RIP Raymond Kopa

Post by sportsczy on Fri Mar 03, 2017 12:05 pm

Was at Real Madrid from 1956-1959. He is clearly on par with Zidane and Platini in terms of best French players of all time. For Di Stefano, he was on the of the best players at his position that ever lived. Puskas and Gento agreed with Di Stefano. One of those great players that have been mostly forgotten.

Personal Honors
Ballon d'or- Winner: 1958; Runner-up: 1959; Third place: 1956 and 1957

Club Honors
Spanish League (La Liga): 1957 and 1958
European Cup (CL): 1957, 1958 and 1959
Latin Cup: 1957

Voted top player in 1958 World Cup despite finishing 3rd and his teammate holding the all time record for most goals in a WC (Just Fontaine scored 13 goals in that WC).  Pele's Brazil won that WC.

Legend.

Oh no, that is actually tragic news to read. A legit legend of the game and someone who would be immortalise in the halls of the Bernabeu. RIP
