5 most loyal players of the 21st century


It would be reductive to say that loyalty is no longer so common in the world of football. While it is true that there has been a sharp drop in the number of “players from one club”, players are still giving everything for the badge.

Old school values ​​are still revered, but perhaps not respected as they once were. Thus, players who strut for a single club throughout their careers have become a rarity. But there are still plenty of players who settle in a club and decide to stay there for a very long time.

Players like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Xavi, Steven Gerrard are all examples of players from one club. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the five players who have spent the most time at one club.
