“There are a lot of players who can claim it. Like (Robert) Lewandowski, considering the number of goals he has scored and the way he weighs in matches.
“Recently, Mohamed Salah has also been unplayable. And obviously, as a Chelsea player, I’m going to name my club teammates like Jorgi (Jorginho), who won the Euro and the Champions League, as well as NG (N’Golo Kanté), who is quite simply one of the best players in the world.”
