Infographic: Top 5 Young Centre Backs

Major European clubs have all been adopting an approach of deploying young players in their first-team squads on a regular basis. While this was common for attacking positions, clubs opted to play with an experience back-bone. This position, though, has evolved as well with the biggest sides in Europe opting to give younger & more dynamic players an opportunity. It’s an experiment that has largely succeeded and has continued to encourage other managers to alter their pragmatism as well.

Here we compile a list of the Top 5 Young Centre Backs in World Football. To maintain some sort of standard and consistency, this list includes one centre-back from each of Europe’s top divisions.

The stats for this infograph have been supplied by @TypicalBlueMoon. The infograph itself has been made by @RazimRefai
