He signed a new contract in 2008, becoming the highest paid Premier League footballer at that time, and scored in his first Champions League Final that same year. He won the FA Cup for the second time in 2009, scoring the winning goal in the final. On 23 December 2009, he was named the Premier League’s Player of the decade by official statistics.In the 2009-10 season Lampard won the Premier League title and FA Cup (domestic cup double) also he had his best prolific season with Chelsea scoring 22 league goals and 17 league assists.

Andrés Iniesta is a Spanish football midfielder who currently plays for Spanish La Liga club FC Barcelona. His willingness to play anywhere on the pitch, coupled with a natural humility, has earned him the sobriquet El Ilusionista (The Dreamer), El Cerebro (The Brain), El Caballero Pálido (The Pale Knight)and most recently Don Andrés from the Spanish press. After the 2009 UEFA Champions League Final, Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney stated that he believed the midfielder to be the best player in the world. His current contract with Barcelona runs until 2015.

He is also, as of 22 May 2010, the most decorated African player of all time. Along with Clarence Seedorf  he is one of only two players to win the UEFA Champions League with three separate teams, with Real Madrid in 2000 (though only playing three games), twice with FC Barcelona in 2006 and 2009 and once with Internazionale in 2010.

Ronaldo currently holds the distinction of being the most expensive player in football history after being transferred from Manchester United to Real Madrid in a transfer deal worth £80 million (€94m, US$132m). In addition, his contract with Real Madrid, in which he is to be paid £11 million per year over the following six years, makes him the highest paid football player in the world.

Ronaldo began his career as a youth player for Andorinha, where he played for two years, then moved to Nacional. In 1997, he made a move to Portuguese giants Sporting CP. Ronaldo’s precocious talent caught the attention of Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson and he signed the 18-year-old for £12.24 million in 2003. The following season, Ronaldo won his first club honour, the FA Cup, and reached the Euro 2004 final with Portugal, in which tournament he scored his first international goal.

In 2008, Ronaldo won the Champions League with United, and was named player of the tournament. He was named the FIFPro World Player of the Year and the FIFA World Player of the Year, in addition to becoming Manchester United’s first Ballon d’Or winner in 40 years.Three-time Ballon d’Or winner Johan Cruyff said in an interview on 2 April 2008, “Ronaldo is better than George Best and Denis Law, who were two brilliant and great players in the history of United.

 

 

#1 – Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi
Lionel Messi

Messi is considered one of the best football players of his generationand frequently cited as the world’s best contemporary player, Messi received several Ballon d’Or and FIFA World Player of the Year nominations by the age of 21 and won both by the age of 22. His playing style and ability have drawn comparisons to Diego Maradona, who himself declared Messi his “successor”.

Messi began playing football at a young age and his potential was quickly identified by Barcelona. He left Rosario-based Newell’s Old Boys youth team in 2000 and moved with his family to Europe, as Barcelona offered treatment for his growth hormone deficiency. Making his debut in the 2004–05 season, he broke his team record for the youngest footballer to score a league goal. Major honours soon followed as Barcelona won La Liga in Messi’s debut season, and won a double of the league and Champions League in 2006. His breakthrough season was in the 2006–07 season; he became a first team regular, scoring a hat-trick in El Clásico and finishing with 14 goals in 26 league games. Perhaps his most successful season was the 2008–09 season, in which Messi scored 38 goals to play an integral part in a treble-winning campaign. In the following 2009–10 campaign, Messi scored 47 goals in all competitions, equalling Ronaldo’s record total for Barcelona. Messi was the top scorer of the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship with six goals, including two in the final game. Shortly thereafter, he became an established member of Argentina’s senior international team.

I have seen many of these self proclaimed best footballer list and many of them include players that should never make it in the top players list of their own country let alone in the world. Players should be rated by their achievements, football prouess, contribution to the team, number of goals, ..etc, meaning objective ways to rate players and not the fact that you are a fan of the player or the team they play for . Here is a guide and an example. Numbers don’t tel lies and the example is a player like Pele. He was was… Read more »

Lionel Messi is way superior to C. Ronaldo. In fact I have never really understood why the media gives C. Ronaldo so much coverage. There are so many better players than this “Diving – Give me a free kick or a penalty – silly excuse for a professional footballer”
Players like Eto have more achievements but they are down played – why is Ibrahimovic and Gerrard ranked ahead of him ? Even C. Ronaldo is unlikely to get where he is ……

Where’s sneijder, david villa and why are iniesta and xavi so low down? And for the rest of you, chicarito is good, very good, but he’s not in the top 10 best in the world. At the moment he’s probably hovering around 30ish.

This is terrible. Torres as number 10? Torres is doing awful at Chelsea. Also, where is Gareth Bale? Player of the year? Lastly, one more fault, Kaka has been injured for most of the year, and he hasn’t been doing well recently… and you also need to add hernandez.
