Most Prolific Tacklers in European Football

Will Tidey@willtideySenior Manager, GlobalNovember 28, 2012

Leaning heavily on stats provided by our friends at whoscored.com, here are the top five most prolific tacklers in Europe’s top leagues this season.

We start the countdown with Hugo Mallo, a Spanish under-21 international who plays for Celta Vigo in La Liga.

At four is Fagner, who joined German side Wolfsburg from Vasco de Gama in his native Brazil this summer.

Next up is Javi Lopez of Espanyol, followed by the hugely impressive Arturo Vidal, who played a big part in Juventus’ run to the Serie A title last season.

To find out who’s top of the list, you’ll have to watch the clip.
