Three current and three former City players feature in Gael Clichy’s ultimate footballer.

After Ilkay Gundogan kicked things off, it was the full-back’s turn to create his super player and there were plenty of tough decisions for the Frenchman.

A Premier League winner with City and Arsenal, where he was a member of the 'Invincibles' squad, there was no shortage of quality for Gael to choose from, having played alongside the likes of Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira.

Current team-mates Fabian Delph, Vincent Kompany and Silva all made the cut, as the 31-year-old chose their passion, strength and left foot respectively.

For the trio of former Blues, it was Joleon Lescott’s heading ability, James Milner’s stamina and Vieira’s leadership that were included in this recipe of football perfection.

A colleague at Arsenal and at international level, striker Henry just edged out Raheem Sterling in the pace department, while Robert Pires got the nod for his right boot.

Gael reckons he’s picked a player good enough to compete with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo – what do you think?
