La Liga proved this season that it is loaded with world class footballers. Well beyond the Big Two teams, some of the best players in the world play in Spain.
Players like Ronaldo and Messi were already household names, but now guys like Santi Cazorla and Jesus Navas are getting more respect and recognition.
What about future generations? Is La Liga a league full of aging stars or is there sufficient young talent to keep us excited about the league going forward?
I decided to continue my La Liga Season Review by looking at some of the best under-21 stars in the league. With the Olympics coming up this summer, many of these stars will be the center of attention in London.
There were countless young stars in Spain this season so I am sure many of you will be able to point out some stars I missed. Also, feel free to let me know which players you think are ranked out of order.
The players' current level of development and their performances this season will be the main base for the rankings.
However, since these are all young stars, potential will be a major factor as well.
Read on to see the 10 best U-21 players in La Liga.
Note: To qualify for this list, players must have been born after July 31, 1990.
