The defender is the outfield player whose primary role is to prevent the opposition from attacking. In general, defenders must stop opposing players, particularly the strikers, from scoring and bring the ball out from their penalty area. You will have to be a good tackler and strong in the air.
Boots for Defence
The Nike Tiempo Legend 8 is worn by the likes of defensive masters within La Liga Gerard Pique & Sergio Ramos. The Tiempo is one of the most famous ranges as they have been active since 1994. The boot is ideal for defenders as it provides that extra protection and support through its K-leather upper thus making the boot perfect for tackling and kicking making it one of the best silos for defenders in the market today.
The adidas Predator 19 range is represented by arguably one of the best centre backs in the game, Bayern Munich player Mats Hummels who can tackle, head, and pass. Modern day full backs also prefer adidas in the form of their X range, both the X18+ & 18.1, for example Marcelo, Azpilicueta, and Christensen.
The Puma ONE is a popular boot for defenders which is headlined by the likes of traditionalists Giorgio Chiellini and Diego Godin, alongside speed demon Hector Bellerin.
