Former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has been asked to compile his best ever starting eleven, and what a team it is.

You’d expect a star-studded team as the Italian has been in charge of AC Milan, Juventus, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.

Two Chelsea legends made the cut in Frank Lampard and John Terry.

With Gianluigi Buffon in goal, Ancelotti went for a back four of John Terry, Thiago Silva, Cafu and Paolo Maldini.

In midfield, he opted for Andrea Pirlo, Frank Lampard, Kaka and Zinedine Zidane.

Upfront, Ancelotti went for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Andriy Shevchenko.

This is indeed a star-studded team, but you’ll be surprised to find out that the Italian didn’t add Cristiano Ronaldo to his team, whom he managed at Real Madrid.

What do you think of this team?
