Once, Serie A had the strongest defenders in the world

When you think of Italian football, of course the names of great strikers are many. But so are the names of Italian and foreign defenders playing in Serie A.

The 2001-02 season is particularly noticeable, as it seems that the strongest and most spectacular defenders of the time had come together.Do You Remember All?

Juventus (Champions). “The old lady” won the title that year thanks to a real blockade in the background. Lilian Thuram and Gigi Buffon were bought from Parma, joining the doubles Paolo Montero – Ciro Ferrara. Who could have scored?

Rome (Second place).Yellow-reds collected a point less than Roma thanks to the fantastic defense that suffered only 24 goals throughout the season. Wall Walter Samuel was definitely important, but right-wing domination by Cafu made the difference that year.

Inter (In third place). Ronaldo, Adriano, Alvaro Recoba and Christian Vieri, all saw only the attackers at Inter. But the stars were not lacking in the background: the “immortal” Javier Zanetti, Ivan Cordoba, Marco Materazzi and Laurent Blanc.

Milan (In fourth place). Class and quality guaranteed. Paolo Maldini and Alessandro Costacurta dominated the field in those years. And as to give any opportunity to strikers, Milan also entered Roque Junior’s field ever .

Lazio (on six positin). Sinisa Mihajlovic also scored goals in addition to “guarding” the left arm. While Alessandro Nesta and Jaap Stam were the real dam for Italian strikers.
