Top 10: Stars who should be in their prime (1)

Published Add your comment

Real Madrid phenomenon Cristiano Ronaldo picked up the Ballon d'Or last month and is currently just ahead of Lionel Messi in the perennial battle to be the world's best player, but at 29 conventional wisdom would have the Portuguese star as being just beyond his absolute best.

Managers trawling the transfer market would label a player as in his prime between the ages of 24 and 28, despite the fantastic efforts of golden oldies like Andrea Pirlo to render than natural conclusion redundant.

With that in mind GMS has identified 10 stars who we believe should be in their very best form judging by age, ability and surroundings, which means just for once Ronaldo will have to take a back seat.

Take a look at our list of stars have no excuses for not being in their prime and feel free to comment with your alternative suggestions below.
