From the user comme on the BigSoccer forum: http://www.bigsoccer.com/threads/the-10 ... e.1392586/

Note that this list includes pretty much any midfielder that isn't a winger or attacking midfielder, so most central midfielders are included in this list even if they aren't strictly defensive players.

Imagine thinking Andrade, Bozsik, Neeskens, Falcão, Varela, Blanchflower and Monti to be better than Redondo.

And Deschamps to be below those + Pesek, Rattín, Mackay, Pluskal, Germano (a centerback), Meiklejohn, Meszöly (a centerback), Voronin and Bonhof.
