All right, ladies and gentlemen, here we go.
Top five top five.
Top five top five defenders in the game in the world.
So, uh, hey, you know, it's the off season, which is a regular seasons.
Come around the corner, be You know, you're gonna have some gripes with me because a top five list with the amount of great defenders in the world.
Yeah, we're not going agree.
But number five on my list is Mata Mel's from Byron Munich, obviously at his round with Dorfman as, well, just a one of the top defenders.
Whenever you talk about the best defenders in the game, he's always on everybody's list and rightfully so.
A number of Bundesliga titles, I believe.
Four, um, was also a part of the World Cup team that won it all for Germany in 2014.
Played a big role in that.
So he makes my list at number five.
Number four Giorgio Chiellini.
Um, you vent this now he is easily one of the older men on the list, if not the oldest.
But the thing about Shalini that really sparks my interest and gets my attention is the fact that he's got this.
Um, he's a guy that AA is a menace in the film room Knows what his opponents are going to do before they even step on the pitch.
Um, young guys look up to I mean, look, he's been around on once again.
The top defenders list for everybody forever because of one reason.
One reason only he is that good.
So he needs to make my list number three on my list.
And this is where we're gonna get a little dicey, but drub pinkeye from Barcelona.
Okay, You know what? He's gonna d'oh.
Um, you know, when you think about Barcelona, you think about the offense, think about the guys at the top.
But at the back end, you know, you need players to step up and make plays and pick a is always there doing that.
Um I mean, look, everything time we've seen Barcelona play and have success, chances are you're going to hear his name a few times.
He is a tremendous defender, number two on my list, and this is going to get a little people upset.
But Sergio Ramos, I love the way Sergio plays the game.
I love the way that.
Ah, offensive players are scared to go up against him.
They know that something is going to happen.
Look what happened in that Champions League final versus Liverpool two years ago versus Masala when he came down on his shoulder, which was fine and clean to me.
But to a lot of people out there, they said on our story.
Sergio Ramos plays well.
He plays tough, hard as nails, and I like a guy that's in your head before you could even step on the pitch and you think about the great defender's that they have Marcello on that team to go down the list of of, Ah, Real Madrid's players and and Sergio Ramos is one of the top and number one on my list.
Virgil Van Dyke.
It's not even close, right? It's not even close, Um, busted on the scene.
You know, I was just watching an interview with them.
He was talking about when he turned 18 and he got his first contract, and that's when he knew he was going to be a stud stud player.
Ah went to South Hampton.
That's when it really started getting on everybody's radar and of course, to $75,000,000 to go to Liverpool.
I believe it's still the largest sum for a defender.
I believe that is the case.
I'm sure, man, you might pay more than that for somebody.
But what a grab.
And he showed his worth, right? Champions League.
Um, every single time he's out there on that pitch, you hear his name? And he is in a four, sir.
He is a guy you do not want to go up against.
So Virgil is easily number one on my list for top five defenders in the world off, sucker.
