So I googled "best defender in history" to read some lists, I like lists.

Nesta is so criminally underrated by non Milan fans. I was shocked.

Nesta is the best CB in history of football.

prime rooney destroyed prime nesta lol. That's the perspective of some english pundits lmao. The only reason neta struggled that year was due to injury woes and cause we had leotardo as coach. That team was a mayhem, we fucking used ambrosini alongside nesta in some games. I doubt rooney could have done anything against allegri's milan with a post prime nest and a prime silva and i love rooney btw.
Anyone that says nesta isn't a top 5 greatest Cb of all time then he/she is ******ed and should quit watching football.

No one said anything about destroying him .... Just saying it wasn't the best pic to use considering shrek banged in 6 goals past us. Lets not forget... he also scored past us in the Carlo era.

Agree. Archetypical. Perfect CB.

We ended that game with a formation of:

Abbiati; Flamini, Silva, Ambrosini, Jankulovski; Beckham, Pirlo, Seedorf; Huntelaar, Inzaghi, Ronaldinho.

If that's not the most overly attacking team ever then I haven't been watching.

Nesta is the best CB in history of football.
The funny thing is most of those lists say Ferdinand, Vidic, and Cannavaro were better than him
Nesta was THE BEST of his generation. The only reason he didn't perform well for the Italian NT were injuries. In 2006 he outperformed Cannavaro vs. Ghana and USA before he went down against Czech Republic. I have no doubt had he stayed injury free; he would have deserved the Balon d'Or over Cannavaro.

Now for being the best CB of all time I think Nesta is a rank below Baresi and Beckenbauer respectively. Nesta is not as good defensively as Baresi and not as good an organizer and distributor as Beckenbauer.

The title of best CB ever comes down to preferences just like the Pele/Maradona debate and I pick Baresi. Baresi was a brilliant leader, one of the best readers of the game, and in his prime he was untouchable when it comes to defense. Not even Gaetano Scirea comes close to him in defending. On the other hand, Beckenbauer is really overrated when it comes to defense because people make it seem as if he was some superhuman who was impeccable in defending AND attacking. Beckenbauer was better in attacking but not Baresi's equal when it comes to defending. Plus we see how great of a leader/teacher Franco was thanks to Maldini

Sorry for the long response I just thought it was an interesting subject.

you can say that nesta was the best pure cb, where as baresi and beckenbaur were sweepers.

All those lists I read, almost all stated that Beckenbauer is the best CB in history. Beckenbauer himself said that he thinks Nesta is the best CB in history, can't find the link, but I'm sure he said that because I remember the boner I got.

I guess (sadly) you have to be a real defense connoisseur (*tags Sven*) to see what a Nesta is.

It's simples with Nesta really. He's a CB. And thou shall not pass.

Brute force... and at the same time so elegant and magnificent.

Just look at Thiago Silva with and without a Nesta beside him. Light years of difference.

One thing I feel is criminally understated when talking about Nesta - he was consistently good with different CB partners.
