#5. George Elokobi
He may not have the skill set to attract interest from some of the biggest clubs in the world but George Elokobi is no slouch when it comes to holding his own on the pitch. One of the most intimidating sights in football today, Elokobi could often be mistaken for a bodybuilder trying his luck in football. The Cameroonian has slowly drifted towards football obscurity but one thing is for certain – we wouldn’t want to see Lionel Messi picking up the ball and looking run rings around this strongman who is very much uncompromising when it comes to taking players out with crunching tackles.
