‘A’ played the most important years of his career at Everton FC. Playing deep in the midfield, he enjoyed decent success growing as a great tackler of the game. After four years at the club, he moved to Real Madrid where he spent just a season before moving back to UK. He had later returned back to Everton on loan for a season. He is now a retired footballer.
Many consider ‘B’ as the greatest ever foreign player to play for the club ‘A’ played when he returned from Real Madrid. ‘B’ suffered a horrible injury at his time at the club, wherein he broke his leg in a match in 1999. He even spent a loan spell at Manchester United before retiring from football.
Another footballer who suffered a leg break similar to ‘B’ was ‘C’, who played three years at Anfield. He was loaned out to a French club for a season where he eventually ended up at the starting of the next season. He played for that club for another two years. He had a very successful spell for a Greek club where he smashed 47 goals in 61 league appearances.
‘D’ played 10 years at the starting of his career with that same Greek club for which ‘C’ was so successful. The defensive midfielder played a season for an English club in which Tony Adams was involved with the management side. He has represented his country 100 times, having captained the team. He is only the second player in his country to have earned 100 caps.
‘E’ is another player who has played more than 100 games for his country. He was a prolific midfielder at a top club in Spain where he played 205 times. He had two spells of three years each at PSV before and after his spell at Spain. Boudewijn Zenden was his team-mate in his spell at that Spanish club.
