Alexander Mostovoi
Club:Celta Vigo
Position:Midfielder

In recent months Alexander Mostovoi, for so long the flair player in the Russian ranks, has done well to adapt to his new role of sweeper.

But, although he has had to desert the central midfield position he has occupied for more than a decade, the change appears to have worked.

As libero, Mostovoi is still able to break forward with the same vigour that has always characterised his play and continues to act as the spur for the majority of Russia's attacking moves.

He also has an almost telepathic understanding with international and club team-mate Valery Karpin, who has now taken over his role in central midfield.
