Sergio Ramos is among the most decorated defenders in world football. The prolific centre-back is one of the best goal-scoring defenders in the history of the game. With over 80 goals to his name and counting, he is already in the top 15 of Real Madrid's all-time goalscorer list which is an unreal achievement for a central defender.

Ramos is most feared in the added minutes of the game as in these minutes, he has often stepped up for the Los Blancos when they needed it the most. The Spanish captain has won four Champions league with Real Madrid and the glorified World Cup in 2010 with Spain. He is his nation's most capped player, second only to Iker Casillas.

#4 Left back - Marcelo

Seasons - 2009-2018

Ronaldo and Marcelo made a magnificent duo at the left flank of the Los Blancos as their unwithering friendship off the field boosted their chemistry on the field. Marcelo has established himself as one of the best left-back in the world. The curly haired Brazilian has always owned the flank like it's his home. No other defender in the world has come even close to the attacking prowess the left-back has shown in almost every game he has played.

Many think that he has eclipsed ex Los Blancos legend Roberto Carlos, who immortalized himself in that position. The Brazilian has lifted a total of twenty trophies with Real Madrid including four Champions league. He won the 2013 Confederations Cup with his national side.


#5 Right back - Gary Neville

Gary Neville was a prominent and loyal right-back who played at Manchester United for 19 years. The Englishman was a part of the famous class of '92 which was a group of talented youngsters that went on to dominate English football for a major chunk of the decade. Apart from Neville, the group included popular names such as Paul Scholes, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and Phil Neville.

The English talisman's bursting pace, passing skills, crossing ability and intelligent reading of the game set him apart as one of the best right-back of his generation. He is a highly decorated player with a cabinet full of 20 trophies which included eight Premiere League titles and two Champions League titles.
