Top 10 Best Football Midfielders
The Top TenXW
Look at his numbers, just look at it 232 goals and 172 assists. It's nearly impossible for any midfielder to scale such heights but not Frank Lampard. He is a legend, in every sense of the word. It was a pleasure watching him play. Too bad we won't be able to do it any longer. It's a pain, really. A pain that leaves a hole in the heart as deep as the ocean.
Franks the best he gets all the assists to chelsea and scores a lot. He's the top kicker on chelsea. If chelsea gets to a penalty shootout he kicks first because the coach relies on him
It's awesome to be the top scorer for the club and, he is a midfielder! He had scored a variety of wonder, from freekicks to headers, and surely, the goal from the tightest of angle beating valdes! He's a great midfielder.

Say all you want about Lampard's stats, but let's be honest, if we talk about the pure quality, Gerrard is above Lampard. The goals he scored for Liverpool and England were out of this world, and not to mention, crucial. He won Liverpool the champions league and FA cup by himself, and was arguably the best captain of the premier league era. He played in a mediocre team for his whole career and still did amazing, he didn't need to be put in a world class team to get global recognition, and that's why Liverpool fans will admit that for many years, Gerrard carried Liverpool. Lampard simply didn't have the same influence as Gerrard, or the "big game" attitude.
Gerrard is a wonderful football player and a brilliant role model I think every child should look up to him. He is 33 years old but can still play like ronaldo or messi steven is the king of football
He don't need any explanation.. Shoot power, accuracy, defense, attack, pass and leader.. He's just the BEST.
Best footballer of all time, despite playing with mediocre playersV4 Comments
Ronaldo has impressive skills with incredible power, he can manage to confuse defenders and also score goals in a slightly great distance, he can do what other players in this world cannot do
But he is not midfielder. He is a forward (winger)
Ronaldo is so awesome with his skills
Now he has not been too goodV10 Comments
No matter what anyone says, this guy is definitely the best midfielder ever! (Coming from someone who played pro in South America) his success in club and country can't lie, plus changing the whole tactic system in the best club in the world (Barcelona) is something only a legend could do. The brain of Barça/Spain and main point of the tiki-taka system, he pretty much controlled the whole team according to his thinking (check his highlights on YouTube), this world will definitely never see another footballer like Xavi Hernandez!
XAVI HAS TO BE AT LEAST IN THE TOP 3! He is an absolute legend! Without him Barcelona would not have scored half the goals they have scored this season! Pass-Master! - madcat701
Best in the world insane pass completion rate in his prime
Xavi in my opinion is the master of the midfieldV2 Comments
Cause he is a giant, sting midfielder for chelsea and scored lots of good, quality goals. Flynn age 8 - flynn
Why the hell is he seventh? He scored the best goal in football history! And even I admit, though I support England! Look if have not seen these people play, don't vote and leave this list now!
He is the only guy who won world cup for his country by alone
The best but not better than messi
This guy is way better messi!V1 Comment
The most prolific playmakers in present day football and he makes the whole attack look so simple by his passing ability... He can score from long range, inside the box... A full PACKAGE...
Have to respect in whatever club he plays does better passes than lampard and maradona is a drug head
The best of Midfielders ever experienced by soccer!
He must be on the top of the table!V9 Comments
Really? The best ever, Spain won the World Cup with his goal, Iniesta-Xavi-Messi are the best trio on football (soccer), but Iniesta is the Mastermind, the magician!V1 Comment
Deep-lying playmaker, an inventionV1 Comment
His ability to provide world class assists make him by far one of the best midfielders in the world
Zidane should definitely be in the top 5 not kaka ronaldo or lampard this guy is a legend and could school any of these players easily he was the heart and soul of any soccer team he is also rated upon the top 3 football players in the world.
This a joke rite? How the hell is zidane not #1 shoot even the top 3 you really don't know soccer then this guy carried France to the world cup as a rookie he was the best player on a real madrid team that had Ronaldo raul figo r carlos that's saying something! Plus he was still playing at a high level at the age of 35 got France back to the world cup!
Wow.. this is pathetic
Ronaldo and Lampard don't even come close to Zidane.
I guess people are just looking at modern day midfielders and not at the best of all time
The best old man and no one will pass his standardV2 Comments
