One thought on “Ambidextrous Best Soccer Players in History

  1. Totally agree with this ranking. There are other rankings currently put quye players like Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo as ambidextrous, but actually an ambidextrous is not who hits it with both feet and ready, He is the player who has ball control with both, you can drag the ball with both over long distances, the fact that others do not know whether you're right or left is what characterizes most ambidextrous, because you hit and drive the same way both legs, Brehme remember as spectacular defense and Overmars was also remarkable handling.
