Speed is an important factor in all sports, and things are no different in football.
There have been a lot of fast players to play the game, and some of them have even been the best players in the game.
A race, or set of races, would definitely be the easiest way to settle the debate about the fastest players, but that will never happen for a number of reasons—one being that some players on this list are retired.
In any case, we will try and sort out who are some of the fastest players to have played the game.
Here they are. Enjoy.
