So I was watching this:
And I couldn’t help but admire Clarence Seedorf’s performance. And I feel he doesn’t really get talked about as much when we discus the great midfielders.
For me, he is right up there (if not, just a smidgen below) with the likes of Zidane, Iniesta, Xavi and Pirlo and far above the likes of Gerrard, Scholes and Lampard who get (deserved) plaudits today.
Feel like kids today don’t know enough about who he was.
4 CL titles when that was a pretty big deal and there were more than like 4 competitive teams in the competition, and did it with 3 different clubs, proving his consistency and longevity.
And of course Kaka got the most recognition and the Ballon d’Or for that 2007 CL win, which was deserved as he was amazing, but Seedorf was right up there in terms of performances throughout the competition.
Dominated Man United, and dispatched Bayern the round before, with some beautiful goals. I remember he used to love handing Bayern beatings.
Consistently a player that delivered in the biggest moments with magic. Great technique, a sublime passer through the lines, and his end product was undoubted.
But yeah, I feel like he is an underappreciated player.
What about you guys, do you agree with me?
Any other players, past or present that you don’t think get the credit and recognition their performances deserve?
