Let us take a look at the list of Top 10 Football Midfielders 2016.

A very old proverb goes somewhat like this, “Wine gets better with age”. The thing is same for Andrea Pirlo. Pirlo’s age has done little to reduce his abilities, as he can change the game with a sublime pass, stunning free kick or impeccably timed challenge. His deep lying play making ability and the way in which he controls the game has inspired a generation of players, and he will be sorely missed by the entire football world once he hangs up his cleats.
