Carlos Puyol is an inspirational footballer. A hero really in Barcelona. Puyol is a Barcelona star defender and Spanish international. Is there a better defender and leader in all of world soccer? I don’t think so. Puyol not only is a tough and tireless defender but he also knows how to play with the ball at his feet – he doesn’t just clear the ball up field when he’s under pressure. But Puyol’s greatest qualities are his desire to win and fight for his team. His passion for the game and playing it the right way is contagious. What a I love most about Puyol though is how he treats his teammates and former teammates like Ronaldinho.
