My Top Ten

My Top Ten: Adam Mullan

COLERAINE defender Adam Mullan has shortlisted his top ten favourite footballers of all time…

Over the next few months, will be asking current first-team stars to narrow down ten players and explain the reasons for their inclusion.

With Mullan impressing in the heart of the back four this season, it should come as no surprise that he picked a centre-half as his number one pick.

10 – Roberto Carlos

Wand of a left foot, decent defender and his free-kicks were ridiculous.

9 – Ronaldinho

Played football as if he was playing with his mates on the street.

8 – Andrea Pirlo

Another player I enjoyed watching. He never broke sweat and 9 times out if 10 he made the right decision.

7 – Lionel Messi

Makes something out of nothing, skips by defenders as if they aren’t even there.

6 – Roy Keane

He put the fear into the opposition and loved a tackle.

5 – Zinedine Zidane

Had it all and was just a joy to watch.

4 – Nemanja Vidic

Solid as a rock and put his body on the line.

3 – Paul Scholes

United legend, controlled the game and scored important goals.

2 – Cristiano Ronaldo


1 – Rio Ferdinand

Calm on the ball and a top defender.
