Who are the Best Players in Serie A by Position?
This list must be started with Gianluigi Buffon, Italian goalkeeper legend whose current years don’t stop him to guard Juventus’ goal, and he does it brilliantly. There are some other great goalkeepers in Serie A, like Semir Handanovic, Jose Reina, and Diego Lopez, and it is surely not easy for the attackers to score goals when these guys are standing on their way.
Juventus is able to say they have probably the best players of Serie A when it comes to defense, at least when you look at their names. Likes of Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Barzagli, and Leonardo Bonucci will frighten any opposition. Miranda from inter, Manolas from Roma, and Alex from Milan should also be carefully watched.
Once again, Juventus is the one that dominates. The French Paul Pogba must be considered among the best players of Serie A, and you probably should leave some space before the others come in. On the other hand, Miralem Pjanic, Claudio Marchisio, Radja Nainggolan and Marek Hamsik certainly have something to offer, and they’re also brilliant midfielders to watch.
Napoli has a great asset in the attack with Gonzalo Higuain. Argentinian arrived in Napoli from Spain with the intention to score goals, as well as Mario Mandzukic to Juventus. Colombian Carlos Bacca from Milan can’t be neglected, as well as the experienced Miroslav Klose from Lazio.
Italian clubs love to offer their former players coaching jobs, so we can see Roberto Donadoni, Roberto Mancini and Sinisa Mihajlovic (among others) leading their respective teams from the bench. Still, probably the best coach of Serie A at the moment is Massimiliano Allegri of Juventus, who has previously also led Milan.
We will finish the same way we started – Gianluigi Buffon is probably the captain of all captains in Italian Serie A. Aside from him, Francesco Totti is another legend with its team, and one of the best players of Serie A when it comes to current team captains is also Mauro Icardi of Juventus. Experienced Nicolas Burdisso, Luca Toni, and Antonio Di Natale have also honestly earned the right to be captains of their team.
