Top 5 / Top 10

Defending is undoubtedly one of the lost arts in football, in modern football a defender is expected to start moves as much as defend his own six-yard box. However, there are those few who somehow manage to do them both (I know right?).

Underrated is probably the most qualitative word in the dictionary, to make a list of underrated players a huge part of the equation depends on the man who compiles the list (in this case, it’s me), so if you have an issue with the list comment below and I will happily ignore them.

So without further ado

#5 Kamil Glik

With the performances of the Monaco team in the Champions League and in the Ligue 1, it is hard to imagine that a player didn’t get his due, but Kamil Glik is that player. After his brilliant performances in the Euros for Poland, the 29-year-old was signed for the Ligue 1 leaders and how the decision been vindicated.

Brilliant on the ball, he has improved his aerial game to the extent that forwards a wary of challenging for the aerial balls. He is one of those players who hardly goes into the tackle, and still gets the job done.

Add to that the 7 goals and 1 assist to the list, and we have ourselves one of the best central defenders in Europe at the moment.
