Ferenc Puskás, one of the most significant players in the history of Hungarian football, won the title of the greatest player of all time on goal.com’s poll. The captain of the Golden Team beat the Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in the finals, mno.hu reports.
Goal.com recently announced their Legends World Cup tournament, and Puskás was the only classical football player to make it to the final four. In the last round he competed against Cristiano Ronaldo, and thanks to 97,000 Hungarian votes, won the competition. He earned 69% of the more than 190,000 votes people cast worldwide.
According to szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu, it is not a surprise that most of the votes for Puskás came from Hungary, and there was a significant amount from neighbouring countries as well as England. Portugal, however, only supported Ronaldo with around 500 votes; his supporters seem to be much more widespread in the world. The statistics of the poll show that there were people in Hungary whom, despite their nationality, voted for Ronaldo, but there was also 10% in Portugal who voted for Puskás.
The legendary Hungarian football player beat the likes of Marco van Basten, Diego Maradona and Zinedine Zidane.
