Five Favourite Footballers - Valeron

Although about seven years past his prime at the time, this four-minute video captures the subtle genius of Juan Carlos Valeron.

He is the most creative player I have ever seen - the archetype of what it looks like to play "in the hole". Diego Tristan and Roy Makaay have him to thank for their reasonably successful careers, with the latter acknowledging that Valeron is the best player he has played with. I have him to thank for mapping out the way football ought to be played.
