#10. Jerome Boateng
The German international joined Bayern Munich in the summer of 2011 from Manchester City and since then, has developed into one of the finest defenders in the game today. Winning accolades for both club and country, Boateng is a towering presence in the heart of defense and is not the type of player opposition players would want to mess with. With excellent shoulder strength and commanding presence when it comes to snuffing out aerial threats, Boateng is one of the strongest footballers in the game today and will continue to do so until he hangs his boots.
