Tonight football mourns the death of a legend.

Alfredo Di Stefano was truly one of the greatest players to ever grace the game and many football experts who lived through his era of dominance would say he was, at the least, Pele’s equal.

The player who competes with Di Stefano among others paid tribute to the legendary forward. Pele took to his Twitter page to call Di Stefano a ‘trailblazer’ and a ‘legend of the game’.

Pele also credits Di Stefano as a revolutionary figure in football and said that the openness between Latin American clubs and European clubs was down to him.
