#10. Sergio Ramos
He may not be everyone’s favourite player but there is no doubting that he’s a great defender. The Real Madrid man is having a great career and their could still be a lot of silverware for him to win just yet. What sets him apart from most other defenders is his incredible reading of the game and anticipation of what the attacker is going to do next. Ramos would be higher on this list if he didn’t have to odd act of stupidity in getting himself sent off, but as he ages, it’s very possible that he is only going to improve as his football intelligence shines above the red mist which can descend.
