As the famous Brazilian centre defender that Dante undoubtedly took his style from, Lucio comes into this list as the solid vice-captain of what feels like only yesterday's great Bayern side. With three consecutive Bundesliga titles under his watch, this defender is easily one of the club's best ever.
19. Ze Roberto
In a specific four-year stint, the Brazilian box-to-box midfielder Ze Roberto was quite simply one of the best players in the world. With 10 separate trophies with Bayern over his two stints at the club—first as a prevailing attacking midfielder and then as a defensive partner to Mark Van Bommel—we add another samba star to our list.
18. Bixente Lizarazu
A player who will undoubtedly go down as the last great left-back before David Alaba conquered all before him, Bixente Lizarazu comes in at 18th as one of the best full-backs ever to play for the Bavarian club. In his time at the club, he too won 10 domestic trophies as well as the 2001 Champions League.
17. Giovane Elber
Within six years at Bayern Munich, Giovane Elber had scored 138 goals, won four Bundesliga titles, three DFB Pokal Cups and one Champions League trophy in 2001. To put it quite simply, he was one of Bayern's greatest-ever modern strikers.
16. Franck Ribery
Franck Ribery is a forward who will undoubtedly finisher higher on this list before he chooses to hang up his boots, but at this point he still must contend with sitting outside the top 15. A modern star who has only to look up to the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo when compared to any other player across the world, Ribery is a Bayern great in the making.
