Speaking during the virtual Q&A hosted by Hyundai, the Chelsea manager picked a seven-a-side team full of attacking talent and creativity.
“It’s [Manuel] Neuer, Rio [Ferdinand], Steven Gerrard, [Zinedine] Zidane, Ronaldinho, [Lionel] Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo,” Lampard said.
The former England playmaker was also asked to pick a side in the long-running debate between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, and he had to go for the Barcelona man. But did recognize Ronaldo’s greatness.
“I’m gonna go Messi on this on pure, natural talent but what Ronaldo has done has been absolutely incredible,” he added.
