100... Gianluigi Buffon 408



Notes :

Gullit finished 101st, due to his too low total of matches played. Buffon who finished ahead of him, has no less than 80 matches more than him. If Buffon had won once the Champions League, he would rank 30 places higher, overtaking Zidane.

For more precisions and mentions of other players who failed to make this top 100 for some... reasons, see "the absents", the article from which this remark is taken from.

Also, please take note that the players which were part of a winning team were awarded 75 pts even in the case of they did not play the Final.
