Thiago Silva (BRA – PSG)
He is everything you want in your defender …
and more. His incredible consistency and all
-roundness makes him the undisputed best
defender in the world. He has it all : work-rate,
calmness, strength, intelligence and leadership.
Above all that, he can carry out and distribute
the ball very well, especially for a center-back.
His influence on the defensive line was show
-cased in the best, or should we say the worst,
way in the semi-final of the World Cup. His
absence both as a great defender and an
excellent leader saw Brazil defense being totally
invisible.If he stays away from injuries, it’s very
hard to see him overthrown of his throne as the
best centre-back in the world anytime soon.
