Right off the back of Doon's thread.

Ricardo Carvalho

It feels like until recently, Benzema didn't get the credit he deserved. Similarly prime Toni Kroos was excellent. No coincidence they were part of one of the most successful sides of modern times.

This is pretty much gonna end up being lists of players generally revered by fans of the clubs they played for, but not so much outside those clubs. One that always stood out for me was Mijatovic at Madrid. There was a media wankathon around Raul being a class player who was Spanish and played for Madrid, you could understand that. But Mijatovic was class in his own right.

The biggest one in my lifetime for me - Rui Costa. Absolutely class player who never got anywhere near enough credit imo. 

God he was so good. Idolized him as a kid
