The 'Bunny Hop' man will be missing at this WC
Cuauhtemoc Blanco did not make the 26 man roster that coach Ricardo La Volpe announced today, from which Mexico will choose its final 23 players for its World Cup campaign. Blanco had many run ins, showing a strong disdain for Volpe's coaching style.
Blanco is best known for introducing the 'Bunny Hop' style of dribbling, in which he would scoop the ball between his feet and leap over tackling players with the ball still ensconed in that position. This unique move was introduced against South Korea in the 1998 WC.
He was also a bit old school, one of the rare players to still wear snow-white boots. He was also an exceptional player, one of Mexico's best and a colorful personality.
