I'd place Zico's complete technical mastery in your ("1. Maradona, 2. Zidane, 3. Ronaldinho, 4. Baggio) bracket.

Zico had a superb touch on the ball and a great passing range, but he isn't in the top bracket in technique.

Zico may not possess the ‘grace’ of Zidane, the ‘fluid’ mastery on the ball as Baggio, or the ‘ball skills’ of Ronaldinho but very few can match his complete football technique. That’s why he must be in the top bracket.

Passing, shooting, first touch, turning, volleys, ball control, dribbling, free kicks...
Football technique is a range (of which you could say Zico is one of the greatest in each facet).

For me there were 4 players with God given technique. Messi, Maradona, Zidane and Cryuff. Purely on natural technique. If I had to pick one it would be Maradona.

But I'll give a name you may not have heard of. Vincze Ottó has technique that is just other worldly. Barcelona did buy him but he never made it out of the 'B' team. I made a video of his touches, goals, assists and people thought he was going to be a world star. The problem was similar to Le Tissier... But many games he'd do jack and then put in a MOTM performance or score a wonder goal to win a game. Back in 2004 Matthäus said 'here's your chance' in a must win home match against Bulgaria. He really turned it on in the first half. Looked amazing... Received high praise at HT. Didn't even touch the ball in the 2nd half. He was taken off early. He completely ran out of gas.

That has nothing to do with his technique.
