French left-back Gael Clichy moved from Arsenal to Manchester City in 2011, but he clearly has a lot of respect for his former club…
We say that because Clichy picked three members of the Gunners’ Invincible side when he told Man City‘s media team his all-time Dream XI.
Check out his choices below:
GK) Bernard Lama
The former PSG star was a fantastic keeper in his day, and was part of the French 1998 World Cup winning squad.
One of the best right-backs ever to play the game, the retired star is the most capped Brazilian ever.
CB) Lilian Thuram
The Frenchman was a rock in defence, and like Cafu, is the most capped player for his international side.
CB) Paolo Maldini
The versatile defender is a real one club man, and spent the entirety of his career with AC Milan.
LB) Ashley Cole
Cole was one of the best left-backs around for a while, and enjoyed domestic and European success with Chelsea after his controversial switch from Arsenal.
