Most Versatile Players in World Football

Michael CummingsWorld Football Lead WriterDecember 12, 2012

In general, modern footballers are specialists, highly-skilled experts of a single position.

That is, they usually are.

Sometimes, though, some footballers play several roles for their team. When they do, they provide immense value to their teams and—not coincidentally—often become indispensible to their managers.

In this clip, B/R world football lead writers Michael Cummings and Will Tidey discuss some of the most versatile players in the world. Along the way, they start in Italy with Daniele De Rossi and end up in Brazil with a famous up-and-coming starlet.
