EPL Star Names Pienaar In His 5-A-Side Dream Team

A Premier League star has selected Steven Pienaar in his five-a-side dream team, saying he is a top Premier League player, who “loved nutmegging” opponents.

Click through the mini-gallery above to view which four players join Pienaar in Coleman's dream team.

Schillo’s former teammate Seamus Coleman, who still stars as right-back for Everton, was full of praise for the former Bafana Bafana.

"In midfield (of my five-a-side team), Steven Pienaar. He is one of the best players I have played with,” Coleman said, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.

"He made the game look so easy and loved nutmegging people in training and he done it to me countless times.

"It annoys you at first but you can't help but laugh because he does it all the time, but he's a top player and has been a top Premier League player."

Here is Coleman’s complete five-a-side dream team:

GK: Shay Given

DF: Phil Jagielka

MF: Mikel Arteta

The 34-year-old South African left Everton when his contract expired at the end of last season, and has since made 10 appearances for Sunderland after joining them on a free transfer.
