Some players are just born to be in the limelight. Such is the radiance of the exposure they face that even their breaths are something that doesn’t go unseen by people. The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi are always up there among them.

However, there are certain other players who don’t get as much recognition as they should be. They work their socks off, but don’t often get the praise that they deserve. In this article, however, we are looking to change all that.

Here are the top 10 most underrated footballers in the world right now…

#10 Fernandinho

Burnley v Manchester City - Premier League
City's underrated midfield maestro

Manchester City are the most in-form team in the Premier League right now. Their attack is lauded for its brilliant precision while their defence is also honoured for its sturdiness. The likes of David Silva, Nicolas Otamendi, Kyle Walker, Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero are heavily praised for their abilities.

But someone among them isn't talked of in the same wavelength and that is the Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho.

Ever since joining the Citizens from Shakhtar Donetsk, he has been a rock in front of the defence while also providing the attack with crisp and quick passes. His all-round greatness makes him an essential cog in the City line-up.

And yet, he has been one of the last players people talk about.
