Most Versatile Players in World Football

The ability to play in multiple positions is one of the most valuable traits a footballer can possess, yet so few players can actually profess to being a Jack-of-all-trades, never mind a master of some.

Here, we'll take a look at some of those players who some might say don't truly have a favoured role as a result of their malleability, able to play in two, three or in some cases even more areas of the pitch and still maintain a consistently high standard in each.

For the record, we're talking more than simply a winger who, for example can play off one wing but is just as capable cutting in from an opposite flank. Instead, we're looking for the real McCoys whom a manager can field in completely different, specialist positions but feel secure in knowing nothing shall be sacrificed as a result.

It goes without saying that the higher the level of football those included play, the more praise they'll receive for doing what they do.

Without much more delay, read on for a breakdown of the world's most versatile players.
