Ruben Baraja
Club:Valencia
Position:Midfielder

Baraja has become an increasingly established player onboth the Spanish domestic and international fronts, but he took his time.

He made little impression at either Valladolid or Atletico Madrid before he was snatched up by Valencia where he has become one of their leading figures.

He was arguably one of the most influential players in their championship-winning season this year, acting as the creative force in midfield.

The 26-year-old likes to move forward himself and scored once in four qualifying appearances for Spain.
