‘A’ played 10 successful years in a famous English club. He moved to a German club after that English spell which included years of captaining the club to various titles including one UEFA Cup. He is currently the captain of his national team. In his last match for the club, ‘A’ came in as a sub in the 84th minute replacing the captain. The captain personally tied the arm-band around his arm before leaving the ground. Interestingly, ‘A’s parents were both footballers.
‘B’ is of the same nationality as ‘A’. ‘B’ was part of a fine team winning the Champions League once. ‘B’ even played one year with ‘A’ in club football. One of the greatest footballer of our times, his jersey of that Europe winning team hangs in a Sports Museum in his country. He had a very short stint at a London club where he didn’t even play a single ‘league’ game for the club due to health reasons.
‘C’ managed the team ‘B’ played for, though not during the latter’s stay over there. A prolific midfielder of his time, he is one of the greatest players to ever play for his country. A very skillful player in his days, he played as a defensive midfielder and then as a ‘libero’. He was part of a successful Belgian club team. He has represented his country over 100 times.
‘D’ is of the same nationality as ‘C’. One of the greatest footballers of all time, he has won the best player for his country a record 4 times. He had a successful spell at a Scottish club and even a one-year spell at a London-based club. His brother was a professional footballer too.
‘E’ is probably one of the greatest players to have ever played for the Scottish club ‘D’ played for. A prolific goal-scorer which includes many league records, he even played 2 unsuccessful years in Sunderland before joining the Scottish club. Holder of an MBE, he has represented his country 61 times. He was once rejected by a very famous football manager for being ‘too small’ for a striker.
