Murray went with an all-Barca midfield, explaining his choices by saying: "It's not easy to beat Barcelona's midfield when they were at their peak. You have (Sergio) Busquets, Xavi and (Andres) Iniesta. I mean, maybe there have been better players but that midfield – it was like a joke."

Murray also weighed in on the debate between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, saying he'd go with Messi if he had to pick between the superstar pair.
