A list of the 50 greatest footballers of all time has been released featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi, Maradona, Pele, Zidane, and more legends.
In this list of the greatest footballers of all time, Diego Maradona has been ranked as the greatest footballer of all time, with Pele and Lionel Messi completing the top-three.
The legendary Maradona, who sadly passed away in 2020 aged 60, is widely regarded as one of the finest talents ever seen in football and played a pivotal role in Argentina’s famous 1986 World Cup glory.
Hence, in a list made by 90Min, Diego Maradona was recognized as the best player in football history.
Pele and Messi are joined in the top five by fellow legends Franz Beckenbauer and Johan Cruyff. Somehow, Portugal’s all-time leading goalscorer and five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo was voted as only the seventh-best player in football history and behind even Ronaldo Nazario, who took sixth-place.
Meanwhile, only three other active players made to 90Min’s list of the greatest footballers of all time: Andres Iniesta (31st), Robert Lewandowski (48th), and the 2018 Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric (50th).
