Playing a year shorter but more number of matches than Carles Puyol, Jamie Carragher outranks him and comes at the 9th spot in our countdown. He started his career as a striker, transitioned to an attacking midfielder, but soon became a great defender for Liverpool. Carragher was such a player who could play at any position, but his versatility also proved to backfire his progress in the early stages of his career. If you count both senior and youth appearances, then Carragher has made more than 730 appearances in total!
