Glen Johnson has described former Chelsea team-mate Juan Sebastian Veron as an “unbelievable” player.
The Argentinian midfielder joined Chelsea in 2003 after a two-year spell at Manchester United, having signed for the Red Devils in 2001 as the most expensive transfer in English football at the time.
He only made 14 appearances for the Blues in the 2003-04 season, before joining Inter Milan on loan and then returning to his boyhood club Estudiantes in Argentina.
Chelsea fans did not see the best of Veron, with just one goal in his seven Premier League appearances.

But Johnson has spoken about just how good the Argentine was, after including him in his ultimate five-a-side team.
“[Juan Sebastian] Veron was unbelievable,” he told Talksport.
“He just wasn’t a proper athlete in terms of pace and power, but I have put him in there, because on a five-a-side pitch, he could be the main man.”

There was, however, no place for Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard in Johnson’s five-a-side team, with the Blues’ all-time top goalscorer one of two surprise omissions from his team.
Johnson did pick former Chelsea captain John Terry, with the rest of the five-a-side team made up of team-mates from the ex-England defender’s time at Liverpool.
Pepe Reina, Philippe Coutinho and Luis Suarez were the other players picked by Johnson in his team.
