TALL, STRONG PLAYERS ARE GOOD DEFENDERS
On TV, the best defenders are tall and strong, so vice versa it is logical as well: Tall and strong players are good defenders
It is true that the best defenders, in addition to being tall and strong, have developed a whole range of abilities that make them that good.
Without these abilities,
tallness and strength are unusable.
What needs to be understood is that tallness and strength help. A tall player is a better defender than a shorter one if their other abilities are equal.
However, a shorter defender is better if they are superior to a tall one in speed, intelligence, tactical literacy etc.
