Ex-Real Madrid man Roberto Carlos names his Champions League all time XI

Roberto Carlos

Roberto Carlos has picked his all time Champions League XI and just one Premier League legend features.

Real Madrid legend Roberto Carlos has named his all time Champions League XI for the Daily Mail.

The Brazilian has a fine history with the competition having won it on no fewer than three occasions with Los Blancos, in 1998, 2000 and 2002 respectively.

That glorious five year spell for the Spanish giants saw Carlos be part of a team full of the likes of Luis Figo and Zinedine Zidane, and now he has named his star-studded side, with a Chelsea legend in there too.

Going with a 4-3-3 formation, he has long serving Real 'keeper Iker Casillas in goal, with a back four of Cafu, Fabio Cannavaro and Paolo Maldini, while he also has the confidence to name himself at left back.

In defensive midfield is Chelsea legend Claude Makelele, who was also a stalwart at Madrid before his move to London with Carlos saying that the Frenchman “made players feel safe” and that Madrid “really missed him when he left for Chelsea.”

Elsewhere in midfield are Zinedine Zidane and former AC Milan star Clarence Seedorf in a midfield triumvirate full of passing quality for a rather mouth-watering attacking trio.

Up front, Brazilian goal machine Ronaldo (the original one) is flanked by Portuguese legend Luis Figo and Ronaldinho in an attack that would have defences the world over running for the hills.

So a rather attacking team from Roberto Carlos, who unsurprisingly names a fair few of his former Madrid teammates in his team but leaves out current La Liga stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
