    Dear Arifatih,
    I was wondering on a similar note,, Famous lines said by “The Greatest” Muhammad Ali (he often referred to himself as the greatest and his famous opening lines for the publicity of a fight was “I am the Greatest”) for the greatest footballer Pele. Since the popularization of sport through the technology and information boom, the word great has often been overused and wasted. Any sport which had a good fan base is now shown all across the globe through satellite television or the internet. None more than football (since there are about 5 billion people following the World Cup).There is no play, no foul, no player unknown or unreported. Now a player who would be termed as good or sometimes even average is tagged as great.
