The former Chelsea and England frontman has played with plenty of esteemed names during his career and you can see which XI he rates as the best by watching the video here.
But, for a taster of the talent to have made his selection, read on...
GOALKEEPER - Petr Cech (Chelsea)
He's a world class goalkeeper and probably the best I've played with. He's into his music and has his own band - you've got to be a little bit crazy to do your own shows and gigs!
RIGHT BACK - Guy Demel (West Ham)
He's definitely up there with some of the best right backs I've played with. He's into his fashion, too - he's got his own fashion label. He gives me clothes now and again to model for him because I've got those model looks. Only joking!
LEFT BACK - Ashley Cole (Chelsea)
It was close between Graeme Le Saux and Ashley Cole. I've gone with my mate Ashley. I'm really tight with him and he's helped me through my career and given me a lot of advice. I think he's still the best left-back in the Premier League. He's not playing at the moment but that's just circumstances.
CENTRE BACK - Marcel Desailly (Chelsea)
He's a legend. At Chelsea he was really good with the younger players and gave me a lot of advice. Actually - he broke my leg! He cracked the outside of my leg but I carried on training and only found out two days after! That'll live long in my memory anyway...
CENTRAL MIDFIELD - Frank Lampard (Chelsea)
He's just a ledge. I used to talk to my uncle about how hard he used to work in training. He always used to shoot outside the box and all he'd try to focus on was getting it on target, getting it on target... He kept practising and he's got it nailed on now. He's such an influential player.
CENTRAL MIDFIELD - Emmanuel Petit (Chelsea)
He was a legend in my eyes before he came to Chelsea. He used to talk me through the game and encourage me. I had a lot of respect for him. He was a winner.
STRIKER - Gianfranco Zola (Chelsea)
As a manager at West Ham he got the best out of me. I learnt a lot from him, even when I was a youngster coming through at Chelsea. He's a world class player. I remember Craig Bellamy pulled him up when he was in charge of West Ham. He was out here training and Craig said 'you're not doing anything for the players' confidence. We really need to win the next game and you're embarrassing us!'
