Ex-Arsenal star Serge Gnabry names all-time best XI team-mates including Hector Bellerin and names Ozil as best player

FORMER Arsenal star Serge Gnabry has named his all-time XI of team-mates past and present.

The German was never really given a proper chance at the Emirates, playing only 18 times for the Gunners first team.

But despite this, four Gooners have made the cut – including current right-back Hector Bellerin.

Gnabry, who won the treble with Bayern Munich last season, unsurprisingly selected Manuel Neuer in goal.

Pal Bellerin, 26, beat World Cup winner Benjamin Pavard to making the cut, while Canadian sensation Alphonso Davies is at left-back.

Former Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny, who forced his way out in 2019, gets the nod at the back, alongside burly current Bayern star Niklas Sule.

Old Gunners favourite Santi Cazorla, now playing under Xavi at Al Sadd, is in midfield, alongside German star Joshua Kimmich – meaning Liverpool ace Thiago Alcantara misses out.

Gnabry's star-studded attack features Kingsley Coman, scorer of the winning goal in last season's Champions League final, on the right flank.

And former Manchester City livewire Leroy Sane adds further pace and skill on the left.

Mesut Ozil, who Gnabry previously claimed is the best player he's ever played with, takes the No10 position.

The winger told Goal in 2019: "I've already played with many good guys. But, if I have to highlight one, I take Mesut Ozil."


Unsurprisingly, Bayern goal machine Robert Lewandowski gets the nod upfront, having scooped The Best Fifa's Men's Player award last year.

Gnabry and Co are supposed to take on Iceland in Duisberg this evening.

But the match is in doubt, after Germany star Jonas Hofmann tested positive for Covid-19 just hours before kick-off.
