Got to be Paolo Maldini for overall consistency and playing at the top level surely?
Paolo Maldini is a very fine player. Not to mention loyal. I would also like to throw in Claudio Gentile who were one of the few defenders who managed to man-mark Diego Maradona out of a match.
While I also rate Maldini he started his career alongside the immaculate Franco Baresi at Milan. Baresi controlled the team that was then the best in the world from his centre back position- wonderful reading of the game, superb passing and great pace. Simply, a genius
There are plenty of great defenders. I have to throw a few names in though..... Bobby Moore? Lothar Matthaus? Franco Baresi? Franz Beckenbauer?
It should be remembered that Maldini never won a World Cup, that is a big gap in his trophy cabinet.
