Liverpool and Saoin legend Fernando Torres has listed a star studded squad in his ultimate eleven which was mainly for his former teammates.
Torres brought his glorious career as a footballer to an end following his goal scoring exploits at Athletico Madrid, Liverpool, Chelsea and not forgetting the La Rojas.
Only eleven individuals can make a team and so the Spaniard picked some notable names that which he pllayed with during career.
It’s shocking to see that Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos who were national team members alongside Fernando missed out.
Casillas and Torres both played an integral role in Spain’s golden era, helping them win two European Championships and a World Cup.
Another missing name was Frank Lampard who played a pivotal role in Chelsea’s UCL triumph
In goal is Jan Oblak with a three-man defence of John Terry, Carles Puyol and Diego Godin.
In the middle of the park Xabi Alonso, Javier Mascherano, Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Steven Gerrard were picked.
And in attack he paired himself with David Villa.
The 2010 world cup winner in a chat with Liverpool explained Mascherano’s inclusion: “A holding midfielder, a player who all the teams need. Hard-working, good with the ball, a player I loved playing alongside in Liverpool.
“And next to him will be Xabi Alonso, the perfect partner for him- you could see that in our time all together here
“Mascherano and Alonso are the perfect combination and we need Alonso’s quality with the ball to play.”
He was also full of praises for Rangers Glasgow coach Steven G
“In the midfield, in the most advanced position is Steven Gerrard. This is my icon player.
“I needed Steven in the team; any system, any team. A key player for me and obviously the most important player in that role, as a No.10, a little bit in front of Mascherano and Alonso.
“The best player that I’ve played with. I’ve said many times that he is the player who completed my game.
“There is a ‘before and after’ since I started playing with him. So an icon player, captain of that team and I would be so happy to be able to play with him again.
“Godin, Puyol and Terry are very good with the ball and they are strong defenders so we can defend with three all the time.”
