Hugo Sanchez is the most highly decorated player in Mexico’s history. The man won La Liga 5 times, the European Cup once, and was named top scorer 5 out of his 8 years playing for Real Madrid. Which is why he earned the nicknames "Hugol" and "Pentapichichi" (literally, "five times top scorer"). Here at The18, though, we just like to think of him as one thing: El Rey de la Chilena. That’s “King of the Bicycle Kick” for us gringos.
Why, you ask, do we call him the king of that oh so impressive finishing technique? Oh, we don’t know, maybe it’s just because he was really f****** good at them. Just watch the top 10 goals of his career. You’ll understand.
Oh, for the chance to pull off just one of those in our lifetimes. One day, One day.
