Chelsea legend Chopper slams FIFA team snub

Chelsea legend Ron 'Chopper' Harris was unimpressed by their snub for FIFA's Team of the Year.

None of last season's Champions League winners were selected.

Harris said: "It's strange that the team which won the Champions League cannot get one player in this team.

"Put it this way - if I had the choice between Marcelo and Ashley Cole, I wouldn't pick Marcelo. Nor would a lot of managers in Europe, maybe including Jose Mourinho!"

Harris added: "Lots of people say the Spanish League is the best in the world. But if you take out Barcelona and Real Madrid, what's left?"
