Top 10 Best Playmakers This Season (current)

#10. Dimitri Payet (Olympique de Marseille)

Both physical and mental attributes are important for the play-maker of any team. Usually he is the most important person on the pitch with the ability to decide games. It’s not just about pace or skill, but also about having the intelligence and vision to locate the gaps that others can’t whilst possessing the technique to pass the ball through almost tiny invisible spaces to a fellow team mate. Here are the ten best playmakers in the world today. Marseille’s versatile Frenchman is an all rounder. He possesses pace and power; is very quick on the ball, and can more times than not, play an accurate pass. This lethal combination of mental and physical skill makes Payet a threat to any back four. At the time of writing he has the most key passes of any player in Europe this year. Watch on:

#9. Kevin De Bruyne

It’s Wolfsburg’s magical Belgian, Kevin De Bruyne. He’s a visionary play maker, having the ability to make things happen in either roles of winger or central midfielder. His balance is what really shines during the game with a magical first touch that rarely fails him. He is currently the second player in Europe who has the most key passes. Watch on:

#8. Toni Kroos
