West Ham's Alex Song picks his best XI from team-mates at Bastia, Arsenal, Barcelona and Cameroon national side.

The Cameroon defender has opted for a 4-3-3 formation, and picks nine of his former Barcelona colleagues.

GOALKEEPER: Carlos Kameni

He could have played at one of the top teams in the Premier League. When I was playing for the (Cameroon) national team he would just say, 'just score and I will do the rest'. For me he is the best 'keeper.

RIGHT-BACK: Dani Alves

This guy is unbelievable. He plays like a joke. He makes things look so easy when he is going forward and his delivery is unbelievable.

CENTRE-BACK: Carlos Puyol

He is a character player because he never gives up. Every time you need character, you want players to be like him. When he says 'vamos' at training, that's it, you have to wake up.

He gives you motivation to come to training and is such a great professional. He is a captain and a leader.

CENTRE-BACK: Rigobert Song

He has the same character like Puyol. When I was young I was always watching him play. When you have this guy behind you, you don't have a lot of room. You will have a very bad night.

Every time you would play for the national side people would say, 'you have to play like Rigobert Song' because they know he never gives up and shows a fighting spirit.

LEFT-BACK: Jordi Alba

Jordi is like a small bike because he never stops running. He's very good with the feet as well. Every time he looks (to go) forward and attack.


Xavi is an unbelievable player. He gives you the tempo of the game. When you have this guy in the middle he sees everywhere (on the pitch) and always plays a good ball. He also knows how to slow the game down.

MIDFIELER: Andres Iniesta

Iniesta is the magician. For one player it could be hard, but for him it's easy. I see him training every single day, he was unbelievable.

When I went to Barcelona I was training with him but I couldn't get the ball off him.

MIDFIELDER: Cesc Fabregas

He is one of the most clever players I have played against. For him, he sees everywhere and gives a good delivery.

I know he is a quality player. He's done it at Arsenal and Barcelona so I was not surprised to see him come back to the Premier League with Chelsea.


He's just 23 and he has achieved so much at this age. When he came from Brazil people didn't think he would adapt to European football, but for him it's easy.

I think he is doing very, very well. He is fast and knows how to dribble. I'm sure he will do well in the Premier League as well because he has the ability.

STRIKER: Thierry Henry

Thierry is the king. We played away against Real Madrid in the Champions League and he scored that goal.

STRIKER: Lionel Messi

Messi is the best player I have seen in my life. There is nothing to say because he is just a genius. He is just 27 and has a lot of time to achieve so much more.

When he comes into training, he just doesn't lose the ball. And when he loses in training, he is upset and that's what makes him such a special player.
