Former Chelsea player on why Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was suitable for his side of former team-mates

Mario Melchiot says Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink had all the attributes to be part of his dream Premier League five-a-side team of former team-mates.

"He's on your team but he is also a little bit of an enemy if you don't give him the ball; that's what was so great about him," said Melchiot, who made 284 PL appearances for Chelsea, Birmingham City and Wigan Athletic.

Melchiot also explains the secret to John Terry ousting Didier Deschamps, Marcel Desailly and Frank Leboeuf from Chelsea's defence and selects one Manchester United player from his Ajax days.
