Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta talked about his ideal futsal lineup. It is worth noting that the five players he selected are all attacking players and there are no defenders.
Arteta said this: “The first player I have to choose, I have not played with him, I have not coached him: Messi. This is for sure, because in my opinion, he is the best player in the history of football. The most impactful player, we’ve never seen anyone do what he did on the field in all these years.”
“Then there’s Cristiano Ronaldo, which is also someone I would choose without hesitation. I would also choose Ronaldo because he’s a player I’ve loved since I was a kid. Considering Cruyff’s intelligence and everything he’s done, I’m definitely I will also put him in my lineup, they are all offensive players.”
“The other player I had to choose was Maradona because of the Argentinian origins in my family and because of my wife. During that time, Maradona changed football, changed Barcelona and he had to be in my choice Among them. There are no defenders! We don’t need a goalkeeper either, it’s five-a-side, there is no goalkeeper.”
“If it was a team of six, then I would choose a friend of mine, Reina. I played with him in Barcelona from the age of 16. He is 41 and still playing and his career is amazing. incredible.”
