    What individual mistakes? Humor me. Man is probably the least mistake prone defender in football, especially compared to CB’s that are allegedly as good or better like Ramos or Pique.

    I still personally think he's the best defender in the world. Granted at the World Cup in '14 he did a terrible job of mentally leading at crucial moments, but he is always first class when he plays.

    This is funny because everybody forget that he was not playing during their semi-finals vs Germany.

    NO POLITICS IN FOOTBALL !

    I think they are referring to him crying about having to take a penalty.

    Iím well aware of that and the defence crumbled without him. Iím referring to the crying and penalty shootout incident.

    Who is better? Hardly has to risk tackles because his positional and spacial awareness are so strong.

    Overrated as hell, top defender but still overrated as hell, I've said this since he was in Italy, Everytime I would see him play a big game in the CL he would look meh.

    Technically he is one of the best in the world, but that alone is not enough to be the best defender in the world. For me, Hummels is a step above him for several reasons.

    Miranda, for example, who is a much more limited defender, has already done much more in Europe than TS. (One of the biggest bizarre things I've ever seen in life was Scolari not having summoned him to the 2014 World Cup at the height of his career.) I am very happy that he is currently play with Tite and, unless he is injured, will continue playing. TS is a good reserve for the pair Marquinhos-Miranda.

    Before they criticize me or call me crazy, that's just my opinion. Tite has a great merit to form excellent defenses and any minimally decent defender plays very well with this tactical scheme (Cof cof Marquinhos)

    Best defender in the world...



    Oh and one of the worst leaders I have ever seen. Horrendous captain.

    No surprise every team he captains sinks like the Titanic.

    Soft as baby lotion.

    Guess who captained them to blowing a 4-0 lead? And who didn't play when they actually got that 4-0 lead?

    Pique >>>> him

    Ramos too.

    And I'm not even going to name that other CB on our team (aka the actual best CB in the world) because that'd just be unfair.

    So fucking overrated.

    Maybe he might have been able to live up to the hype if he didn't go to Ligue 1.

    Yes, he was fantastic in Milan, almost immediately after moving there too. It's too bad be ruined his career a few seasons later.
    Pwn'ing no0bs since 1985.
