Age is nothing but a number when players are motivated and ready to use their experience to continue being successful. We’ve dug through FootballCoin stats. Now here are five of the best veteran players still active in Europe’s best leagues.
Glenn Murray – Brighton, 35 years old
It’s hard not to take a dig at the likes of Lukaku or Morata when looking at 35 year old Murray’s stats. He’s scored six times in ten appearances for Brighton this season. The team sits comfortably mid table of the very competitive Premier League. In FootballCoin Murray has managed 239.85 points this season, making him a sensible choice for the forward position. It should do enough to have Alexis Sanchez blushing.
Fabio Quagliarella – Sampdoria, 35 years old
Grandissima vittoria,serata speciale e gol al 93! Goduria!! pic.twitter.com/Wd4keNnPXx

Time’s gone by, but that has done little to quench Quagliarella’s appetite for playing and scoring. The former Juventus striker is still a regular starter for Sampdoria, helping the team to 6th place in the Serie A and making the team’s fans dream of European football for next season. With 278.97 this season, 40 in just his last game, it’s hard not to still consider Quagliarella as one of the best forwards in the Serie A.
Thiago Silva – PSG, 34 years old
Silva has been one of PSG and Brazil’s most important players for many years. His consistency have been of great help to the Parisians’ run of success in Ligue 1. Still a starting player for the French leaders, Silva has managed 257.94 points this season, making him one of the best free players in the FootballCoin game.
Ricardo Quaresma – Besiktas, 35 years old
Always working for better results https://t.co/GyfoO7QNVt

The Portuguese forward has been applying his talent in the Turkish Super Lig since 2015. Still a viable option for the Euro 2016 winners and one of the Turkey league’s best players, Quaresma is indispensable for Besiktas. The team is currently in fourth place, but their objective is to win the league. Quaresma has scored twice, offered seven assists and has managed 127.65 (on Easy mode) points on FootballCoin.
Vedad Ibisevic – Hertha, 34 years old
It's all over in Cologne!

He is Edin Dzeko rival for the striker position in Bosnia Herzegovina’s national squad. It’s a national side regularly fileld with quality players. He has also had a consistent career of a goal bomber in the Bundesliga. Ibisevic has been playing in Germany since 2009, having scored almost 100 goals. So far, this season, he has managed four in nine appearances for Hertha Berlin. It’s a good season and the team is hopeful of a Europa League finish. Ibisevic has managed 208 points (on Easy) and if he remains this consistent, the objective is certainly achievable.
