Scholes was quality but I agree, Giggs was vastly overrated just because of his longevity.
Keane was underrated in contrast.
Anyways, I’ll add an unpopular football opinion.
Pele was a bit of a fraud. have no doubts he was a fantastic player, but I feel Cruyff, Eusebio, Maradona are above him in the conversation of the GOAT and Messi and Ronaldo are probably the best ever.
After reading up a bit more about those times, it seems he was able to big himself up a lot because he stayed alive while his teammates who were also worldclass and helped him score the goals died and weren’t able to tell their stories. (Garrincha, Jarizinho etc.)
Like everyone including me just assumed he was integral in the 1962 WC, but it turns out he was injured most of the tournament and it was Garrincha who basically ran the show.
He also never played in Europe. Furthermore, those 1,000 goals he scored includes the goals he scored in all friendlies as well lol, vs like u23s or some Brazilian pub teams etc. If you count only the competitive goal total, Eusebio actually scored more in his career.
And I bet Messi and Ronaldo arent that far off.
