Jody Morris #One2Eleven (3-4-3 Formation)

Jody Morris was a guest on Sky Sports programme The Fantasy Football Club in February 2015 where he picked the eleven best players he had ever played with in their #One2Eleven section of the show.

GK – Carlo Cudicini – when I was at Chelsea I thought he was the best goalkeeper in the league. For his size he commanded the box really well and was the best shot stopper I had seen.

RB – Marcel Desailly – although he was getting on in years when he came to Chelsea he always raised his game for the big matches.

CB – Rio Ferdinand – gifted footballer going forward. Unbelievable skill and very cultured coming out from the back.

CB – John Terry – one of the greatest centre-halves to play in the Premier League. Very good on the ball which often gets overlooked by people when they are talking about him.

Holding Midfielder – Glenn Hoddle – only played a couple of reserve games with him but some of the things I saw him do were unbelievable. A genius.

CM – Ruud Gullit – towards the end of his career when I played with him. He never ever gave the ball away in training and had a fantastic range of passing.

CM – Frank Lampard – for me the greatest goal scoring midfielder of all time, in any league. He scored all those goals, and got all those assists without shirking his defensive responsibilities.

CM – Gianfranco Zola – such a gifted player who was always practising his free kick technique in training.

ST – Michael Owen – played with him at England youth levels. An amazing finisher whose pace murdered defenders for six or seven years. Really confident in his ability.

ST – Mark Hughes – best player at holding up the ball ever. Top player who was really quiet off the pitch.

ST – Gianluca Vialli – the cleverest striker with the best movement I’ve ever seen.
