Boca Juniors 1997 - No.10 Riquelme.
In 1997 Boca's favourite son Diego Maradona, dogged by scandal and controversy, played his last game for the club. His legacy and shirt number was handed to Argentina's new prodigy, Juan Roman Riquelme.
Echoing Maradona, starting at Argentinos Juniors, then Boca and moving to Europe with Barcelona, the 'Lazy Magician' has had a turbulent career. Finding form with Villareal after bing bombed out of the Nou Camp, Riquelme shone and was unfortunate not to lead them into the final of the 2006 Champions league.
But another tense situation led Riquelme back to legendary status at his hometown club in Argentina.
