One of the greatest English strikers in history is gone.
Tottenham announced the death of Jimmy Greaves on Sunday, “Who is not only the club’s top scorer, but the best center-forward this country has ever seen. “
Author of 266 goals in 379 appearances for Tottenham, Greaves had “Impeccable ball control, good balance and such composure in front of goal that he rarely missed an opportunity”, recall the Spurs. With 357 goals, he is also quite simply the top scorer in the history of the English Premier League.
Although he was never champion with Tottenham, Greaves, who also played at Chelsea, AC Milan and West Ham, won the World Cup in 1966 with England.
