Right-back – Philipp Lahm
Philipp Lahm is captain of the all-conquering Bayern Munich side of 2013. And not only does he lead the team superbly, but he's also a key cog in the machine.
Under Jupp Heynckes, he placed in the top five for most Bundesliga assists last season - from right-back.
And this term, under new boss Pep Guardiola, he's been deployed in central defensive midfield - so highly does Guardiola rate his defensive instincts and quality on the ball.
