The Top 10 Left-Backs In The World Right Now Have Been Ranked

The Top 10 Left-Backs In The World Right Now Have Been Ranked

Barcelona star Jordi Alba has been crowned the world's best left-back ahead of Liverpool ace Andy Robertson.

Alba, 31, was a former Barca youth academy product who was released in 2005 and spent three years playing for Valencia's senior team.

But Barcelona brought the Spanish left-back back to the Camp Nou in 2012 in a deal worth £11.2m.

Alba has since established himself as an integral member of the Barcelona squad and is widely praised for his versatility in defending and attacking.

The Daily Star ranked the Spain international top of the pile, saying he is a "truly modern full-back" and a "true all-rounder."

According to the newspaper, Alba has established himself as a "formidable defender and a brilliant option in the final third."

That's not to mention The Daily Star pointing to the former Valencia star's trophy success both at club level and on the international stage.
