Starting with the goalkeeper, the 29-year-old Brazil midfielder has selected current goalkeeping coach of the Brazil national team and Galatasaray Cláudio Taffarel because “he was a goalkeeper who was not only great, but he was how many players around the world saw themselves.”
For his top defender, Paulinho opts for his fellow Brazilian, Cafu, then Barcelona great Xavi for midfield and then he goes for Brazilian Ronaldo over Leo Messi.
Sorry Messi …
