The best player of the current World club champion AC Milan Kaka has been named by far the best playmaker in the world by an Institute of football history and statictics. ..
The second place has gone to Kaka's teammate Andrea Pirlo ahead of Leo Messi of Barca and Juan Roman Riquelme .The fifth spot belongs to Ronaldinho. Our Ronaldo is surprisingly 8th considering that he likes to do things on his own ( remember this is playmaker , not player award) rather than conecting the play like the No 10 does. To add something for our friend " Justice" to see I will say that Dinamo's playmaker has been voted at great 16th spot alongside Arsenal's Tomas Rosicky. He is the only player amoung the top 20 I think who comes from outside the top 5 league ( Modric's league is not even amoung the top 10 imo - lol ) So it seems that someone else does think that he's better than Anderson . Imagine what he would have acheived if he'd played for a bigger club Top 10 of "No 10's" - :
1. Kaka (AC Milan, Brazil)
2. Andrea Pirlo (AC Milan, Italia)
3. Lionel Messi (Barcelona, Argentina)
4. Juan Roman Riquelme (Boca Juniors, Argentina)
4. Ronaldinho (Barcelona, Brazil)
6. Steven Gerrard (Liverpool, England)
7. Francesco Fabregas (Arsenal, Spain)
8. Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester Utd., Portugal)
9. Diego (Werder Bremen, Brazil)
10. Robinho (Real Madrid, Brazil).

Anderson plays at the same position as Modric - cm... Thus , by vocation he can be considered as a playmaker as any dmf or cmf or amf ( Kaka) can. Modric outplayed Diego in both matches but it seems that Werders' results have their arguments considering Modric has no one to play with and comes from a poor poor club. To me , to be considered amoung those stars is a win actually. There is no player who comes from outside the top 5 league like Modric ....

Like I said - this is a playmaker, not player award

Definition of a playmaker...

In football, a playmaker is an attacking player who controls the flow of the team's offensive play, and is often involved in passing moves which lead to goals. The term overlaps somewhat with attacking midfielder, but playmakers are not constrained to a single position - creativity is the only true requirement, and good passing ability and tactical awareness help. Because many midfielders have these attributes, they tend to be the playmakers of a team.

I think Rooney could be described as a playmaker but perhaps the people who made this list were only looking at midfield players.

i know what you mean, and i consider rooney as one of the most important players who controls the tempo of our play, but he is mainly regarded as a striker and they had to narrow down the choice;)

Stats from last season : (assists)
Messi has three assists
Pirlo has 7
Kaka and Ronaldinho both have 10

Any guesses on how many Ronaldo has ? Along with his 23 goals, Ronaldo has 20 assists to his name.

Haha, it's funny to noe that as a supporting striker/deep-lying forward, Wayne Rooney is still able to get 25 goals & 16 assists last term! Forza Wazza! :p

Take Messi, Ronaldo, and Robinho off the list. Move Diego above Fabregas. Add Totti in there somewhere (how did they not include Totti?). And why on earth isn't Scholes included in that list?
