Chelsea legend Branislav Ivanovic has been named as Chelsea’s best ever right-back.

According to former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy, it was a tough call to make because Cesar Azpilicuta has been brilliant for the Blues.

Cundy told talkSPORT: “This was a tough one because Cesar Azpilicueta has done a brilliant job since being at Chelsea but ‘Brana’ gets in just ahead.

“What he did sometimes gets overlooked because of the players he had around him.”

Current Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was named as Chelsea’s greatest player ever.

Cundy added: “There was a period of about two to three years where Frank was maybe the best goalscoring midfielder in the world.  It was phenomenal. For five straight seasons between 2005-2010 he was getting at least 20 goals from midfield.

“He’s Chelsea’s leading goalscorer which from midfield is remarkable.

“Frank hardly ever got injured I think. His relationship with Didier was absolutely key too. They linked up so many times on the pitch.

“He’s Chelsea’s greatest ever player. He was there for a long time and continually improved. People forget he was Chelsea’s captain during the finals of their European cup final wins – the Champions League in 2012 and Europa League in 2013. So he was also another leader in there.”
