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.
