We’re knee-deep in the post-deadline day/pre-international lull at the moment and things are crawling to a stand-still on the football frontier, so, aptly, we thought we’d help pass a slow day by watching a silken technician at work in beguiling slow motion.

Ladies and gentlemen, we give you Juan Roman Riquelme and his fancy feet..

Didn’t that just warm your cockles?

    An absolute genius. Too bad he and Manuel Pellegrini hated each other so much he left Europe prematurely.

  2. peters says:

    absolutely ridiculous… I always tried to sign him in CM01/02 from Boca

  3. Wim Doomed says:

    Thank you Pies, for this. I loved watching him play. Sure, he’d got no pace, hogged the ball as much as *that* kid at school we’ve all played with, but he had everything else. Sublime control, and that *vision*… he could’ve won the lottery every week.

    The real crime is that HD wasn’t around when Riquelme was in his pomp.

  4. Vecchia Signora says:

    The last true number 10

  5. TravisKOP says:

    shame him and maradona never got along when the 2010 world cup was around. couldve watched him one last time

  6. sonny says:

    Really talented for sure, but he never seemed vertical enough for his talent. Just give the damn ball away, man!

  7. Wilson says:

    If Riquelme was blessed with the speed to go with his sublime technique he would have been unstoppable. What a player, he was magical for Villareal.

  8. Marquino says:

    Great player for me the last 10 in the world, watching him playing is magnificient

  9. Whizz says:

    He looks pretty impossible to tackle, such upper body strength…

  10. Whizz says:

    One of the last true no.10s, a shame he never got to grace England or Italy in his career… i guess, he didn’t feel comfortable unless he was taking instructions in Spanish!
