Before I start listing they greatest in the world,let me enlighten you on who a defender is and there role.
A defender primary job is to deny penetration.the defender does this by preventing the attacker from either passing forward, dribbling towards the goal or shooting.
He Are The Top 5 Greatest:
4 Cafu:The only player to feature in three consecutive World Cup finals, winning two of them (1994 and 2002) with Brazil.Cafu was good doing his playing days.i acknowledge him because of his attacking abilities despite playing as a defender.
3 Franz benkerbuer: This is one of the players I love so much because he invented the sweeper role in football. He also won the world cup as a player and manager for Germany.
2 Baresi: Many will agree with me that Baresi is one of the most iconic footballer in the world. He was so good during his playing days. He also teamed up with Paolo Maldini, they formed a deadly duo.
1 Paolo maldini : Maldini is greatest defender of all time. He played both as a left back and as a central back. He is so iconic that he won 19 trophies with Ac milan. I love the way he play because of his defending instincts.
