Tributes continue to pour in for the late Alfredo Di Stefano after the Real Madrid legend passed away yesterday at the age of 88.
Despite most of the players paying these tributes not being born when Di Stefano was playing, they still feel compelled to say their piece about a player they know was truly special.
Even highlights of Di Stefano on Youtube shows what a magnificent player he was. Obviously not as much as those who saw him but we can all dream of the awe felt by supporters who witnessed his skills in the flesh.
Below are some tributes to one of the greatest players of all time.
I have always had a good friendship over the years with Alfredo Di Stefano. We have lost a good man and a great footballer. RIP, my friend

My gut feeling is that this Rest of the World team (Puskas, Yashin, Di Stefano, Eusebio etc) was probably decent. pic.twitter.com/gwQn7uaqur
