Last week, my Bleacher Report colleague Michael Cummings wrote an article on the 30 Best Footballers Over 30. After reading it, I decided I'd one-up him and profile the 35 best footballers over 35.
I know what you're thinking. This list is either going to be nothing but goalkeepers or full of way-past-it oldies, who are in the last year of their careers.
But take a look at the list, and you'll be surprised. I've only included players who are regularly playing for their respective teams, so backup goalkeepers have been excluded.
After the Top 10, the name recognition does admittedly drop considerably, but that doesn't mean that these guys aren't doing pretty remarkable things, especially given their age.
Let me know if there's anyone who you think I missed or could be considered for this list!
Also, as a minor note, many of the players on this list are actually 35. Just as most under-21 lists include 21-year-olds and over-30 lists include 30-year-olds, it only made sense to include 35-year-olds on this list. Otherwise I'd have had to cut the size of this list in half!
