42Lucas LeivaV1 Comment

44Zlatan IbrahimovicZlatan Ibrahimović is a Swedish professional footballer who plays for an English club Manchester United and the Sweden national team for which he is captain.

If he was born 30 years earlier we would say that he was the best footballer ever.

More than 35 years old. You should see him play. Awesome finisher

Truly a great player better than Messi and Ronaldo

45Miguel Michu
46Johan Cruyff

Why this guy is not top ten is a travesty!

50Andy Cole

Was never truly given the credit he deserves for his outstanding goalscoring record. -

51Laurent Koscielny

A solid defender who is more than happy to have a pop at goal, the sign of a true player!

52Santi Cazorla
53Sokratis Papastathopoulos

One of the best defenders ever and yet its been only a year he plays in a good team like Dortmund but his level is for Barcha.

He is playing for Dortmund but his quality is Bayern or Barchelona

54Dragan Stojković

I used to be in awe of his as a kid, but with time forgot how good he is... Well, just search his name on YouTube, and you will see... Fully comparable to what Messi is doing, the guy has been just unlucky to be injured when moving from red star belgrade to marseille

55David VillaDavid Villa Sánchez is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a striker and also serves as captain for New York City FC in Major League Soccer.

Barca sold him for 5 million when he's a million times better than busquets

56Robert LewandowskiRobert Lewandowski is a Polish professional footballer who plays as a striker for German club Bayern Munich, and captains the Poland national team.

There is no reason why this man is not on this list, by far Poland's greatest player of all time and he can't stop scoring goals

57Morgan Schneiderlin

Hell yea, If we didn't have we would of got relegated no doubt.

58Luc Nilis
59Dimitar Berbatov

Top class striker... Scores many goals but is judged on his speed... Smh

60Carlton Palmer

Unfairly Maligned by plastic England fans, but a very effective player.

Possibly the best footballer ever!
