It has to be down to his character though, doesn’t it?

Pele, Muller, Cruyff, Platini, Socrates, Rossi, Beckham, Zidane, Figo, Iniesta, Raul, Ronaldo and Messi have all behaved impeccably or well.

 

Rossi was banned for two years ... i would say stick to covid :rofl:

Despite the handball in 86, I never hated him.......... lived the rocknroll lifestyle....... probably the greatest player I ever saw regularly (I was born in 71)

Muller was an alcoholic, but managed with the help of Bayern to turn his life around

A player who could pull brilliance out of the bag, but a very flawed human being. Will largely be remembered in England as an outrageous cheat.

Banned for match fixing. 

Yes, fair enough.  I know Rossi protested his innocence but I agree he’s not a good example of someone behaving well.

And I agree that there are question marks over Platini. Was he ever convicted of corruption?

Not sure about Gerd Muller’s alcoholism though. I don’t recall any bad behaviour from him?

Publicly a cheat, cocaine addict and obese.  Not setting an example as a footballer.
