David Beckham isn't fit to lace their boots if you are comparing him with them as central midfielders/playmakers. Figo and Zidane have incredible skill and the former is about as cultured a 2 footed player as there is. Zidane is in a league of his own IMO. Beckham has no left foot, can't beat his man. He is arguably the best crosser in the world, and one of the best free kick specialists, top 3 in the world. But as a playmaker? He's only as good Paul Scholes IMO. His best position is as a wide right midfielder.
