Video – Football’s 10 best midfielders

OK, this week’s top ten is likely to be a little more contentious. I made my original list of greats and I had twenty-one players just off the top of my head. Any one of those twenty-one, as well as many others I’m sure that I haven’t thought about, would be perfectly at home in this list of the top ten.

Here goes my subjective list for starters. I don’t for a second suggest that this list is the definitive one and that I’ve got it right. The ten I have come up with aren’t bad though!

    2. Devin Rodgers says:

      who were the other eleven on the list? Ballack, Becks, Ronaldinho, Keane, Figo? Any of those

    3. aviral says:

      this list is a waste of paper ronaldo(christiano)is 100 times betterthan all these 10

    4. DenisG2000 says:

      Aviral, I agree that Ronaldo is good. But, how many World Cups has he won? How many European Championships has he won? Does he make every team he is on a champion? That is the sign of a GREAT midfielder……..that is why these ten were chosen. Not just for their dribbling abilities.
