    Alessandro Nesta



    Date of birth: 19.03.76 (age 35)
    Height: 1.87 m (6 ft 1 1⁄2 in)
    Position: Centre back

    Can't believe out of all the defenders out there Nesta didn't have his own thread yet. Don't think he needs much of introduction...

    Nesta apparently still has it in him. The way he reads the game and positions himself is still amazing, despite of his lack of pace. Some of his tackles last night were absolutely stunning and SO so perfectly timed.

    Class act.

    We played a game that were to his strengths.

    His tackles were just so fantastic.

    Always said he was the better defender than Cannavaro and Maldini, maybe a few more of you can see why now.

    Always been a huge fan of Nesta, tho.

    He was one of the best defenders, if not the best out there in his prime.

    I still think he was better for Lazio than he ever was for Milan but yeah...definitely a class act and even at 35 one of the very best out there.

    Not that Messi had a bad game but Barca played way too relaxed. If not, then the legend and his brazilian partner were going to be ripped apart.
    There is a beast in man that should be exercised, not exorcised!
