recapture his form at Barcelona after leaving the Camp Nou in 2008.

​Andres Iniesta has played 632 times for the Catalan club over an incredible 16 year career. The silky midfielder is still going strong, conducting Barcelona's attacking style of play from a deep-lying midfield role. His ability to retain possession despite his unimposing stature puts him alongside football's most decorated midfield greats.

His trophy cabinet isn't bad either, as the 31-year-old has won seven La Liga titles, four Champions Leagues, one European Championship and one World Cup with his national team
