Alfredo di Stefano is a famous former Argentinean football player and an excellent coach. He is known to be one of the greatest and best players of all time. He was born on 4 July 1926 in Buenos Aires in Argentina. He played in the forward position and granted many victories to his team. However, he possessed immense stamina and strategic adaptability accompanied with exceptional vision skills and was able to play almost on every part of the pitch very professionally.

In his senior career years from 1945 to 1966, he played for many teams including River Plate, Huracan, Millonarios, Real Madrid and Espanyol. However, his national teams were Argentina in 1947, Colombia in 1949 and Spain from 1957 to 1961. In addition to all these, the teams that he managed in the years 1967 to 1991 included Elche, Boca Juniors, Valencia, Sporting CP, Rayo Vallecano, Castellon and River Plate. Alfredo di Stefano was the part of the proud team who won five successive seasons of the European Champions Cup during the 1950s. In fact he is known to have played during all the five victories. At present, he is the fourth highest scorer of Spain’s top division. He is also known for scoring 216 goals in 282 league matched in the years between 1953 and 1964. This is the reason why he was the Real Madrid’s second highest league goal scorer of all times. Apart from this, he was also given the privilege of being selected as the Golden Player of Spain by the Royal Spanish Football Federation in 2003.

When Manchester United won the Champions League in 2008, Cristiano Ronaldo was named player of the tournament. That was only four years after the young forward scored his first international goal in 2004. Along with the nod in the tournament, he picked up a couple of other honors including: 2008FIF Pro World Player of the Year, 2009 FIFA World Player of the Year and The Ballon d’Or. He was also the Premier League’s Golden Boot winner in 2007/08 and during that same season picked up the European Golden Shoe award. In short, the young players accumulation of honors is more than impressive and if he can stay healthy and continue to play, he will no doubt continue to add more to his already long list of accomplishments.

Since joining Real Madrid, Ronaldo has been plagued by injuries and has yet to fulfill the great expectations that management so clearly has for him. Still, he is a talented young player and, when he is healthy, a real motivator for his teammates and a fan favorite wherever he plays.

    Once again, an awesome round up. C. Ronaldo is no doubt a superstar of Football’s hall of fame, and has the making of becoming some of the greatest football players of all times. The world has yet to see Portugal play so far in Fifa 2010, but whenever the team enters the field, all eyes will be locked on to the young talent who’s been handed over the responsibility of leading his team. Ronaldo has very sharp responses, an experience of playing with (and against) almost all superstars, and the calm of a true sportsman. The responsibility of being the team captain may affect his performance as a player. And here’s to hoping it will not! Rock on, C Ronaldo!

    Good info abt him . Ronaldo is a good player but I guess his move to Real Madrid will take some spot light off him as there are loads of good player in that team. When in Manu he was given special treatment.

    Now looking forward to see him in the worldcup lets see if he can do something special for his national team. I am sure many eyes will be on him. By the way surprise that Real Madrid paid so much for him and he is yet to perform as per his capabilities.

  3. Thank you for the awesome article This is just the thing I needed this morning!!!

    No doubt, he is one of the best players in the wold. He is fast n furious. He has got tremendous pace. He scares the defenders with his mesmerizing footwork. This was his first season at Real Madrid and despite having injury plagued season, he finished 3rd top scorer in La Liga and the 2nd at Real Madrid, just one goal short than Higuain.
