They don’t make them better and bigger than Pele! During his career, he maintained a goal a game ratio – a feat that most players can only dream of. Always a bettor’s favourite, placing a bet on this legend to score was a pretty sure thing. There is nothing that this great could not do and there are many records that he still holds today. Although he was a forward with astonishing striking ability, there is no doubt that he was the centre of every team he played for. He was an inspiration to those he played with and his team mates always spoke of him as a natural leader on the pitch and in the dressing room. Following his career he went on to become an ambassador for the sport and a true legend of the game. His fitness and athleticism inspired a generation of young people to the pitches and his skill has had a lasting legacy on the game. Speak to any bettor today and they will tell you that they dream of having someone like Pele to place a bet on.
So often when we talk about the best and biggest athletes in the game of football we look to foreign leagues and names. However, there is no doubt that the home of football has grown its own superstar and worldwide footballing legend. As current holder of the FIFA World Cup Golden Boot it is clear to see that Kane has the star quality associated with the legends of the game. In his role as Tottenham’s ‘main man’ he is breaking record after record, and is a betting favourite due to the number of goals and assists that he chalks up each week. However, it is not just his goal scoring ability that makes Kane one of the best – he is a team player like no other. Kane’s athleticism allows him to play in any area of the pitch and during a game he can be seen defending the goal, dropping deep to pick up the ball and turning in the box to get a shot at goal. A true sportsman of his time, Kane will be a betting favourite for a long time to come, and a football legend for a long time afterwards.
When it comes to the status of football and helping to support its appeal and its fans worldwide, there is no name bigger and more iconic than that of David Beckham. However, before he became a fashion and humanitarian icon, Beckham was one of the game’s greatest athletes. As a player for Manchester United he was one of the players that bettors loved and opponents feared. Whilst he was always good for a goal – especially from a free kick – those playing against him feared his pace and footballing intelligence. His lung-busting runs and accurate passes and shots set a standard for those who played both with and against him.
