Brazilian Legend Cafu Picks His Top Three Right-Backs In The World

Brazilian legend Cafu has named the three players who he believes are the three best right-backs in the world.

The 48-year-old former defender achieved major success with his national team, making the most appearances for Brazil and winning the World Cup in 1994 and 2002.


Now, the former AC Milan and Roma star has revealed his top three choices for right-back.

"At the moment, Daniel Alves, Dani Carvajal and Danilo are, in my opinion, the best right-back players," he told the Daily Mirror.

"Among them, Daniel Alves is probably the one with the style of play most similar to mine."

It does mean that he has overlooked Manchester City's Kyle Walker, who many would believe is the best right-back in the Premier League (if not the world). That's not to mention Bayern Munich's Joshua Kimmich and Arsenal's Héctor Bellerín.

Considering that Cafu had the opportunity to play alongside several legends during his time, he also chose the best footballer he played with in his career.

"There are many but if I had to pick one, it would be Ronaldinho Gaucho," he said.

The World Cup winner was also asked about his best opponent, with him picking one player that many fans would probably agree with.

"Zinedine Zidane. He was absolutely fantastic," he explained.

Who is the best right-back in the world?
