Artur Friedenreich, the greatest ever footballer. I’m just watching this documentary – ‘A History of Football’ - and they’re doing this segment on the best players ever. They went through the usuals; Maradona, Pele and Beckenbouer; but then they finished up with this Friedenreich bloke. They say he was the best player ever. Has anyone heard about him? He has the best scoring record of all time, though it was only in the Brazilian League in a pre-Pele era. He also invented the curve-ball kicks, and revolutionised the game with his use of agility and ball control. As back in those days the 'black' players were continually fouled horribly, whilst the white players couldn't be fouled, thus he created a way to ease his way past all the chop-happy players.
