MF: Xavi (Barcelona 1998-present)
One World Cup, two European Championships, six La Liga titles and three Champions League victories are all testament to the wonder of Xavi. The midfielder epitomises Barca's tiki-taka style and is still an important cog in their system 15 years after his debut.
MF: Zinedine Zidane (Real Madrid 2001-06)
The Frenchman was one of the symbols of Madrid's Galacticos, but he won surprisingly little during five years at the Bernabeu. He was always a marvel to watch though, and one league title was backed up with one Champions League success against Bayer Leverkusen—including that goal.
MF: Andres Iniesta (Barcelona 2002-present)
If Andres Iniesta had been born in another era he would have possibly been littered with personal honours. As it is Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo dominate. Still, the 28-year-old will be more than happy with his five league titles, three Champions Leagues, two European Championships and one World Cup—where he scored the winner.
AM: Ronaldinho (Barcelona 2003-08)
On his day Ronaldinho was unplayable, unfortunately his Barcelona career fizzled out to a backdrop of urban myths and disappointment. However when he was good, boy was he good. He scored just shy of 100 goals for the club and helped them to two league titles and one Champions League.
