Luis Enrique is definitely one the finest midfielders Spain has ever produced

Pele is regarded by many as the greatest player of all time. He mesmerised fans around the globe during the 60s and his accolades with both club and country put him on the pedestal of the best. So when a personality such as Pele puts your name in his top 125 footballers list, you know you are special.

In March 2004, Pele published a list of the 100 greatest footballers alive and Luis Enrique was one of the only three Spaniard in that list, with the other two being Real Madrid legends, Raul Gonzalez Blanco and Emilio Butragueno.

This in itself is a high praise from the man that many consider as the best player in the history of football.
