Certainly one of the best footballers ever, such a combination of strength and speed was matched only by George Weah. Gullit played first years of his career as sweeper but he mainly played as second striker or offensive midfielder. He was often used in right midfield and later even central midfield. Unfortunately serious knee problems cut short his splendid career. Midfielder with strong offensive propulsion but also striker and winger if necessary, Gullit, with his acceleration, assists and goals quickly became an idol of Milan fans. Powerful in progressions and conclusions with head and foot, always decisive with his contribution of assists and goals. Very fast player who run 100 meters in 11 seconds, extremely powerful and with impressive jump, he was impossible to mark. Known for his flying headers, able to produce strong and precise shots with his head and had amazing elevation out of common for normal human being. Gifted technically with good dribbling at full speed, able to produce excellent passes and good shooter. He had very strong shot, not always accurrate but very skillful from volleys and high balls. Also effective free kick taker, able to curl the ball and kick it strong. Very mobile and tireless, pressing the opponents all over the field, the leader on pitch with excellent tactical awareness and sense of positioning in the box but also good defensive contribution. Same as with Rijkaard, no weak points, except he was prone to injuries with his problematic knees and his character and self confidence which Fabio Cappello didn't like. But at the end Gullit proved he was right and Cappello wrong for writing him off with statements he's finished player because of his knees. With the Rossoneri, Ruud won three league titles, two Champions Cups, two Intercontinental Cups, 2 European Super Cups and three Italian.

What a pity he left national team right before WC94. I believe he could help Netherland defeat Brazil in quarter-final round. The young Bergkamp and the old couple Koeman-Rijkaard were not enough. Diego Maradona was also banned a bit later then the tournament only remained new rising super stars Romario and Roberto Baggio.
