COLERAINE striker Stewart Nixon has shortlisted his top ten favourite footballers of all time…
Over the next few months, colerainefc.com will be asking current first-team stars to narrow down ten players and explain the reasons for their inclusion.
With Stewart known for his speed and acceleration, it should come as no surprise as that a few fast players make his top ten.
10 – Gareth Bale
Another player that has unbelievable pace and power, he can score goals from anywhere and always has people on the edge of their seats when watching him.
9 – Kaka
This Brazilian was unbelievable in his peak and could do anything on a pitch with ease.
8 – Andres Iniesta
Just oozes with silk and used to glide through the pitch without a problem. Loved watching him.
7 – Sergio Ramos
Absolute beast and loves getting stuck in. He is a proper defender and one of the best I’ve seen in my time.
6 – Wayne Rooney
England’s best striker, can score goals from anywhere and also loves a good tackle.
5 – Kylian Mbappe
Pace, power and goals – he has it all at such a young age and he is a good role model for any young forward.
4 – Neymar
Loves getting hit a good tackle, but the pace and skill this man has is absolutely ridiculous.
3 – Paul Scholes
The man can pick out a 70-yard ball right to your toe so what else would you want? He is also the best ever English midfielder.
2 – Ronaldinho
He’s just got it and smiled every time he was on the pitch.
1 – Cristiano Ronaldo
The best player to ever play football.
