Gabriel ‘Batigol’ Batistuta.
There wasn’t a keeper worth his salt who Batistuta didn’t score past in the eighties, nineties and noughties.
He scored more than 200 club goals in Argentina, Italy and Qatar as well as helping himself to 54 goals in just 77 international caps.
But who was the best goalkeeper the Argentina international ever faced?
He’s not short of a glovesman or two (or three) to choose from.
Gianluigi Buffon? Peter Schmeichel? Edwin van der Sar? Oliver Khan? Nope, nope, nope and nope.
The best goalkeeper Batistuta faced throughout his career was Italy international Francesco Toldo.
Toldo spent most of his career with Fiorentina and Inter Milan as well as making 28 appearances for Italy.
In an interview with FIFA, Batistuta said: “Oh god. Let’s say Toldo.”
The duo’s paths crossed when Batistuta signed for Fiorentina in 1993 and again when the striker moved to Inter in 2003.
So there might have been a bit of bias involved in Batistuta’s decision, given they spent nearly a decade in the same teams.
But, regardless of any favouritism, we would have paid to watch those two go head-to-head in training every day.
