What Is AC Milan’s Best Five-Aside Team?

By Ollie Irish

If you had to select the best five-aside team from your club’s squad, who would be in it? There can be only five, as they once said in Highlander (sort of). Today we do AC Milan, a creaking squad largely made-up of egos and old men.

CHRISTIAN ABBIATI – Milan’s first-choice keeper, so I’ll stick with him, the big bald fascist.

THIAGO SILVA –  Brazilian defender with plenty of speed and athleticism. Comfortable on the ball too. Thiago gets the nod over the likes of Nesta and Zambrotta, simply because he doesn’t yet need a bus pass. Zing!

MATHIEU FLAMINI – Don’t tell anyone, but I always had a soft spot for Flamini. I think he’d be the perfect goal-to-goal midfielder in five-aside: he’s strong, intelligent and has a wicked shot.

KEVIN-PRINCE BOATENG – Powerful, direct, energetic, fast, tattooed, good on the ball. I take in-form KP and his many tats over men like Pato and Robinho (on recent evidence that is).

ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC – Hard as nails, immensely skilful in a tight spot. Okay, he’d be the worst five-aside goal hanger you’ve ever seen, but if things got heated, you’d want the Big Z on your team.

So no place for Milan’s party animals, Robinho and Ronaldinho. No Gattuso or Pirlo either. Agree/disagree with our selection?

    surely ronaldinho should be just so he can get some exercise

  2. Ollie Irish says:

    good point

  3. spectator says:

    seedorf over beoteng any day of the week

  4. SamHumphreys says:

    Tough one, Robinho and Ronaldinho could easily win you games but with Ibra aswell, could Flamini cope with the work rate of 3 men? probably could knowing him

  5. Adje says:

    Abbiati, Silva, Flamini, Seedorf, Ibra
    Seedorf is strong as a tank and has great vision. A force to be reckoned with

  6. yeeeeeeeah says:

    robinho and ronaldinho should be there. Skill is really important on a tiny pitch

    Funny, because Kevin-Prince actualy started his carrer in 5-a-side games, in “the cage”, here in Berlin.

    Funny you mention Kevin-Prince, because he actualy started his career here in Berlin, in “the cage”, in these 5-a-side games.

  10. Travis says:

    no brazilians on my team thanks, i feel like halfway through the game they’d get bored and then go get plastered.

  11. Danno says:

    No way Boateng should be in there, he’s a total bell end – in your five-a-side team he’d be one of the annoying, languid ones who skips training, smashes up cars and gets sent off for dissent. At least Robinho or Ronaldinho would add immense skillz and the occasional backheel to the lazy mix.

  12. shawn says:

    no way! yours lacks flair! five a side football, hello?!?

    this should be my pick:
    abbiati, t.silva, KPB, robinho and pato

  13. deckard says:

    ollie in ur team of the decade you said ronaldinho made up tricks “on the spot”. yes u talking about his barca days but talent never dies, an r80 in the mood will still fuck any defense up left, right, and centre. i’m losing respect for ur football intelligence by not picking the king of samba football.

    Surely that must be the D team at best?
