Current African player of the year Yaya Toure named an all-time dream team in a sponsorship video for Nissan. The captain of the Ivorian national team suprisingly did not mention any African legend in his best XI which reveals a star-studded list including Barcelona's Lionel Messi, Toure however join in the Messi/Ronaldo rivalry by not including Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo in his dream-team.
The Manchester City player includes legends Pele, Zinedine Zidane, Diego Maradona and Roberto Baggio. Former Arsenal skipper Patrick Vieira made the cut in midfield while former Manchester United player and World Cup winner Fabian Barthez was Toure's No. 1 pick. Brazil's 2002 World Cup winning captain also made the team as well as Italy and AC Milan star Franco Baresi.
Aside from not including any African player, the 31-year-old player also did not include any Englishman in his ultimate side.
Toure will not be joining in the Championship action with his side Tuesday night against Bayer Munich due to a suspension.

He would have at least name one African player, Drogba or Okocha, come-on Toure!
