Two things stand out
Name Juventus best foreign player ever in 1997, quite a accolade when you consider some of the players who played for them
Charles' accomplishments with Juventus led to him being voted 'the greatest foreign player ever in Serie A', ahead of Maradona, Michel Platini, Marco Van Basten and Zinedine Zidane – this in 1997, 34 years after his last appearance in the league. In 2001 he became the first non-Italian inducted to the Azzurri Hall of Fame.
Some accomplish that fucker
Way way too young to have seen him play, have read about him though. He was a centre half/forward and would often start the match as a forward and score a couple and then they'd stick him in the back four for the second half to keep out the goals.
He's the greatest ever Welsh player and was voted so. Bobby Robson said he was the most magnificent player he ever saw and that his mind as a footballer was incomparable to that of any other, a true genius.
Wish there was some video somewhere of him, you never hear about him when anyone mentions 'great players'. (Probably sky's fault that).
