    Just a postscript on this: I watched some more footage on Liedholm the other night (a sort of highlights package from his Milan days) and, while he was two-footed enough to make it difficult to say for quite a while, he then took a penalty with his left foot - again, not a perfect guide but a very strong indication.

    let's also make a mention of the 'honorary left footers' i.e.right footers who made a great left foot contribution to the sport.I mean right foot players who could dribble,make a pass,assist and even score with their left[weak foot].

    A genuine two- footers thread would be VERY interesting .

    Can't think of too many off the top of my head tbh..

    Best ever two footed player I've seen is Glen Hoddle although he's pretty much best at most things ( tackling and heading discounted ) .

    Gordillo was a back, very much like todays Marcelo.

    He did play both as left back, and left midfielder/winger I know, over his career.

    Yes, probably it can be Gordillo also played more as a left-back but I should maybe add a "don't quote me on that" as I haven't looked into it in detail! When I think of all-time players I think of him more among the left-back options, but I suppose it's a harder task to be considered among the best left wingers anyway and in that role I don't think he was so much all-time material although still effective.

    He was an attacking left back for sure when he played there, so I completely see the Marcelo comparisons. Real Madrid sometimes/often played Camacho behind Gordillo I'm thinking, hence the left-back being an outright defender when that happened (despite in general not exactly a defensive approach in those teams).
