Of course some of them l have not seen them playing but l will just select basing on my personal research . I will just do a random selection of these legends and then invite you guys to try and put them in a pecking order of brilliance and expertise on the football pitch. Here we go :
Cristiano Ronaldo , Wayne Rooney , Ryan Giggs, Paul Scoles, Eric Cantona , George Best, Bobby Charlton, David Beckham , Robin Van Persie , Peter Shmeichel, Ruud Van Nistelrooy , Roy Keane, David De Gea, Dennis Law, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Angel Di Maria, Edwin van der Sar, Ole Gunnar Soslkjaer, Bryan Robson and Javier Hernandez.
So from the Legends above , please lets select the best 10 in their pecking order and if possible lets give facts to support our selection.
My personal selection goes as follows :
- Bobby Charlton – most goals ever scored by a United player and yet he played as an attacking midfielder.
- Eric Cantona – work ethic and determination unmatched
- Cristiano Ronaldo- all round ability and blistering pace.
- Ryan Giggs – he controls the midfield and reaps defenses apart with his passes and runs.
- Paul Scholes – his rockets shots, pin point passes and eye for chance creation.
- George Best
- David Beckham – long distance shots, passing, crossing and free kicks
- Peter Shmeichel – they say not even a missile could get past him and if messi faced him today he would look as an amateur striker.
- Ruud van Nistelrooy – magic touch in the box and best finisher of the game.
- Wayne Rooney – complete player , can pass , shoot, head.
Thats my personal selection guys based on my personal views and research, l may not be accurate enough. Kkkkkk, its not easy though.
Yours in football.
