Jose Mourinho has named his dream XI, including players from Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United. None, however, have made it who played under him during his spell at Old Trafford.

All the players in his all-time best XI played for Mourinho during his illustrious career. In goal, the Portuguese manager has named Petr Cech, who served under him during his time at Stamford Bridge.

Cech’s former team-mates William Gallas, Ricardo Carvalho and John Terry are part of the back-four, with Inter Milan legend Javier Zanetti slotting in at right-back.

Three more former Chelsea players feature in the midfield, with Claude Makelele, Frank Lampard and Eden Hazard all in the mix along with Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil, who played for Mourinho during his spell at Real Madrid.
