zidane doesn't desreve the first place.but it's what ppl voted for and i think because most of these ppl are young,they can't remember how michel platini or cruyyf or di stefano were playing...
i really think michel deserves a place higher than the nine.also beckham doesn't deserve the place that he stands can ppl choose v.nistelrooy as one of the best players of this recent 50 years???we've known him since 2-3 years ago....look!..omar siviori isn't even at this list...yes..i'm too young to remeber him but i know that he is juve legand and also is alex idol..
