Barcelona defender Dani Alves has named three of the best right-backs in the modern game.
The Barcelona legend is regarded as one of the best, if not the best, in his position following success at the Catalan club.
Speaking during an interview with FourFourTwo the Brazilian singled out Chelsea’s Reece James, PSG’s Achraf Hakimi, and Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold as his favourite players in the position currently.
“I admire Trent Alexander-Arnold very much,” Alves told FourFourTwo. “He’s a fantastic footballer – this guy has got world-class skills.
“I also like to watch Reece James and Achraf Hakimi.
“They mix strength with technique and are also great players.
“The three of them obviously have different characteristics and styles, but they all know how to do the job.”
The three young players have been impressive for their respective clubs, with the Liverpool and Chelsea stars taking the Premie league by storm.
Trent has scored two goals and assisted 16 in all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s side, while Jame has six goals and seven assists to his name this season.
