Top Ten Footballers of 2013

The Top TenXW

1Cristiano RonaldoCristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro, GOIH is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Portugal national team.

Ronaldo is far far away better than messi
If there were no xavi, iniesta fabregas or other midfielders, messi will score rarely
And another reason that Ronaldo is a winger (Lst) and messi a forward (CST)
Ronaldo scores without xavi iniesta and other brilliant midfielders that messi have
He plays by his own and he himself plays at left wing and benzema at forward

There's a lot of debates between messi and ronaldo about who is the best football player at present... But I think ronaldo is the best. First of all messi gets a lot of support from his brilliant fellow midfielders.. But ronaldo is a complete player. He can assist and score without a sweat. He is strong and is very agile and fast. He is a goalmachine! So to me without a doubt ronaldo is the best fotball star at present.

Ronaldo can beat Messi anytime and anywhere. he is way faster than Messi and is the best dribbler in the world. Messi can never Ronaldo not even in his dreams!

Number 1 for me

2Lionel MessiLionel Andrés "Leo" Messi is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona. He is also known as one of the greatest football players of all time. He was born in Rosario, Argentina on June 24th, 1987.

Hey! Hey! Something terribly went wrong. Who kept Ronaldo on the top? Messi is always the best. He is going to win his 5th Ballon d'Or this Year. He is a super human. Ronaldo on the top? You must be Joking! Messi had been suffering from hamstring injuryfor the past 1 month. But now, he is back. He is going to snatch his actual position. Wait and see.

Messi does what Ronaldo can't he is faster
More skillful and has a totally better attitude compared to Ronaldo who is always losing control and being an ass when his team is losing

Messi is the best footballer in the world. Ronaldo is not suppose to be the best because he won the FIFA ballon dor 2015 is that not a big reason to say that Messi is better than Ronaldo!?

Messi is the best footballer in the world

3Gareth BaleGareth Frank Bale is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a winger for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Wales national team.

Awesome tricks. If he showed off his fancy footwork to anyone on this list he would come second under ronldo

Why on earth is Gareth Bale not top! He is PFA Player of the year and is the top scoring prem midfielder this season! He is epic

Gareth Bale is so much better than Neymar. He has the speed, skills, shooting ability that Neymar can't even dream of!
He is the 2013 PFA Player Of The Year for a reason. Bale is the 2nd (or maybe 3rd) best in the world after Ronaldo.

4NeymarNeymar da Silva Santos Júnior, commonly known as Neymar or Neymar Jr., is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Spanish club FC Barcelona and the Brazil national team as a forward or winger, and is also the captain of the national team.

When he hurt his back and had to miss his match Brazil lost 7-1 to Germany in the world cup -

Pure domination. But his white hair is pretty disturbing.

He is one of Brazil's best players yet he should be
Be either first or second

Neymar is such a beast

5Mesut Ozil

Mesut Ozil is the best playmaker ever, & he's the best premier league
Player, now.

6Andres IniestaAndrés Iniesta Luján is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for FC Barcelona and the Spain national team.

Club: Barcelona
Country: Spain
Position: Midfielder (LM)
Rated: 91
Estimated Worth: £50m
Iniesta, known for his powerful and speedy runs down the wing of the pitch and then a decent ball in and a goal, it's just that easy for Iniesta to bag an assist or goal.

7Robin van PersieDutch footballer from Rotterdam born on August 6 1983. Currently plays for the Turkish club Fenerbahçe S.K and The Netherlands national football team as the number 11. Robin Van Persie is known for playing for Arsenal and Manchester United, though his most notable goal was his header against Spain more.

Club: Man United
Country: Holland (Netherlands)
Position: Striker (ST)
Rated: 89
Van Persie is one of the best strikers in the game as he won the golden boot last year and is on Luis Suarez's tail this season. Can he win for a second time?

Van Perdue is blessed with the greatest clinical striking

Van Persie is one of the best players in the world since he was last seasons top scorer.Plus at Man united he has got even better. I know he wil win the golden boot again.

Best player in the world

8Wayne RooneyWayne Mark Rooney is an English professional footballer who plays for and captains both Manchester United and the England national team.

Rooney is a great player his amongst of the best player in the world. When he first debut against fenerbahce he was inside the scoresheet helping united win 6-2 against the turkish giant he deserve in this best footballer list he scored from free kick and long range and when he first play with everton he scored a screamer against arsenal he was 18 that time nobody who is at his age scored that screamer and he score against a big club from a very long distance he deserved this spot.

One of the best all-rounders in the world. He consistently proves he can do anything with a football and has scored some wonderful goals because of that. Rooney deserves a lot of credit

Awesome, but needs to loss a bit of weight

Best player ever without doubt

10Luis SuarezLuis Alberto Suárez Díaz is a Uruguayan professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Barcelona and the Uruguay national team as a striker.

The Contenders

11Franck Ribéry

Club: Bayern Munich
Country: France
Position: Midfielder (LM)
Rated: 91
Estimated Worth: 40m
Ribery is Bayern Munich's best player thanks to his control, pace, skills and sprint speed. He can grab assists and goals in just one match.

12Zlatan IbrahimovićZlatan Ibrahimović is a Swedish professional footballer who plays for an English club Manchester United and the Sweden national team for which he is captain.

How is neymar, hazard, rvp, Rooney above him ibra is simply the 3rd best at the moment he's a tank neymar how is he let a lone in the top 50 but 3rd what the hell bale is good but not 4th best hazard the most over rated player at the moment he's good but doesn't deserve to be in the top 10 or top 50 my opinion

He's shot, is the best of the earth

Club: Paris Saint-German
Country: Sweden
Position: Striker (CF)
Rated: 89
Estimated Worth: £40m
Ibrahimovic has a great advantage because he's extra tall. He's bagged loads of goals this season including an extra special scissor kick against Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda.

16Radamel Falcao García

Club: Atletico Madrid
Country: Columbia
Position: Striker (ST)

One of the best finishers in the game, with Falcao's finishing he can leave defenders choking down his dust as he goes through on to goal.

17Edinson Cavani

Cavani is the greatest Finisher after Ibrahimovic!
A very great talent who still needs to be higher on this list..

18Mario Gotze
