Best Soccer Defenders

The Contenders: Page 4XW

62Maza Rodriguez

I'm entirely confused as to how Rodriguez isn't in the top ten defenders. Someone who moves as swiftly as he does while maintaining strict defenses deserves to be among the best. - kusanagi_sanasara

A truly solid defender in Mexico. Plus he plays for club America.

65Ricardo Osorio
66Tony McManus
67Alex Rodrigo Dias da Costa

he a quality defender and he plays for chelsea

68Tony Adams

What, Tony was and is an arsenal legend. To be 27 is an insult. He is a fantastic defender and knew the game like the back of his hand. The only other better arsenal player was Thierry Henry, the best striker in the world when he was at his peak

How can this man not be in the top 30 let alone the top ten he wos a rock for arsenal and england for years

Amazing player well under rated

69Radostin Kishishev

Great name- Great Player

Cannot fault this guy... Great 40 yarder the other day... Top Quality

70Herman Abanda
71Thomas Vermaelen

Best defender in Arsenal.

72Paolo Montero
73Maman Abdurahman
74Jose Santamaria
75Berti Vogts
76Raphael Varane

The best defender in real madrid I'd say... Very outstanding performance and top class defending..

What. Varane doesn't even start in Real Madrid yet he's on the list for the greatest defenders in the history of the game. Same ranking as Santamaria, a real Real Madrid legend? Just no.

77Pablo Zabaleta
78Toby Alderweireld

One of the best defenders in the premier league right now. Has patched a Tottenham defense that had been infamous for being easy to penetrate and has helped them to have the best defense in the league.
