RedrebelIt will be a sad moment when he retires. Simply the best!
Robert O'CarlosNever a truer word ...
A phenomenally great player, who had the love and loyalty to spend his entire career at one club. Arguably the greatest left back football has seen. Would surely push Carlos for a place in anyone's all time XI. Despite my nick here, I'd choose Maldini every time.
Took me ages to work out he was naturally right sided too.
RedrebelHe was more a center-back than a full-back though.
Robert O'CarlosVery true. It was only the fact he had Costacurta and Baresi ahead of him that meant he 'make do' at left back. But never, as you say, a modern day marauding full back like a Zambrotta or a Roberto Carlos.
He'll always be remembered as a left back, but I agree that he always looked like a centre back playing that position.
RedrebelI disagree. I think he will be remembered as a center-back.
Robert O'CarlosOkay, maybe we should just stick to 'defender'. Heh heh.
