6. Carles Puyol – FC Barcelona
One of the most respected players in Spain, Puyol has been a true Catalan since 1996. He was in the youth team during the early 90′s and made it his debut for the senior side in 1999.
Puyol had maintained his position in the side with lion-hearted displays at the back till he retired in 2014. With over 10 individual awards and guiding Barcelona to 5 La Liga titles, he has 3 Champions League medals to his name.
Many clubs want to lure the centre-back away, but the defender, who has 99 caps with his international side, Spain, wants to stay with the Catalan club forever.
