Valery Voronin and Pele

Valery Voronin was a midfield player who was ahead of his time. Stylish and technically adroit, his individualist persona was frequently in conflict with the team ethic demanded of Soviet footballers at the time of his playing career.

Voronin joined FC Torpedo Moskva's youth team at 15 and was in the first team two years later. He won the league championship twice, was domestic footballer of the year in 1964 and 1965 and scored five goals in his 67 internationals including appearances at the FIFA World Cup finals of 1962 and 1966.
