Mauricio Pochettino

Club: Paris St Germain
Position: Defender

Along with Marcelo Gallardo, he is the only player in Marcelo Biesla's 23-man squad to be playing in the French domestic league.

But, while it may lack the panache and reputation of La Primera Liga or Serie A, Le Championnat has provided Pochettino with the stage to impress in both domestic and European football.

He has just finished his second season at PSG and remains the very essence of the side's central defence.

He breaks the old fashioned mould for Argentine defenders with his supreme technical ability.
