LaLiga, the house of legends

first_imgThe Argentine, thanks to his influence at FC Barcelona, ​​has become one of the best players of all time. At the club level, he has won all possible titles, including 4 Champions and 10 Leagues, in the absence of knowing what happens with the current season. With 603 goals in 687 games for the Catalan club, Messi is the top scorer in the history of the League and his club. Although it would be ridiculous to reduce its importance to their number of goals.2 – Cristiano Ronaldo The captain of Real Madrid is one of the Spanish with the best record of history, thanks to his four Champions and four Leagues. The center-back, indisputable in all the successes of both the white club and the Spanish team, is by right one of the best players in recent memory. His leadership has made him one of the great captains in the history of Real Madrid.The list is completed by other great names that did not go through our League, but have been for years the best in the world: Paolo Maldini (9), Roberto Baggio (10), Ryan Giggs (13), Wayne Rooney (fifteen), Gabriel Batistuta (17), Eric Cantona (18), Paul Scholes (22) and Gianluigi Buffon (25). The only player who has managed to stand up to the Argentine. The Portuguese is one of the fiercest scorers in memory. Thanks to his 450 goals in 438 games wearing the Real Madrid jersey, he became the all-time top scorer for the most successful club in the world. He is also the top scorer in the history of the Champions League, a competition that he has won up to five times, although one of them was with the Manchester jersey. In addition, it has conquered the league in three different countries: England, Spain and Italy.3 – Zinedine ZidaneThe current coach of Real Madrid will go down in history as the first coach to win the Champions League in three consecutive seasons. But, as a player, the Frenchman became quite a legend. A period midfielder, whose elegance on the pitch made him worthy of winning a golden ball. Author of the goal that gave the ninth ‘orejona’ to Real Madrid, he was also key in achieving the ’98 World Cup and the 2000 Euro Cup for France.4 – Ronaldo NazarioHis multiple knee injuries meant that he didn’t get to be bigger than he was. But the Brazilian is, after Pelé, the best player in the history of Brazil, a country with great legends. In his time at Real Madrid and Barcelona he delighted the spectators, becoming one of the best scorers our League has had. With two World Cups and two Copa de América to his credit, it must always remain that he could never get the Champions League, the highest European title at club level.5 – RonaldinhoThe footballer with the ‘indelible smile’ is, without a doubt, one of the players who has most delighted the eyes of anyone who had the pleasure of watching him play. With an unbeatable record, the Brazilian won all the great titles that a footballer can achieve, both at the club level and at the national team level. He is one of the best dribblers in the history of football and one of the greatest talents who has passed through our league.6 – Thierry HenryThe French striker, who spent three seasons at FC Barcelona, ​​had his best years at Wenger’s Arsenal, although it was an important piece for Guardiola in achieving the sextet. Like Ronaldinho, he has achieved all the important titles that a footballer can achieve, including a World Cup and a European Championship with France.7 – Xavi HernándezThe first Spanish footballer on this list is, without a doubt, the best player our country has had in its history.. Fundamental piece in the best years of the history of FC Barcelona, ​​one of the generations that has won the most titles in the world, was, in turn, essential for Spain to position itself as the best team in the world between 2008 and 2012, achieving two Euro Cups and one World Cup.8 – Andrés IniestaThe player of the great moments. Andrés Iniesta will remain, forever, in the memory of all Spaniards thanks to the goal against Holland that gave Spain its first and only World Cup. With FC Barcelona, ​​he formed together with Xavi and Busquets one of the best centers on the field, if not the best, in the history of football. One of those footballers that even the biggest enemies of his team couldn’t hate.11 – RivaldoFor years, he was one of the best players in the world. The Brazilian combined a skillful skill with the ball at his feet with a killer instinct inside the area. A combination that made him win all the possible titles, although the Champions could not be won with the FC Barcelona shirt, but with the Milan shirt. 12 – Fabio CannavaroAlong with Franz Beckenbauer and Matthias Sammer, he is the only center-back in history who has managed to lift the Ballon d’Or. He did it in 2006, when he was already wearing the Real Madrid shirt, although he really won it thanks to his great role in World Cup-winning Italy and Juventus.14 – KakaHis time at Real Madrid was disappointing, due to all the expectations that his transfer raised and that he could not fulfill, largely as a result of his injuries. But, the Brazilian, was the last winner of the golden ball before the beginning of the Messi and Cristiano dynasty. He did it thanks to his unforgettable season with Milan, with which he won the last championship of the Italian club. With Brazil, he managed to win the World Cup in 2002.16 – Luis FigoThe Portuguese, in Spain, played with the shirt of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, ​​with which he became captain before leaving the eternal rival in one of the most controversial transfers remembered. In his time in our country, he won four Leagues and one Champions League, before going to Inter and obtaining another four league championships..19 – Luka Modric If Kaka was the last Ballon d’Or winner before the duel between Cristiano and Leo Messi began, the Croatian has been the only player who has managed to break with that hegemony. He did it in 2018, after getting the third consecutive Champions League with Real Madrid and leading his country to the World Cup final, which he lost against France. He is one of the best midfielders our League has had in recent times.20 – Sergio Busquets The prestigious English magazine FourFourTwo has published the ranking of the best 25 soccer players in the last 25 years. In this list, up to 17 footballers who have gone through the Spanish League appear, which speaks to the dominance and power of attraction that our competition has had in recent decades.1 – Leo Messi Although its importance has not reached the level of Xavi and Iniesta, Catalan is one of the great names in our football in recent times. Undeniable for years at both FC Barcelona and the National Team, their partnership with the previous two will be remembered forever. Del Bosque, the most successful coach in the history of our country, said he would have liked to look like him if he were a player. There would be a reason.21 – Raúl GonzálezThe best Spanish striker in history and one of the best footballers to wear the Real Madrid shirt. Before Messi and Cristiano appeared, Raúl was unrivaled among the world’s top scorers. Hierro’s famous phrase defined him perfectly: “It is not a ten in anything, but it is a nine and a half in everything.”23 – RomarioThe Brazilian was part of the ‘Dream Team’ in the best year of his career, 1994, when he managed to win the League as the top scorer, thanks to his 30 goals. That same year he was named the best player in the World Cup, in which Brazil managed to rise as champion 24 years later and where Romario formed a fearsome duo with Bebeto. Then he would return to Spain with the Valencia shirt, although his relationship with Luis Aragonés made his time at the Ché club ephemeral.24 – Sergio Ramoslast_img
