Six Players Who Can Use Both Their Feet

Players are traditionally classified based on their stronger foot, that is, either left-footed or right-footed and to some extent plays a significant role in determining what position the player would end up playing from.

For instance, it is more natural for a left-footed player to play from the left side of the pitch, either as a left-back or a left-winger.

However, there are a couple of players who have the ability to use both their feet almost equally, that is, they are ambipedal.

These players were either born with the ability to use both feet or gained the ability as a result of training their weaker foot.

Whatever the case may be these players have an edge over other players who can only use one foot, which means that they can be deployed on either side of the pitch and they will deliver.

In this article, we are going to look at six of these players who are able to use both their feet almost to perfection.
