In this article I will be sharing my views on footballs best traditional defensive midfielders.
What I mean by this is I will be choosing the players who are very disciplined and who's main strengths are tacking, interceptions etc.
Many people class the likes of Xabi Alonso and Andrea Pirlo to be the best 'CDM' players but they are deep lying play-makers, so I hope you understand why they are not in my list.
