As has had the happy initiative of requiring his best known soccer firms (to which he joined as a guest artist Garci, which was pulled spontaneously) his best team ever. A fun and difficult game, especially for as many megastars as they fight for the positions at the front. Then, he has formed the team with the most voted, which would already be As. I was glad to see that Di Stéfano has had a place in him, something that did not happen in the team that not so long ago did France Football. I am afraid that among the voters only the aforementioned Garci and I reached, by age, to see him play, but it is clear that his memory still remains.
I was happy, because Di Stéfano does not do justice to the images that survive of him. In his time it was hardly filmed, and in cinema, in reels that had to be changed perhaps when the best happened. And his football, while being of great technical neatness, did not have the degree of precious virtuosity that later stars such as Pelé, Maradona or Ronaldinho achieved.. But its effectiveness was maximum. Imagine Casemiro, Zidane and Ronaldo Nazario in one piece. It got muddy like the first, it drove with the elegance of the second and had the weight in the area of the third. He removed, armed and satisfied the commitment of all ‘9’ with the goal.
Iñaki Gabilondo says that when someone cites anyone else as the best in history, “I already know he didn’t see Di Stéfano play”. A Luis Suarez, commentator in the TO BE, Barcelona teammates have stopped asking him if Messi is the best in history. He insists that it was Di Stéfano, whom he had at his side in the National Team and in front of Barça and Inter. “All the rivals marked him with two, and even with that he prevailed.” It was like Martin Fierro, bull in his rodeo and chest in other people’s rodeo. He came to Madrid at the age of 27 and changed the history of the club. The old scrolls of No-Do keep only a tiny part of their greatness.
