The best soccer players in all history according @santiago60
It is very difficult and very foolhardy to establish who are the best Soccer players in history, since each historical moment is different, as well as each situation and each one has a different style. I consider that the best player of all time is the flea Lionel Messi, this without detracting from the many players who have achieved great achievements throughout the history of Soccer Image source The Number one : Lionel Andrés Messi Cuccittini (Messi) Playing with the Barsa has been 9 times champion in the League, 4 times Champion Champions League, 6 times the Copa del Rey, 3 times the Club World Cup and 3 times the European Super Cup. Messi is the first player in history to win five times the Golden Ball Messi is currently the top scorer of all time in the Spanish League with 400 goals in 435 games Without a doubt, for me, Messi is the best footballer of all time, since he has surpassed them all and will continue to excel due to his great quality as a footballer. Image source The number two: Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro (Cristiano Ronaldo) He is the top scorer of Real Madrid Club de Fútbol with 450 goals. CR7 is the first player who managed to win 4 Gold Boots, being one of the players more times has won the Golden Ball. He is the first and only player in history to win the FIFA The Best award for the best player in the world. He won as Madridista two Copas del Rey, two Leagues and two Supercopa of Spain, thus completing the Spanish triple crown, plus four Leagues of Champions, three European Super Cups and three World Cup Clubs. I think he is the second best football player of all time and there are possibilities that in the future he could become the number one Image source The number three: Edson Arantes do Nascimento (Pelè) With the Brazilian team he won 3 World Cups: in 1958, in 1962 and in 1970. Pelè won 10 Paulista Championships, 3 Rio-São Paulo Tournaments, 6 Brazilian Serie A Championships, 2 Libertadores Cups, 2 Intercontinental Cups and the Intercontinental Super Cup. He is the top scorer in Brazil with a total of 77 goals and Santos with a total of 474 goals. In his career he scored a total of 760 goals, 541 in league championships. In 2014, FIFA awarded him the honorary FIFA Golden Ball for his historic career. I consider him to be the third best player of all time Image source The number four: Diego Armando Maradona He was chosen as the Best Player of the Century in an official vote on the FIFA website With the selection of Argentina he was world champion in 1986, runner-up in 1990 and champion of the Junior World Championship in 1979, in addition to obtaining the Artemio Franchi Cup of 1993. His most important achievements at the club level were obtained by playing for Napoli, where he won a UEFA Cup and the only two scudettos the institution has and has the record of being the player who was five times the top scorer in the Argentine championship. . I consider him to be the fourth best soccer player of all time. Image source The number five: Johan Cruyff The speed and excellent technique of the game changed with Cruyff in the same way that football changed. He is considered to be the best player in Europe. He was chosen as the third best player of the 20th century. He received the Golden Ball three times (in the year 1971, in the year 1973 and in the year 1974), a brand he shares with Michel Platini and Marco Van Basten. He won a Spanish Cup, 4 Spanish Leagues, 3 Spanish Super Cups, 1 Cup Winners Cup, 1 European Cup and 1 European Super Cup with Barcelona. I consider him to be the fifth best player of all time Image source The number six: Alfredo Di Stefano Although he never played a World Cup, it was not an impediment to be considered one of the best players in the history of football- His greatest achievement in the selection was the South American Championship of 1947. He is the best footballer in the history of Real Madrid. The winner of five consecutive European Cups. It was recognized with two gold balls (in 1957 and in the year 1959). I consider him as the sixth best soccer player of all time Image source The number seven: Franz Beckenbauer is nicknamed The Kaiser, is recognized by many people as one of the best footballers of all time. He won a Cup of Winners of the European Cup, 3 European Cups, 1 Intercontinental Cup, 4 Bundesliga and 4 German Cups with the Bayern Munich jersey. He was awarded the Golden Ball of Europe in 1972 and in 1976. I consider him as the seventh best soccer player of all time Image source The number eight: Zinedine Zidane He was an excellent midfielder, being the best player of the year, during the years 1998, 2000 and 2003. He obtained 1 Gold Ball in 1998, 1 Silver Ball, in the year 200 and 1 Bronze Ball in the year 1997. He is considered the best fraès player in history I consider him the 8th best soccer player of all time Special Mention for Ferenc Puskas, Ronaldo, Garrincha y Michel Platini And what do you think about it? What would be the best soccer players of all time for you?
