Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has named his ultimate seven-a-side-team made up of the best opponents he faced during his illustrious playing career.

The 42-year-old came up against some of the best to ever play the game during his career and, speaking at a Virtual Q&A hosted by Hyundai to launch the second season of their grassroots football programme Hyundai FC, Lampard named a very attacking side.

"It's [Manuel] Neuer, Rio [Ferdinand], Steven Gerrard, [Zinedine] Zidane, Ronaldinho, [Lionel] Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo," he said.

Neuer was the man in between the sticks for Bayern Munich when Lampard won the Champions League with Chelsea in 2012 and his infamous 'ghost goal' against Germany at the 2010 World Cup.

He also had many battles at club level with international team-mates Ferdinand and Gerrard and some memorable clashes with Zidane and Ronaldinho in Europe.

The Blues boss was then asked to pick between Messi and Ronaldo and opted for the Barcelona superstar.

"This is the horrible question! But I'm sure if I sit on the fence then you're going to ask me for my actual answer," he said.

"I'm gonna go Messi on this on pure, natural talent but what Ronaldo has done has been absolutely incredible."

Lampard was also asked who the toughest opponents that he faced during his career were, and he opted for two Barcelona legends who he had left out of his ultimate seven-a-side team.

He said: "The two that I name when I say against is Xavi and [Andres] Iniesta at Barcelona. They were great players, they were kind of not the biggest and quite slight.

"It just shows it doesn't matter, because sometimes people think you have to be huge to be a footballer player. You don't."
