A mathematician resolves the controversy over the greatest player in history using a "unique algorithm"


Oxford University mathematician, Dr. Tom Crawford, claimed to have settled the debate about the greatest footballer of all time, by using mathematics and following a unique algorithm.

Crawford's use of a unique calculation takes into account the achievements of each of the competitors at the level of clubs that he played for and his country.

According to the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, Dr. Tom Crawford compared football legends across all ages in search of a definitive answer to the controversial question.

Dr Crawford said: 'As a huge football fan, I have discussed for a long time with my friends who is the greatest player of all time. world of football.

He continued: "While Cristiano Ronaldo came out on top in my calculations, it is clear that all the other players' statistics are absolutely amazing, and I am sure the discussion will continue."

An analysis of the numbers conducted by Dr. Crawford revealed that the star Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest ever, and the Portuguese, who is preparing for his first appearance at Old Trafford in the Manchester United shirt, in the next few days, has surpassed his Argentine rival Lionel Messi, in addition to the legends Pele. , Ferenc Puskas, Alfredo Di Stefano, Diego Armando Maradona, and Brazilian Ronaldo "The Phenomenon".

Dr. Crawford, a football fan, created seven categories in which legends were evaluated and ranked, and in order to qualify for the competition initially, players had to win at least two Ballon d'Or awards, or be recognized as great players of the era prior to 1956 When the awarding of the prestigious award was started.

This shortlist includes Ronaldo, Messi, Pele, Maradona, Marco van Basten, Johan Cruyff, Puskas, Di Stefano, the phenomenon Ronaldo, and Michel Platini.

Dr. Crufor evaluated what each player had achieved with the clubs he played through the relative strength of the local championships and cups he won, using the European Football Association "UEFA" coefficient for this particular season.

Ronaldo, who has an impressive resume in which he won seven titles in three different countries in addition to five Champions League titles with Manchester United and Real Madrid, outperformed Messi.

The second factor in the equation took into account international titles, with 150 points awarded for the World Cup and 100 for the European Championship, the European Championship or the Copa America.

Given that Brazilian superstar Ronaldo has won the World Cup twice and the Copa America twice, it comes as no surprise that he has won this factor with a maximum score of 100 points.

The third criterion for Dr. Crawford relates to goals scored with clubs and here the Hungarian legend Puskas, who scored 625 goals in 629 matches, got full points.

Pele, with his record 643 in 659 games for Brazilian club Santos, was not far from the competition and topped this factor overall.

The next category was international goals and here Cristiano Ronaldo returned to the top of the list of the greatest after he had just passed Iran's Ali Daei to set the record for international goalscorers.

After the last round of the Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifiers, in which he scored two goals against Ireland, the Portuguese star reached 111 goals with his country.

Dr. Crawford's fifth factor relates to winning the Ballon d'Or, or more specifically, the Ballon d'Or votes obtained, with Pele receiving the highest score, but Cristiano, who has won the award five times, is able to maintain his overall lead.

The sixth category is concerned with records achieved, and of course Ronaldo excelled as he is not only the best international scorer of all time, but holds five world records in total.

Finally, Dr. Crawford created something called "Z-Factor", which is based on the seasons in which the player has led his team to the top thanks to his goals.

In this category, Messi excelled thanks to his goals that led Barcelona to 10 titles in the Spanish League "La Liga" and four in the Champions League, but what he did is not enough to remove Ronaldo from first place in the final result, which indicates that he is really the greatest player of all time.

Cristiano Ronaldo, 36, winner of five Golden Balls, broke several historical records at the international and club levels.
