David Beckham

Aside from the glamour, David Beckham brought to the Premier League a range of passing that had never been seen before.

His right foot set the league alight on the opening weekend of 1996/97, when he scored for Manchester United from the halfway line at Wimbledon.

A six-time title-winner, Beckham tormented opponents with whipped, curling crosses that were impossible to defend. The midfielder also scored 18 free-kicks, six more than any other player in the competition's history.

What they said

“From the start you knew the quality he had and the professionalism. His range of passing and his free-kicks were brilliant and that was no accident – he was out there practising all day long.” – Gary Neville

"He had unbelievable stamina... he could run all day, and that allowed him to stay in the game at that kind of level, playing for his country in his mid-30s.” - Sir Alex Ferguson

“David Beckham is up there with the best passers I’ve ever played with. Over a long distance he was ‘radar foot’. Some left-footers look beautiful when they pass the ball. His right foot was like that – it even sounded nice when he hit the ball.” - Rio Ferdinand
