- Real Madrid
One of the best CBs I have seen in my life. Strong in the air, quick, powerful. Very underrated, partly because of that Casquero action and the odd short-circuit mainly before Ancelotti was named coach.Madrid going from 2008 to 2020 conceding more goals than Barcelona in every single league season is definitely a bad look even taking into account how attacking they were.
How do people rate Pepe by the way? I think at his best he was better than Varane and there were quite a few seasons where he outperformed Ramos but it feels like he won't remembered anywhere near as much. He was the starter for both the 2014 and 2016 Champions Leagues while Varane was the starter for 2017 and 2018.
