    In the past 10 years where teams have gone up to the next level as units I'd take a peak Iniesta over a peak Zidane. But anytime prior I'd take Zidane.

    Although I'd take Salah over both, obviously.

    Pogba on his best day was nowhere near as good as Zidane on his worst day. And I'd have Iniesta in EwingFC before either of 'em!

    Dippers would take Ruddock over either of 'em!

    It’s like the difference between Silva and de Bruyne.

    Silva keeps the possession ticking. He can run the tempo of the game and set the tone as well as when getting the lead being instrumental in keeping it.

    de Bruyne just has that something extra. That killer ball that nobody else sees, that command of being the match winner.

    I think Iniesta is Silva and Zidane is de Bruyne.

    Looking for the orange one
    Some absolute whoppers on this thread.

    Iniesta was the better player.

    I was going to just say Zidane but I don't think it's a fair comparison.

    As City fans watching Silva being ignored until recent years, we should know there are certain players with a subtle brilliance to their game that can only be fully appreciated by extensive viewing and even then it's sometimes hard to pick out moments and put them into words, to do them justice. With Zidane all of that is easy, there was nothing subtle about his game, he left players on the deck completely bamboozled and scored some belters, that are easy to pick out and describe.
