Alfredo Di Stefano Passes Away at 88 Years of Age

Alfredo Di Stefano was not only a living legend of the world in his times but considered to be the best all-round player of football on the scene. 

"Real Madrid C. F. regrets to announce that its Honorary President, Alfredo Di Stéfano, passed away today at 17:15 in the General Universitario Gregorio Marañón Hospital in Madrid," the club said in a statement.   

He died while in a comatose state after having suffered a cardiac arrest. From the mid 50s to 1960, he consecutively won five cups. Sir Alex Ferguson contends to this day that he was one of those great, great players on the scene. 

Alfredo went on to describe his remarkable sense of stability and manner of unique talent. He was a hero not just on the field but a gentleman off it too. 

He was a source of intense inspiration and a beacon of hope for Real Madrid. His loss is such that it has left a vacuum in the place where he used to be. And this is a hole that no one can fill. 

What a terrible thing for such a talented and wonderful player to leave us bereft of his presence in this world. Real Madrid called Alfredo "the greatest player of all time".

So many people were on friendly terms with Stefano. They recounted details of the times they spent in his company. He was a man who was good to know and made Real Madrid proud of the achievements he accomplished on the football field. 

As the man who truly reformed football into a great game, Alfredo’s star shined brightly and beautifully in the sky. People of his caliber and status seldom enter the Global Village. 

A soft-spoken and worldly-wise person, Stefano ruled the roost during the peak of his career. Stefano was an Argentine like Maradona and he proved his mettle via his special skills. 

It is a famous fact that Stefano lauded Zinedine Zidane as the ideal person he saw today who most resembled him in his demeanor and style of playing the game. 

After Alfredo Di Stefano’s death, everyone playing at or watching the World Cup feels sad since a man who entertained the sports world has left this life for the next forever.
