Top 5 goalscoring defenders of all time
#4 Laurent Blanc - 153 goals
Laurent Blanc is still a famous name in the footballing world today. Nicknamed "Le President" by the fans during his stint at Marseille as a player, Blanc was one of the best defenders of his generation. Most recently, he was the manager for Paris Saint-Germain, and he has managed the French national team too.
A major offensive threat, Blanc scored 153 goals in his career - he holds the unique distinction of being the first player to score a golden goal in World Cup history. Blanc started his career as an attacking midfielder before dropping back to play as a sweeper.
With many of his goals coming from set-pieces, Blanc still holds the record for being the all-time top scorer at Montpellier, the club he made his debut with. In eight years, he scored 80 goals for the club.
He has also netted 16 goals for France and remains one of the greatest ever at scoring as a defender.
