who do u guys think is the most versatile defender, meaning a defender that can play anywhere, be it on the sides or center

i think it would have to be Maldini
same with Puyol and Heinze (before he was injured)

Ginaluca Zambrotta is the most versatile defender on the planet and has been for at least 5 or 6 years running. he can play RB/LB which he is the best at without a doubt, or he can play CB if need be.

i dont know if zambrotta could play CB or Cannavaro could play WB
but do the names Maldini and Thuram ring a bell
they both can play RB or LB bc of their experience, and can play CB
and none of u can deny the fact

Zambrotta for LB/RB, or in the midfield.

Maldini, Puyol and Thuram for anywhere on defence.

Marquez is versitile aswell. If you watched the WC he played all over the place for Mexico.

Sergio Ramos plays CB at Madrid, RB for Spain.

Aren't you all forgetting a certain frenchman by the name of William Gallas? This guy is the second best left back in the EPL, and that's not even his prefered role. He is also a very competent center back or right back as well. Also, Toure is extremely versitile in the Arsenal defense.
God damn brewery!!!
