Delvin Ndinga (Olympiakos, Congo)
In the midst of midfield chaos, Delvin Ndinga is the calm in a storm. He often keeps a cool head, and dictates tempo, controlling possession play. The Monaco-owned man is not physically imposing; rather, he impacts matches with intelligently timed tackles and interceptions. After featuring for Olympiakos 33 times last season, the Greek champions have agreed to renew his loan, taking the Congolese stalwart on for one more season. In Group A, Ndinga contributed to a monumental 3-2 upset against Champions League finalists Atletico Madrid, and he started in a 2-0 loss to Swedish champions Malmo.
