La Galerna del Cantábrico (The Gale of the Cantabrian Sea), as he was known, played outside-left and was noted not only for having great speed (he could run 100 meters in 11 seconds flat and was almost as quick with a ball at his feet), but also for his skills with the ball and his scoring prowess from the midfield position. He captained a young side, known in Spain as Ye-yé, because of the popularity of The Beatles at that time. He is regarded as one of Spain's greatest players and one of the greatest ever players in his position, Gento was an extremely fast left-winger, with excellent vision and technical ability, which made him an effective assist provider. In addition to his control and creative ability, he was also a goalscoring threat due to his striking ability from distance.

Maybe is better is we short the era , from the games that i see from him when he plays with Di Stefano we was a insane player but , when he plays with the Madrid "Ye-Ye" he was more slow and more a playmaker and leader to he's teammates.
If you wanna Verifed Just Take a look of Channel of Zouzinho in youtube , and see the difference beetwen him playing with Madrids of Di Stefano and Madrid of the "Ye-Ye", where he was a Spiritual Leader.

Also He's IT have to be in A , Di Stefano define Gento in these Words : " A Great Player and Athlete to the Club , with a incredible Speed , he almost never get injured and was the most regular player in the team".

The only player to win 6 European Cups. He was also the last player alive from that group (Di Stefano, Rial, Marquitos, Lesmes, Mateos) that won the first 5 European Cups. RIP
