Eden Hazard Picks Dream 5-a-Side Team Featuring Ronaldinho And... Robinho

Tom Webb@@tomwebby92UK Staff WriterDecember 4, 2015

Eden Hazard was probably hoping to avoid controversy when he picked a dream five-a-side team made up solely players he has not played with. But he may get some stick for another reason.

For alongside legends of the game including Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldinho, the Chelsea forward selected another Brazilian—Manchester City flop Robinho.

Thierry Henry and Juan Roman Riquelme complete the formidable line-up, which Hazard selected in an interview with UEFA, but it's Robinho's selection that might cause a few laughs.

Now turning out for Guangzhou Evergrande in the Chinese Super League, Robinho scored just 16 goals in 53 appearances after moving to the Etihad Stadium from Real Madrid in 2008 for £32.5 million—a British record at the time.

Hazard's theoretical dream team would have to rely on scoring lots of goals between them, with no defenders or goalkeeper selected in the five.
