Which team has the best defence in the World?

Posted on | December 21, 2008 | 1 Comment

Like I did previously for the best couple of attackers, I chose  again three teams.



The first one is from Premier League, the Manchester United defence. Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic are forming one of the best couple of central defenders in the World and Patrice Evra is considered also one of the best left defender. The weakest link in the Manchester defence is Gary Neville, the veteran captain. Anyway Manchester already found a replacement for the 33 year old defender, the 18 year old Brazilian, Rafael which already made some good matches  when he had the chance.

The second team is also from Premier League, and it’s Chelsea’s defence. John Terry and Ricardo Carvalho is the best couple of central defenders in my view. Also Ashley Cole is also one of the best left defender in the World. Jose Bosingwa, the right defender already settled in Chelsea squad and his performances are increasing from one game to another.

The last one and in my view the best defence in the World is from Serie A, the Inter defence.

Inter has one of the most balanced teams in the World, with good backups on every post. This is one of the reasons why I have chose them.

Their central defenders, no matter if is Samuel, Cordoba, Chivu, Materazzi or Burdisso, are making the best couple of defenders in Italy. Maicon, the Brazilian defender, is the best right defender in the World. Also Javier Zanetti, the Inter captain can play in that position if that is needed. Maxwell, the left defender is  the best left defender in Serie A and one of the best in the World. Also Chivu can play in that position.

Another reason why I chose them, is the offensive appetit they have shown. Almost all of the defenders scored important goals for Inter. The best example here is this weekend victory against Siena 2-1, where both goals were scored by Maicon.

    Bosingwa is fast becoming the best right-back in the Premier League. He is outstanding going forward and once he sharpens his defensive abilities he will be one of the best in the world.

    He has certainly solved Chelsea’s right-back problems.
