Passing may be one of the most basic skills in football, but few have mastered the art. We're not just talking about players who get all the assists, though the majority on this list fill that category anyway. We're looking at players who have perfected every aspect of passing such as accuracy, weight and timing. Whether it be flicks, crosses, long-range lobs or through-balls, these players can do it all. Without further ado, let's take a look at five players with the best pass completion rate in football right now.
5 Thiago Alcantara (Spain/Liverpool) - 90.9%
Thiago has already made more passes than Jordan Henderson, N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba in the Premier League in 2021-22. And he is regarded as the best passer in English premier league so far this season .
4 Marco Verratti (Italy/Paris Saint-Germain) - 91.2%
Marco is a genuinely world-class player, from the midfield metronome, who was a hub of creativity and a clear level above. And the stats were there to back that feeling up, with Verratti completing the most touches, passes, tackles and chances created of anyone else on the pitch.
3 Sergio Busquets (Spain/Barcelona) - 91.3%
The small decrease in his pass completion rate is definitely nothing to worry about. He still ranks within the top ten of all La Liga players this season, and it is completely understandable when one realises how much more he is doing with his passes.
2 Frenkie De Jong (Netherlands/Barcelona) - 91.5%
With each passing game, Frenkie de Jong gains importance and influence in Barcelona side and he showed it again as he came off the bench at the Estadio Benito Villamarin.
1 Toni Kroos (Germany/Real Madrid) - 92%
Kroos is maturing like a fine wine, too. The German is as cool and composed as ever, receding down the pitch to control things from deeper, having started his career as a more attacking midfielder. He's 31 - and still has another few years left in the tank.
