The Contenders: Page 3

41 Edgar Davids

The perfect defensive midfielder. Tackling, dribbling, passing, speed, shooting, strength and loads of tenacity. I "The Pitbull" was a phenomenal footballer. One of my favourite players of all time

Got a unique look and unique style of play

46 Rafael Marquez

One of the first Mexican internationals he is just a great player especially during those barcElina years

47 Mesut Ozil Mesut Ozil

Mesut Ozil to me is more than just a regular midfielder. His passing, vision, his control and his speed is so unique, that I would rank him in the top 20. This guy indeed is almost a successor of Zidane.

Arsenal and the great Arsene Wenger get him for their record signing fee even Thiery Henry was not worth that need I say more?

Great striker, got in the 2011/12 season 48 goals out 48 games

Scored a lot of goals at 2006 and these years

49 Jaap Stam

74th really?
I'm an Arsenal fan yet I rate Stam as the best CB iv seen.
Best all round, was as fast as he was strong and don't forget merciless in the tackle.
