Clarence Seedorf evokes comparisons with Brazilian & Botafogo legend Garrincha
- April 16, 2013
Clarence Seedorf’s successful period in Brazil at Botafogo may have reached a peak on Sunday night with an awesome trick against Novo Iguaco.
The former Real Madrid and AC Milan midfielder has been terrific in Brazil, scoring and creating goals, making a mockery of the fact he is 37-years-old.
For a Botafogo performer, there is no greater comparison than 1950s & 1960s legend Garrincha.
The bandy legged winger played his best football for the Rio side and was one of the most important players in Brazil’s 1962 World Cup triumph.
Seedorf evoked comparisons with Garrincha by beating a Novo Iguaco defender without touching the ball – a move Garrincha perfected during his outstanding career.
