Oh come on people! Seriously this guy's ability to read the game is unmatched by anyone ever! Nobody could play for a team in the premier league with the injury he had. NOBODY. This guy didn't have a proper full training session for most of his career and yet still trumps everyone on this list. If Ledley did not have his injury, I guarantee you the best teams in the world would be queuing up to buy him. Its almost scary to imagine what a fully fit Ledley King could have accomplished!

Oh Ledley Ledley, he's only got one knee, he's better than John Terry, oh Ledley, Ledley


Amazing amazing amazing player just didn't get famous like kaka

I don't know why this guy doesn't get more credit. The fact that he does not play in Europe is puzzling me. Did any one watch him in world cup?

89Daniel PassarellaDaniel Alberto Passarella is an Argentine retired footballer who played as a centre back, and former manager of the Argentina and Uruguay national football teams.

How is he behind the error prone Ayala. Even Maradona who has a personal feud with Passarella admitted he was the best defender he had ever seen. Probably the best Argentine defender of all time, if not on par with Javier Zanetti.

Of course he is the best right back!

100Eric Abidal

The greatest of the great, he's not mentioned in most lists because he is the greatest of all time.
