Chelsea star Fabregas names dream five-a-side team

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has named his dream five-a-side team in a talk with Sky Sports.

The Spaniard has enjoyed an illustrious career and has played with Arsenal, Barcelona and the Blues.

He was also apart of the dominant Spain side that won Euro 2008 and 2012, and the 2010 World Cup.

When choosing his goalkeeper for his ideal five player team, Fabregas chose Spain legend Iker Casillas. The former Real Madrid stalwart was a key figure in those successful Spain teams, and Fabregas also credits him with some fine displays against Barcelona while he was at the club.

His only defender is Barcelona centre-back Gerard Pique, who Fabregas describes as a 'fantastic player'.

Next is his Chelsea teammate Eden Hazard. Fabregas states that the Belgian has all the tools necessary to win the Ballon D'Or.

A man who's won five of those, Lionel Messi, is next. The pair are close friends from their time at Barcelona, and Fabregas describes him "the best player of all time."

Rounding off the five is Thierry Henry, who Fabregas played with in his formative years at Arsenal. He credits the Frenchman with teaching him plenty about football.
