Matt Le Tissier
Matthew Le Tissier is a former English professional football player, who was mainly positioned as an attacking midfielder. He played for Southampton and the England National team throughout his professional career as a footballer. Indeed, Le Tissier was
blessed with extraordinary technical skills and game-playing tactics.
He was the first ever midfielder to net a hundred goals in the Premiership history and the second-highest goal scorer for Southampton side, only second to Mick Channon. In 1990, the Englishman was selected as the PFA Young Player of the Year. Not only that,
Le Tissier made 270 Premier League appearances with 102 goals at his part.
The English legend’s mesmerizing performances attracted bigger clubs like Tottenham and Chelsea towards him. However, he remained at Southampton club for his entire career – a loyal decision that earned him the title of “Le God.”
About Le Tissier, Xavi Hernandez stated: “His talent was simply out of the norm. He could simply dribble past seven or eight players but without speed—he just walked past them. For me he was sensational.”
Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro, or simply Cristiano Ronaldo is a professional football player from Portugal, who is deployed as a winger or a forward on the pitch. The epitome of brilliance currently plays for the Spanish La Liga’s club, el Madrid.
He also happens to be the captain of the Portuguese national team.
Ronaldo is indeed the most expensive player in the soccer history so far, with the yearly payment being £11 million for over six years of his contract with Real Madrid. He has played for the English Premier club, Manchester United from 2003 to 2009. The
Portuguese footballer holds a plethora of world awards, including the honour of being the first ever official to triumph over the FIFA Puskás Award.
Ronaldo cemented his status as a prolific goal scorer at the Manchester United side by making a sum of 196 Premier League appearances with 84 goals. Real Madrid paid an astounding £80 million transfer bid for him. However, Ronaldo seems to have completely
justified his price tag so far, with magnificent performances at the pitch.
Ronaldo is definitely an arrogant player but well he is also known as one of the best in the world. Once asked in an interview who he thought was the best football player in the world, the Portuguese international replied ‘Myself.’
Right now Cristiano Ronaldo tackles the fans and the critics on reviews, as who is in fact the best in the Spanish La Liga and further the world as he is always compared to Lionel Messi.
Messi even has a better track record for the latest season but still the honour of the most expensive player in the world with a one billion dollar buy out clause remains to be only Ronaldo.
