Zinedine Zidane made his selection for the best eleven players he would like to manage and much to the surprise of a few and to the expectation of many, the Real Madrid team B, Castilla coach included seven Madrid players in Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Marcelo, Pepe, Iker Casillas, Luka Modric and Sergio Ramos.

Only two Barcelona players, Lionel Messi and Dani Alves made the 42 year-old’s dream team with PSG striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Manchester City’s Yaya Toure completing the eleven.

In his formation, Ronaldo leads the attack of the France 98 World Cup winner; supported by Messi, Benzema and Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is to play from the front right corner.

The backline consists of Real Madrid back rock except for Dani Alves who is the non Galactico amongst the trio of Sergio Ramos, Pepe and Marcelo; with Iker Casillas manning the posts.

Yaya Toure and Luka Modric are to charge from the middle of the pack.

Record signings Gareth Bale, Luis Suarez and James Rodriguez were overlooked even on the bench with Zidane choosing World Cup winner Manuel Neuer, his Germany team-mate Phillip Lahm, Frenchmen Raphael Varane, Franck Ribery and Paul Pogba, Barcelona's Iiesta and Toure's Manchester City team-mate Sergio Aguero.
