He is one of the greatest players of all time. His left foot is among the best ever, creating incredible and unthinkable curves for ordinary players. Thanks to his technical skills and immense charisma, he brought glory to two good but not exceptional teams, Napoli and the 1986 Argentina, with which he became a world champion.
