Mine would be Paul McGrath one of the best defenders the world has ever seen. Played towards the end of his career with dodgy knees so bad he could not even train, still ended up being the best player on the pitch week in week out, absolute legend. Thumbs%20Up

Another favourite would be Rivaldo magnificent player.

the man you mean is Paul Breitner. He scored the first german goal in wc-final 1974 (penalty).
But he couldn't sing but tried to act...

I'm American. I like soccer.

As for a favorite FOOTBALL player, I'll go with...let me think...Brett Farve. He isn't on top of his game, but I've always thought he was great.

As for soccer player...

Zidane!!!

It's a shame his great career went out like that....

Its bloody brilliant his career ended like that..It proved that inspite off all his successes and triumphs he was willing to sour allof that to make it clear that the love of his family came first. It makes him even more of a legend...!

Very true. Zidane's a top bloke! How many footballers in this day and age (*Pointing at David Beckham, 'Cashley' Cole etc.) really give a damn about anything other than the obscene money they make?
