Andres Iniesta Best Champions League midfielders ever

He’s won this competition an astonishing 4 times, cementing himself as one of the greatest midfielders of all time. The first came in 2006, and that was followed by wins in 2009, 2011 and 2015. There aren’t many players to have graced the game better than Iniesta, his ball control, passing and finishing is sublime, and we are lucky to have seen him play in this era.

Xavi Hernández Best Champions League midfielders ever

Similar achievements to Iniesta, but Xavi tops the list after he lifted the Champions League in his final ever game for Barcelona in 2015. He also won the cup in 2006, 2009 and 2011, and he has a legendary status at the club and in European football. What a career. Xavi has to be the best Champions League midfielder of all time.

Special mentions:

  1. Frank Lampard: He captained Chelsea in the final of the only Champions League they won against Bayern Munich.
  2. Ryan Giggs: A threatening left winger, he captained Manchester United to one Champions League while winning the other one as a young winger.
