Arsenal's Bergkamp, Manchester United's Cantona & The Coolest Footballers Of All-Time

Dennis Bergkamp

The Arsenal legend played like he had Classic FM on a loop in his head and prowled the turf like a sleepy Lion waiting to pounce. Scorer of, for our money, two of the greatest individual goals of the 90s, against Argentina and Newcastle respectively, and probably the best hat-trick you’ll ever see, against Leicester.

Zinedine Zidane

Laconic, outrageously talented and spectacularly bald, Zidane might have looked like a Trappist Monk, but he played like god’s gift. Everyone will remember that goal in the Champions League Final against Bayer Leverkusen, but what’s also worth a watch is Zidane: Portrait Of A 21st Century Genius, which is the result of 17 synchronised cameras following him for an entire game. Mesmerising.

Socrates

Doctor, smoker, beard wearer and footballer of some repute, the skipper of Brazil’s immensely talented 1982 World Cup was a midfield colossus who could pass around corners such was his vision. Two-footed and able to mix it with the best of them when it came to the physical side of the game, he remarkably only played 162 career games, scoring a phenomenal 114 goals.
