The Last Libero is an independent football website with an emphasis on freedom and innovation. Through iconic illustrations and photos, and through journalism liberated from constraint, we present the beautiful game through our eyes.

This is football without the reach of the Premier League and beyond the glamour of the Champions League. It’s about the characters and great storytelling that make football the world’s most popular sport. It’s the freedom to create, to innovate, to be different, to stand out.

Libero is the freedom to forge your own path.

Beckenbauer made it famous. Matthaus and Sammer made it efficient. Pirlo adapted the position and brought it to the modern game. Busquets keeps the legacy alive. Libero.
