Memorable past: Neymar recalls tow of his five-aside mates from Arsenal and Chelsea.

Neymar has named former Chelsea stars Frank Lampard and Eden Hazard and Arsenal great Thierry Henry in his dream five-a-side teams.


The Brazilian wasn’t allowed to include any of his fellow countrymen in his two teams, with one being made up of current stars, while the other is made up of retired legends from the game.

Neymar also opted against including any defenders or goalkeepers in either side – instead opting for forward thinking players.

Hazard features in the current team of stars alongside Barcelona pair Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi, PSG’s Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba of Manchester United.

Lampard and Henry are named in the legends line-up with David Beckham, Steven Gerrard and Xavi.

Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the biggest name to miss out, along with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling.

Meanwhile, Neymar has also sent a Champions League warning to Chelsea and Tottenham.

The two both booked their place in the knockout rounds before Christmas, but the PSG star is hoping to inspire his side to European glory this season.

“My biggest expectation for 2020 is to win everything I can with PSG and the Brazilian team,” the former Barcelona man told ESPN.

“I’ll seek new challenges, I want to be in the Champions League final, I want to win the Copa America once again.
