1. Diego Maradona
It’s impossible to overstate Diego Maradona’s ability as a footballer.
The Argentina legend, who inspired his country to World Cup glory in ’86, was born to play the game.
Maradona takes the No. 1 position on this list because he played at a time when the rules of the sport were far more lenient towards no-nonsense defenders, who would attempt to take lumps out of El Diego in each and every match.
That Maradona conquered this battle and still produced match-winning performances on a weekly basis just shows what a remarkable player he was.
