→ Celestial Football – Michael Laudrup

Raúl: “The best I have ever played with.”
Cruyff (After Real Madrid with Laudrup had won 5–0 over Cruyff’s Barcelona): “When Michael plays like a dream, a magic illusion, determined to show his new team his extreme abilities, no one in the world comes anywhere near his level.”
Guardiola: “The best player in the world, I can’t believe he hasn’t won the title as best player.”
Beckenbauer: “Pelé was the best in the 60s, Cruyff in the 70s, Maradona in the 80s and Laudrup in the 90s.
Figo:”I think maybe Laudrup was the best player I ever played against.”
Iniesta:”Who is the best player in history? Laudrup.”
