How to choose the Best Defenders

In this article we suggest the best defenders for FIFA 20 Career Mode that you should be able to use in your club. Keep in mind that the best players for us may not be for you. It depends on your club, other players, formation, transfer budget, wages budget, play style, preferences, etc…

To select the best players, we have mainly into consideration their stats, potential and age. That’s why a few old players are not in this list. Someone who will not be playing for more than two seasons in our club is not such a good buy as someone who will play for five or six seasons.

In our website we suggest defenders of three categories:

1 Best of the Best
Ideal for unlimited wallets or for who wants the best.

 
2 Free Agents
Decent defenders that you can find for free or ending their contracts.
 
3 Best Young
Under 23 defenders with great growth. Potential future top players.

 

The list of best defenders will be published here in the coming days.

02 KALIDOU KOULIBALY
Nationality: Senegal 🇸🇳
Club (first season): Napoli
Rating: 89
Potential (1): 91
Age: 28
Value: €63M
Wage: €150K

In this list, we have some young players who will be the best defenders in a few years. Older CBs like Sergio Ramos and Chiellini have no place in our choices. Koulibaly is in the middle of these two groups. It’s a solid centre-back, who play better than the young stars and is younger than the old experienced players.
