The Guardian Names Its Top 100 FootballersBy: The Offside | December 24th, 2012
And they did so by descending – ascending? – from 100 to 1 over the course of a few days. Because there was ever a question, right?
Lists are, as ever, never to be taken seriously, but it’s always a fun look, and they do fairly well on the top 10 at least, which is something most lists cannot say. Quietly – ever so quietly – Edinson Cavani sneaks into that top 10, which looks mildly curious at first, because his name doesn’t come up in many “best of” discussions, but looking at the numbers…he’s simply Radamel Falcao without the hype.
And somebody please ask Mourinho why he benched #12.
