If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! That’s certainly the case with some of the older figures still playing the beautiful game.
Despite an increase in the amount of younger players being given chances at the top level, the greatest names in the game are older than 30, and some of them may surprise you!
Some have been around for years, illustrating that loyalty is still alive and well in football. One of these names includes Roma’s Francesco Totti, who has been at the club since 1992!
Manchester United are one of the other European giants still regularly featuring older figures, with club captain Wayne Rooney included in the list.
In the case of the England international, his time at the top level could be coming to an end, with his club form desperately struggling so far this campaign.
