32nd anniversary of Di Stéfano’s Super Ballon d’Or triumph

25 Dec 2021

Alfredo Di Stéfano was named the Super Ballon d’Or on December 24, 1989, as France Football paid tribute to the madridista legend’s career. Because the French magazine only bestowed the honor once, Saeta Rubia, who beat out Johan Cruyff and Michel Platini for the award, is the only player to have received it.

The greatest player of all time captained the Real Madrid team that won the club’s first five European Cups in succession and etched his name in the history books while wearing the Whites’ jersey. During his playing career, Di Stéfano won the Ballon d’Or in 1957 and 1959.
