The International Centre for Sports Studies has published a study of Europe's best midfielders. Blaise Matuidi is surprisingly well placed!
In the weekly newsletter published Monday by the Soccer Observatory, we can discover the list of the best defensive midfielders in Europe, as well as the most efficient torchbearers.
If the first ranking is dominated by two Bavarian - Arturo Vidal and Xabi Alonso – we can notice the presence of Lassana Diarra and N'Golo Kanté, respectively seventh and eighth best defensive midfielders in Europe. Sergio Busquets is only ninth, three places behind Mounir Obbadi (yes that’s right, the player of LOSC)!
As for torchbearers, it’s Moussa Dembélé that turns out to be the Padre of the Soccer Game. After him we can see Blaise Matuidi who continues to surprise the world with his crazy progress. The French is in front of Yaya Toure, Paul Pogba, Toni Kroos and even Andres Iniesta. WAOW !
“Getting up on a Monday morning to learn that "Matuidi is one of the best torchbearers in Europe" is insulting.’’ -Lino Treize
“Matuidi best torchbearer in the world? Nah that’s exaggerated. Blaisou we like you but you're a crook’’-Salam T Ki
‘‘Perks of having immunity.’’-Mathieu Faure
‘’Matuidi is the greatest crook of all time in all sectors of activity. Next to him Madoff is Abbé Pierre.”-Blue&RedMan
