Pele, Diego Maradona, Zinedine Zidane: Who's the Greatest in Soccer History?

Joe Del BussoContributor IOctober 22, 2008

Well, what a topic, folks. This may be one of the hardest questions to answer in the world.

When looking at the game of soccer you may not have to look very far into the past to see just who exemplifies the game as a whole and can truly be called the "All-Time Best."

I've decided to compile a list of potentials. I will then dedicate an article to each of the potential winners and in the end give my final thoughts on just who it could be.

So without further ado, here are the top 10 finalists:


1. Diego Maradona

2. Pele

3. Zinedine Zidane

4. Ronaldo

5. Michel Platini

6. Dino Zoff

7. Alessandro Del Piero

8. George Best

9. Gianluigi Buffon

10. Franz Beckenbauer


Stay tuned for their individual articles and the final summary.