It's not (more) a Soccer for Argentinian coaches?
A different kind of football, that we have enjoyed for years, but today does not always have the possibility to express itself outside the borders. Ok, we lived years in the past where the Argentine style of coaching was considered futuristic, perhaps for charm, perhaps for fashion, perhaps because Soccer was more homogeneous. For example, the times of Carlos Bianchi and Hector Cuper in Italy, which regardless of how evolved their situations and careers, presented themselves as emblazoned names. As well as Bielsa, and its revolutionary school of Soccer, exported and reworked in the years, until today. Today. Harder times, for those coming from South America, for those who are training or have trained in Argentina and hope in a future in Europe. The clear and more recent example is that of Guillermo Barros Schelotto. From the possibility of writing the history of Boca Juniors and crowning a career (aiming to win the Copa Libertadores against the River, in the final of Santiago Bernabeu) to the expatriation in MLS: something did not work, certainly. Something went wrong, no doubt about this. Schelotto is totally paying faults and errors made in Madrid, "El Melli" (who tried to land in Italy in 2016, called from Maurizio Zamparini as head coach of Palermo, but without being able to officially train even a minute for a UEFA coaching license ever achieved) flew to USA. Good luck. Schelotto in the States, Jorge Sampaoli, in Brazil. Totally to forget his World Cup experience on the bench of the Selección, and so far the times of the fantastic U de Chile and his style of Soccer that made him famous in the world. Thanks to the results achieved during that period (2010-2012) he had the possibility to train Chile, Sevilla, Argentina. Before the world cup, a call from Italy: 2016, Lotito, Lazio, the Serie A. But no deal, due to the excessive economic demands of the Argentine coach. Today, a restart in Santos a wonderful city in São Paulo, training Santos F. C., which anyway is not properly the last team in the world. The 2019 of Sampaoli will be in Brazil. An Argentinian, in Brazil. And if anyone remembers the rivalry between those two countries, give an eye to those parts, to see what will happen. Or, just remember the experience of the "Paton" Bauza, champion of Copa Libertadores with San Lorenzo in 2014, head coach of San Paolo in 2015, but that was a difficult year for "O Tricolor". In 2016, the Argentine Selecciòn, and the controversies for the exclusions of Icardi from the squad and the convocation, in its place, of Lucas Pratto; well, after all, the Oso shown all his talent, winning the Libertadores 2019 as a protagonist. Maybe Bauza was right. Maybe not. And Gerardo, "El Tata", Martino? The first successes as a coach in Paraguay with Libertad and Cerro Porteño at the beginning of the millennium, seemed to build a career made of great successes, for him. Good the experience on the bench of the Paraguayan national team at the end of 2006, good the Final 2013 tournament won with Newell's, too. Then Barcelona in 2013, the winning of the Spanish Super Cup, but from there ... something went wrong. The experience at Selecciòn in 2014 could be totally explained in the two Copa America (2015 and the Centenario's one in 2016) lost both on penalties, in the Final, against Chile. Before to sign with the Mexico National Team, he went to train in MLS and has won the title with Atlanta, in 2018. Finally ... El Pibe. How could we ignore it? The highest peak, the 2010 World Cup with Argentina. Did not go so well, as everyone can remember. Then, the experiences in UAE (soccer & dollars, baby), eventually the return to South America, but to Mexico. In the Second Division, training the Dorados. At the end of 2018, Maradona lost the Final match, for the promotion. It's the life, Dieguito. Just take it with philosophy.
