The nation of Brazil has given the world many dribbling magicians over the years, but none were as beloved or fondly remembered as Mané Garrincha. It 's easy to understand the masses ' infatuation with him – Garrincha 's tale is a story of a man who overcame multiple birth defects to become one of football 's greatest stars. With him as the team 's heart, Brazil won two consecutive World Cups in 1958 and 1962. In 1999, Garrincha was voted the seventh greatest football player of the 20th century. Having been born with a deformed spine and a right leg that was six centimeters longer than the left one, Garrincha 's future as a professional football player seemed rather bleak from the outset.

Beckham had already cemented his position as an international football celebrity by then and it was this, coupled with Beckham’s marriage to Victoria Posh , which led to the duo’s disagreements.

Authority is what counts” , illustrating his iron grip on autocracy and his high level of power in the club.
