Your Letters & Pictures

Who was the greatest soccer player?

I've got to go with Cruijff on this one. I hear what you are saying
about Maradonna, but I don't think he was as much of a leader or strategist.
Plus the whole cocaine thing. Adam R.

I believe Pele was the greatest soccer player of all time. He was an outstanding player who was famous for his grace in scoring, speed, ball skills, and the fabulous "bicycle kick". He was very humble throughout his career. Jesse Zuniga Jr

Hello Coach Gianni,

For me, there are 2 players that are tied as my greatest players ever.

Eusebio because he was a great playmaker and made players playing
with him better and Platini. Platini is a team player first and then
a Star next.
I admire both players committment to team play before their own

Because of this trait that both playesr have other players glorify them
with praises and admiration.

I used to pretend that I had the speed of play of Platini and the
mental toughness of Eusebio. Both players are physical and not afraid
to die on the pitch for their respective teams.

I'm from the old school where team comes first before individual

I have a feeling that you are the same way. I never hear you talk
about yourself and your accomplishements. You always put the players
and the kids first and I admire you for this.

keep up the good work.

Your friend always,

Coach Hervi
