Manchester United fan Olly Murs picks his dream five-a-side team...
Devout Manchester United fan Olly Murs admits promoting his new album and his hosting commitments on the Xtra Factor - the spin-off of the very television show that shot him to fame in 2009 - mean his weekends spent at Old Trafford watching his beloved Red Devils have been limited of late.
But the Essex boy admits "working his a**e off" all becomes worth it when it leads to a No.1 record - with his latest single 'Troublemaker' (featuring Flo Rida) having been sat at the summit of the UK Top 40 for two consecutive weeks.
Speaking ahead of the X Factor final this weekend, Murs says he is looking forward to catching United in action over his well-earned Christmas break, and got himself back in the Red Devils spirit by sharing his United-themed fantasy five-a-side team with Sky Sports
He was the best goalkeeper the Premiership has ever had, next to David Seaman. Those two were the best this country has seen. Schmeichel's got a big frame and in a five-a-side goal he's going to block everything and scare people.
He's a great midfielder and also a great defender of the ball. He'd sweep up everything and also put the fear into the opposition. In five-a-side football you only really need one good defender, because it's all about goals. So you need Roy there to mop up things and pass it forward.
Ronaldo edges in just in front of Wayne Rooney, who's on the bench with Paul Scholes and David Beckham. What Ronaldo achieved at Manchester United and with Real Madrid has been pretty phenomenal. He won World Player of the Year at Old Trafford. He's so quick, he's got great feet, he's strong. Every United fan wants him back at the club at some point - he's just a great player.
He's the most decorated Manchester United player and he's made the most Premier League appearances. He can drop into midfield, he can score goals, he can run with it - he can do everything. He's brilliant, he's just a great professional.
Cantona also makes the cut over Rooney purely because he's 'ooh-aah Cantona'. He's the guy that changed English football when he signed for United. He was one of the massive reasons why United are where they are now. His ability with the ball was just insane. He's just a world class player and, as a United fan, he is up there with the best.
Five songs Olly would have on in the dressing room to fire up his side...
Maroon 5 - One More Night
The Automatic - Monster
The Killers - Mr Brightside
Kasabian - Days Are Forgotten
Bruno Mars - Locked Out of Heaven
Olly's third album 'Right Place Right Time' is out now, which features the No.1 single 'Troublemaker' ft. Flo Rida. Visit his official website.
