Nemanja Matic picks his dream five-a-side team; selects just one Chelsea player

Published 2 Comments

Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic played a vital role in Chelsea's run to the Premier League title, and will be involved heavily if the Blues are to repeat their success this season.

The Stamford Bridge club started their campaign in less than impressive fashion against Swansea City, stuttering to a 2-2 draw, but have an opportunity to put things right against Manchester City on Sunday.

Taking time out from his busy schedule, Matic spoke to YouTuber Spencer Owen and answered a host of questions, before naming his dream five-a-side line-up.

The former Benfica man said he would prefer to play with Cristiano Ronaldo over Lionel Messi, would prefer to get in a boxing ring with John Terry over Diego Costa, revealed Frank Lampard is the best player he has ever played with and that he would rather win the Champions League than the Premier League.

The Serbian midfielder was tasked with picking his all-time best five-a-side team, a difficult challenge, he settled with a five of Thibaut Courtois, Zinedine Zidane, Franz Beckenbauer, Diego Maradona and himself.

Matic has become a vital part of Chelsea's team since his £21million return from Benfica in 2014, playing 68 games and scoring three goals.

But if Chelsea are to emulate their success of last season they will need to improve on their performance from the opening weekend.

Things seem to have gone a bit stale for Chelsea in the build-up to this season. They should be riding a wave of excitement following their exploits, but a lack of new additions and poor pre-season seem to have soured the atmosphere at Stamford Bridge.

There is no doubt Mourinho will make the necessary steps to change the atmosphere at the Bridge. Baba Rahman's addition could be the start of a busy 19 days for the club, but will it be enough to bring the title back to London?

Chelsea fans, are you confident of success this season? Have your say below!
