GdS - Maicon, Lucio, Samuel and Zanetti, the best defensive line in Serie A since 2000-2001 season
Twenty years of many goals and champions. Serie A since 2000-2001 has given us unique emotions and champions. But what was the strongest defensive line of the new millennium? Difficult to choose because success inevitably weighs a lot on the decision. In the end, it was Inter of 2010 that won the Champions League, Scudetto and Coppa Italia.
Maicon-Lucio-Samuel-Zanetti (Chivu), this treble defensive line was able to win everything in one season and make history. Of course, it was supported by the sacrifice of other departments (Eto’o sometimes played as fullback for Mourinho), but that defense covered Julio Cesar excellently, combining speed, strength, toughness and tons of experience. Not many teams until this day that have an attacker like Maicon because in that Inter team, he had full freedom to move forward as the defense was fully covered by Lucio and Samuel.
