Time to a look at who are the best players in a defensive midfielders position in Football Manager 2014, and to compare the list with FM 2013.
Same as with FM 2013, we'll take a look at who are the absolute best players at each position respectably in Football Manager 2014. These are the best of the best, cream of the crop.
We based our selection of the best players in the game by their current ability. Higher their current ability, better their rank on our list. We'll show you the top 10 players at each position according to the game.
Latest update or the 13.0 database has been used to determine the players current ability ratings at the start of the game. Once again, these are not our picks, but the game's it self.
Compared to last years edition of Football Manager, FM13, we are happy with one thing more than anything, and that is the fact that lads from Sports Interactive finally recognised Andrea Pirlo as one of the top 10 defensive midfielders in the business. Free kick maestro holds 6th position on the list.
De Rossi is no longer the the best, while last years number two, Sergio Busquets is the new best defensive midfielder in the game. Take a look at the best 10 defensive midfielders below.
#10 John Obi Mikel
#9 Alex Song
#8 Lucas Leiva
#7 Sandro Ranieri Guimarães Cordeiro
#6 Andrea Pirlo
#5 Javier Mascherano
#4 Daniele De Rossi
#3 Xabi Alonso
#2 Javier Martínez
