Dani Alves and Phillip Lahm are currently the best right-backs according to Michel Salgado
Former Real Madrid and Spain right-back has stated that Dani Alves and Phillip Lahm are currently the best players in his old position. He said that both players are intelligent and have the necessary skills to play at the top level.
His first choice was Dani Alves though. He said that the Barcelona player has been playing at the top level for a long time and has shown his qualities in both the Spanish League as well as the Champions League. For him, Dani Alves is truly an attacking right back that not only knows how to defend but also participate in the offensive move for his team.
Michel Salgado was also full of praise for the Bayern Munich right-back Phillip Lahm. He said that Lahm is a versatile player and can play in a variety of position on the pitch. It is this versatility that gives him the ability to play both in defending and attacking phase of the game. He said that Lahm is an important player for any team he plays in whether it is Bayern Munich or the German national team.
When asked about the right-backs playing for Real Madrid at the moment, he said that Carvajal was the player that has impressed him the most. He stated that he still have time to develop into a good player but that he should be given time.
However, he has not been impressed by Danilo. He admitted that the player was doing well at Porto but has failed to replicate this form at Real Madrid. He said that perhaps if given time he will be able to find his position in the side and deliver what is expected of him at a great side such as Real Madrid.
