Best Soccer Defenders
The Contenders: Page 2
The best left back in the world!
There is no other player who is better than him in the position that he plays!
Nobody can deliver the crosses that he does from the position he plays.
His counter attacking skills are superb!
He is the best defender in the world for me
Azpilicueta, Philip Lahm, Marcelo, Jordi Alba, Ricardo Rodrigues; I could go on all of these guys are a million miles better than ashleyV 2 Comments
Woah what the hell? Boateng is one of the best Centre Halfs in the world right now. should be top 20 at least
A very good all around defender that played for AC Milan and Lazio.
One of the most talented defenders in the history of football. Sadly because of injuries he wasnt able to become the beast he should've become. Too slow at times and not physical enough. But a legend he is. Deserves to be top 20. Imagine if he hadnt had his injuries. From an Inter fan, the utmost respect for this man.V 1 Comment
I joke at this page how can dani alves be 49th when people like terry carragher and luiz etc are in front of I'm laugh out loud by far the best attack minded defender in the world
He is the best right back in the world by far and part of one of the best teams ever. Named in the world XI but still placed in the 50s? Really? - onedaywecanrun
This is a joke he should be number 1
The Chelsea captain, John Terry, should be in the top 10 for he is old and still playing pretty well for Chelsea. Even though he done some bad stuff.
He is the total package at Defenseman. He can conver anyone in his path and is strong enough to take down any Attacker. He can run and do everything. Maicon is a stud. - welter64
Quick as lightning and has an incredible shot from distance. His runs up the sideline should impress anyone in the right mind.
Ridiculous. Maicon and Dani Alves are terrible at defending which is what this list is about. How can Maicon have the same amount of votes as Zanetti?

He was best player playing for Germany This year! Manchester United need to buy MatsV 1 Comment
Gareth Bale is truly a wizard. Should play for bigger teams like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United or Paris Saint Germain. I am Welsh as well, and a massive fan of Brilliant Bale. He's not really a defender, he is a Magical Midfielder. So proud of having him in the Welsh team.
Fast, powerful, vicious. He's UNSTOPPABLE. He was put in defense until. His goals came in handy therefore his manager put him midfield. He is number 1
By far the best defender in Premier League and midfielder for that fact. Maybe he'll get more votes when Man UTD buys him...
He's not a defender he's a right wing or plays as a striker - VinniebrodieisbossV 5 Comments
He is still young, I would say he is one of the top left back in la liga, simply he's fast, got some skills could also be a left wing back.
He is the best defender he is super fast and scores so much goals he should be number 1
Thuram quickly became one of the best defenders in the world after his debeut he became a very essential part of the France national soccer team he was fast and reliable on corner kicks he deserves to be on the top ten of this list not 17.
7th is too low for a great defender like Thuram. He doesn't let anything through. Top 5 definitely.
Simply the best. An incredible defender with speed and a lot of intelligence in his moves.
He didn't score much in his career but it's all thanks to him that France beat Croatia in semi final of 1998 world cup.
27th?! This list is an absolute joke!V 2 Comments
Yes, he's the best and he's playing in the best team - richie4life
Legendry Matt, is ANOTHER great German defender who played for Bayern Munich.In 1990, he won the fifa world cup with Germany and was declared as the captian.
