Kaka, Bale, Ronaldo, Robben and the top 10 fastest players in the history of football

Ffrank 1d

10) Anthony Valencia

Manchester united legend Anthony Valencia is one of the fastest players to have in the ever come out of America.

The Ecuadorian who started out his career as a winger before being converted to a right back was a force to be reckoned with during his days at Wigan and Manchester united.

9) Pierre Emerick Aubameyang

The only African player who makes our list, Aubameyang pace on the ball is often under rated. However, the Gabonese striker is one of the fastest players you can ever think of.

Aubameyang tore down defences to shred with his pace during his early days in the French and German league. This man is seriously underrated.

8) Cristiano Ronaldo

One of the best players in the history of football, Cristiano Ronaldo also ranks as one of the fastest players in history of football.

After bursting on to scene as a skinny teenager with Sporting Lisbon, the Portuguese went on to hit new heights during at Manchester united and early Real Madrid days.

Ronaldo was always rumored to always train with weight straps attached to his knees.

7) Aaron Lennon

Before the likes of Gareth Bale and Kylian Mbappe, there was one man who ruled the football world when it came to speed, that man was none other than the industrious Aaron Lennon.

The jet-heeled winger never really possessed the technicality of Cristiano Ronaldo nor the strength of Adama Traore. However, Lennon's pace on the ball made him impossible to stop during his days at Tottenham. Lennon was a runner.

7) Theo Walcott

Walcott's legacy as the fastest English player of all time doesn't look under threat anytime soon.

The former Arsenal youngster who bursted on to the scene in 2012 possessed so much pace that he once ran the while length of the pitch in his debut season to supply Emmanuel Adebayor a timely assist against Liverpool in the Uefa champions league.

Walcott now mostly plays as an attacking midfielder for Southampton these days.

5) Ricardo Kaka

You wouldn't place on bet on Kaka making our list judging by his body build. However, the now retired Brazilian was probably the fastest player when he had the ball during his playing days.

With the ball at his feet, kaka would easily and almost effortlessly accelerate like a Cheetah and would often leave opposition players in his wake.

Believe me when i say even the Ronaldo's and Ronaldinho's of this world were not as fast of this man when it came to sprinting with the ball, a video on YouTube will go a long way in convincing you.

4) Arjen Robben

Dutchman Arjen Robben will go down as one of the fastest players the football world has ever seen.

Robben who turned out for Chelsea and Real Madrid during the early days of his career was a force to be reckoned with when it came to running with the ball.

The winger was just too quick for opposition players. I will forever that remember that run from his own half against Spain in the 2014 world cup.

3) Adama Traore

A modern day machine, Traore's transformation from a skinny teenager to one of the fastest and strongest players in world football is a very inspiring story.

The 24 year old winger runs like a player with a jet pack attached to his feet. Troare is also not just all about speed, the Spanish winger also possess great dribbling ability and sheer power.

Troare isn't easily stopped.

2) Gareth Bale

Probably the fastest player in the history of football, Gareth Bale was known for his incredible pace on the ball in his early days in the premier league.

The Welshman who started his career as a leftback had to be converted to a full time winger after that his outstanding run against Inter Milan in 2011. Another perfect example was his dazzling run in which he split the Barcelona defence to score the winning goal in copa final in 2014.

1) Kylian Mbappe

One of the reasons why Kylian Mbappe is one of the deadliest attackers in the world is due to the immense pace the 21 year old posses.

Mbappe has on more than one occasion proved to the world why he currently holds the title of being the fastest player in world at the moment.

That insane run from his own half in the 2018 world cup against Argentina was where he really announced how dangerous he can be on the break.
