The Champions Promenade

While walking around in Monaco last weekend we discovered by chance “The Champions Promenade”, a walk by the seaside in Monaco with the footprints of some of the best football players in the History of the sport.

There, I discovered the “Golden Foot” award, different from the Ballon d’Or and the Golden Shoe. While the last two are awarded to the best player and top scorer of the year, the former is awarded only to active players older than 29 years old and can only be won once. Each new winner adds his footprint to The Champions Promenade, being the last one to do so Ryan Giggs.

I was happy to see nine former Real Madrid players in the promenade: Luis Figo, Hugo Sánchez, Roberto Carlos, Zidane, Ronaldo, Kopa, Puskás, Gento and Di Stefano.
