Over the years, we have seen many incredible midfielders and these players have been active for both club and country.
Central Midfielders play an integral part in any team’s setup, as a good midfielder handles winning back the ball, dictating play on the pitch, as well as setting up goal scoring opportunities.
Each midfielder has unique abilities, which make them talented in their own right.
CMs come in all shapes and sizes, which often makes it difficult to compare them with one another.
FourFourTwo have given their best shot picking out the 10 players they believe to be the greatest men in the middle of the pitch.

Alcantara, 27, combines South America street –smartness and dribbling skills with Spanish control and passing ability.
