    Football legends in your country

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krzysztof_Warzycha

    Scored over 350 for Panathinaikos in all competitions



    A great player that lit Greece up for over a decade. Signed for PAO in 1989, retired at the club in early 2000s. A real gem. Many clubs wanted to sign him, but he loved Athens and PAO too much. His most famous goal is in the Champions League semis in 1996, the winner Vs Ajax in Holland. Too bad we lost at home the next game

    If I had to compare him with a player, it would be Eric Cantona, though with greater control of temper


    P.S:
    The first part of the video is from an interview later in his career, commenting on the critique that he got old. (He retired at the age of 39). Warzycha says that the general comments usually were that when he didn't score 2-3 goals in the first games, he got old, but he would be among the top goalscorers at the end of the season anyway!!

    No Milan player



    I would say Henrik Larsson, and Gre-No-Li who played at AC Milan during the 50 s are legends. Perhaps Ibrahimovic will reach that status as well in time, but I doubt it.

    Here's another one from Greece:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vassilis_Hatzipanagis

    The Greek Maradona! He really was something else! Out of this world!



    The first guy in the video is Mimis Domazos, "The General", a great attacking midfielder of Panathinaikos(will probably dedicate a post on him at some point).
    What he says:
    Hatzipanagis was a phenomenon. Unfortunately, people grow older, and in football it's happening faster. It's a pity that such football players grow older! As we witnessed, his absence is a very big loss for Greek football
    Second guy says similar stuff

    He was great, not as talented as Maradona of course, but his style was similar, and Greece didn't have great players back then

    You probably wouldn't even know most of them that i would mention, except Lorik Cana, who is by far Kosovo's most successful footballer.
    Locally though, there's a striker called Haxhi Zeka, he probably has more goals than matches played in our league lol, he even is in FM10 lol.
    GRANDE INTER, Amore Mio!

    Dear Santa, the past year, you took my favorite singer, Michael Jackson and my favorite actor, Patrick Swayze.
    I want you to know for the next year, that Milan is my favorite oldie, and Juventus is my favorite bitch.

    Yeah, it's true.

    I'm glad that I've played with him all the month so he was for vacation in Kosovo, and he is great person, not overrated or something like that.. just simply..

    He is brother of my coach, and I'm proud of this.

    Zanetti Recoba



    My country have had lots off good player but most famous were:
    - Davor Šuker - golden ball of WC France '98 great player of real madrid and sevilla
    - Zvonimir Boban - icon in croatia the great capitan he was playing for ac milan but i respect him as a player with great creativity and shot one off best midfielder in last 20 years and one off may favourite players
    - Robert Prosinecki - great technique great vision not fast but his driblings were excellent he is knowed as player who has smoked 40 cigars when he was at his best game winner of CL with Crvena Zvezda and great player of Barcelona and Real Madrid
    - Robert Jarni great left full back and midfielder with excellent runs down the left flank and crosing and he had a great club carire playing for Real Madirid, Real Betis and Juventus
