Jordi Alba

Jordi Alba, FC Barcelona’s wing-back defender has a peculiar way in the defensive line up where he throws himself into the teams attack and what can look like a fine line between a hard-core tackle and a genuine challenge on the striker manages to get away with contacting the ball first even if the challenge is made from behind.

The above is a condition if he allows the defender to make it ahead of him that is.
Little wonder why he has been in the starting XI under Luis Enrique’s reign at FC Barcelona and under so many others even till date.

Alba is one of the less known more strong contender’s who has been in the eyes of many managers but failed to make a shift to another team.
