I'm feeling a bit old this morning!
In what way do you find him overrated?Well he was a great player and he is overrated. Didn't have time to do a thesis sorry
He was certainly one of the best midfielders in the PL era. I wouldn't however rank him alongside the likes of Xavi and Iniesta, as many do. They were a level aboveIn what way do you find him overrated?
He was the total package of a midfielder.
I personally preferred the latter part of his career as the DLP. People just couldn’t get close to him.
I don't agree with your opinion , but I do understand what you are saying. He was usually the best player on the pitch without ever catching the eye as some players do. Was more rated from the players he played with and against than people that just watched him play.
I see.On here certainly, and many pundits do too.
There's also the perception he played a similar role as Xavi and Iniesta his entire career, which again is incorrect.
Except Xavi and Zidane themselves did it. And said he was better.Criminally underrated outside of United during his active days but i have to say the hype around him after his retirement is going a bit too far.
Comparing him with Xavi Iniesta Zidane is ridiculous.
