Ivanovic names Chelsea mates alongside Neymar, Messi, Ronaldo

Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has named teammates Eden Hazard and Willian, along with Neymar, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, as the most skilful players he has played with or against.

When asked by Chelsea's official website who is the most skilful player outside of Chelsea he has played with or against, the Serbian could not resist throwing the names of two of his Stamford Bridge colleagues in for good measure.

Ivanovic said: "Neymar, Messi, Ronaldo, they are full of skills but I still want to name the guys who I play with – Willian, Eden Hazard – they are really impressive with the ball.

"In football today, everything is about the speed and a lot of people can do various skills but the way those players I named do them quickly is very difficult."
