Zinedine Zidane

Arguably one of the greatest players of all time. He has featured in the top 125 players of all time named by pele himself and has numerous other awards like Fifa World Player Of the year 3 times. Only two players have done so in the history of the game, the other being Ronaldo(AC Milan). I don’t think I have to apprise people of his achievements and what he has done for both club and country but just to give you an idea, Zidane has done everything, scored in cup finals, has won every major trophy, played for country and captained it as well. I have not seen a player with a first touch so good, but then again I have not seen a lot of things.

Zidane was known for his passing,his vision, positioning, composure and everything else that you would want from your play maker except that he does not defend as well as Lampard or Gerrard do. That said, I think his attacking qualities make up for that, by a long way. His tendency to control games in the midfield and slow the pace of any game down to his own natural pace is just unbelievable and he just didn’t do it against weaker sides like Cristiano does but he also showed all the top teams in Europe why he is the best out there, I think zidane was the best player in the world for probably 4 or 5 years by a country mile. I just loved his quality of coming up with magic moments in desperate times as we all saw in the world cup 2006(never mind he headbutt).

Headbutt aside, I think he was the best player in the world cup 2006 as well
