7. Fillipe Luis
The Brazilian Fillipe Luis has been a significant part in Diego Simeones defense. The former blues player has been on top of his game for the most part of his career at Athletico Madrid despite failing to be a consistent starter when he joined Chelsea as he failed to adapt to the English and Chelsea style of play.
The Brazilian defender posses great strength and has been a key part to Athletico Madrid’s success over the years. Besides his strong defensive capabilities Filipe Luis does well in creating passes and moving the ball forward in attacking positions.
