Best Footballers of the 70s

He is the best
Maradon is amazing but he's 80s
"Hand of God"
Pele called him the greatest footballer in the world and stated he should have been Brazillian. Need anymore be said?

Best footballer ever
I wrote a paper in High School about Pele.1984 ish
Anything they could make a ball out of.. sock what ever was a soccer ball/foot ball was game me and my buddy could make moves and had fun with the sport. Long story before Hackie Sacks.. at the end he had the drive and pure passion to do what he did. Don't matter where you came from, passion.. Enjoy
Pele is easily the greatest Athlete of all time, and defintely the best soccer player of the 20th century.
Pele is the best because he was the youngest and the most talented soccer player.
He his better than best for me and I think we need him to be better placed
the best he is better than any other
Enshrined the ethos of the 1967 Lisbon Lions. Celtic legend and under appreciated footballer.
Jinky on the wing was amazing,his dribbling was superb,the guy was special,he toyed with reall madrid at alfredo destefanos testimonial.only 2 weeks after winning the European cup wit celtic in 67,they won every tournament they entered tat year with a domestic treble same year.and the rest is istory
Pele was better through the 60s from what I know so overall the 70s is Cruyff for me
Should be number 1
Meeh... I dunno... pretty good?
Simply world class 👌
Ranking Beckenbauer behind Best and especially Johnstone is disgraceful.
In his prime, he was the best defender in the world and at the same time one of the best midfielders. As one of the most complete players to ever grace the game, he combined speed, elegance, superb tacklings, powerful long shots and amazing passes.
He was known for being a smart tactician and his interpretation of the "sweeper" heavily influenced football.
When it comes to trophies, Beckenbauer cannot be forgotten: As a player, he led West Germany to a WC title in 1974 and an EC title in 1972. He won the Champions League 4 times (1974,75,76 and 83) and became German Champion 5 times. He was even determined as the 3rd best footballer of the 20th century by the FIFA in 2000, behind Pele and Cruyff, but in front of Maradona. He's clearly one of the greatest ever, only few players in the history of this sport can compare with his skills and fame. Nicknamed "The Emperor" (Der Kaiser) he established an era of ...more

One of the greatest scorers in football history, Ballon d'Or 1970.
The 'bomber' netted 1,461 goals in his career (more than Pele in less matches) and won all the tophies (team and personal as top scorer) in all the tournaments he took part (both with Bayern M. and the National team).Top scorer of the World Cup 1970 (10 goals).

One of the greatest ever! The best scorer of italian national team, Cagliari's legend!
The man known as "roar of thunder"!
The best Italian striker of all time, the legendary "roar of thunder"!
Could easily play for the current Barcalona team
Inspirational player great shot & header of a ball
A brilliant goal scoring midfielder
European footballer of the year 1977
One the best deffenders of all times.
P. S. There is a little mess in this list: Van Basten was a kid in the 70s,Messi wasn't even born(! ),there's no player named Fausto Rossi-it's Paolo and Diego Maradona was just starting his career (youth world champion with the National team). This decade belongs to Cruyff.
He is awesome. he does everything you want a midfielder to do. He passes he ball in good positions, he picks out good passes, his shot accuracy is brilliant, and most importantly he is a great leader.
