My Perfect Player #1
Brain – Dennis Bergkamp
Always three steps ahead of everybody. A true genius who made football seem so easy. A true legend but more importantly a true gentleman. Everything a footballer should be.
Head – Alan Shearer
He could head the ball with so much power. He had amazing accuracy, he could put the ball across the keeper with so much ease and find the net.
Eyes – Zinedine Zidane
Zizou had an aura, he seemed to glide around the pitch (my favourite player of all time). He could see things no one else could even dream of. He always had an end product; either a great finish or a perfect sliding pass. The perfect midfielder.
Mouth – Patrick Vieira
Everyone wanted to follow him, he could completely control a game on his own. Go on lung busting runs, slide tackles and scored some great goals. The complete midfielder who would take the game by the scruff of the neck and always give 100 per cent every week. A great leader.
Lungs – Wayne Rooney
Wayne chases, chases and chases again and he loves every minute of it. He plays with his heart on his sleeve, which is an amazing attribute to have. He gives everything for his team every week and will fight until the final whistle blows.
Left foot – Lionel Messi
The ball just seems to stick to his foot. He can do whatever he wants… Once he gets going it is impossible to stop him. Seems pointless trying to sum him up, he is just so good! The best player of all time? Hell yes!
Right foot – Ronaldo (Brazilian)
Pace, power and precision – he had it all. In his day the best player in the world… untouchable. He had tricks that would leave to defenders for dead. The greatest goalscorer in World Cup history, what more can I say. The phenomenon is a fully deserved nickname.
