Roma 2001 - No.10 Totti.


Francesco Totti is the epitome of the "one club man" having notched up 21 seasons at Roma. Born and raised a Giallorossi, the current captain is considered by many diehard fans Roma's greatest player ever.
He is the number-one goalscorer, and second all-time in league history, with 228 goals and the most capped player in the club's history with over 550 appearances.

Totti began to play youth team football at the age of 8, with Fortitudo. After coming to the attention of scouts, his mother refused a lucrative offer from AC Milan to remain in his hometown, and he joined the Roma youth squad in 1989.
After three years on the youth team, Totti made his first appearance for Roma's senior side at the age of sixteen.

His primary position is that of a trequartista, though he has also been successfully utilized as a lone striker.
Often referred to as Il Re di Roma (The King of Rome), the highlight of Totti's club career is the Serie A title in 2001.  
Although European success for his club eluded him, Totti was a World Cup winner in 2006. He has won many individual awards, including a record five Italian Footballer of the Year awards and two Serie A Footballer of the Year awards.

Roma recently announced that Totti had signed a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2016, at which time he would be 39 years old. The deal is worth €3.2 million per season and also includes a clause that will give Totti a managerial position with his hometown club once he stops playing.

Crystal Palace.


Founded in 1905 Crystal Palace initially played their games in the grounds of The Crystal Palace, inspiration for the club's initial nickname, "The Glaziers", but the First World War saw them forced to move out, and since 1925, Palace have played their home games at Selhurst Park. Although a South London team, Palace have a fierce rivalry with M23 neighbours Brighton & Hove Albion, with whom they have contested the M23 derby 98 times.


The club were relatively late in establishing a crest. Although the initials were embroidered onto the shirt from the 1935–36 season, a crest featuring the façade of the Crystal Palace did not appear until 1955. The Seventies saw a new nickname, "The Eagles", being adopted, inspired by Portuguese club Benfica, and the badge depicted an eagle holding a ball. This emblem remained until 1987 when the club married the eagle with the Crystal Palace façade, and although updated in 1996 and again in 2013 the crest retains these features.

Kashima Antlers 1994 - No.10 Zico.


Zico is still considered one of the most revered figures in Japan’s football history, despite a roller-coaster timeline of events.
Although one of the best players ever to kick a football, he was known as a difficult character in the changing rooms, where his disrespect for the manager and spats towards his fellow teammates for their perceived lack of professionalism and determination for winning have become legendary, some of the traits that have led supporters of the Ibaraki club to don banners and flags reading, “Spirit of Zico,” suggesting that he is the sole reason the club is where it is today.

Ajax 1982 - No.14 Cruyff.


After his spell in the USA and a short-lived stay at UD Levante in Spain, Cruyff returned to play in his homeland, rejoining Ajax on 30 November 1980 as "technical advisor" to Leo Beenhakker, but within a year he was back playing and led Ajax to the league title in 1982 and 83.

One notable incident from this era was a famous goal he scored against Helmond Sport in 1982. Ajax were awarded a penalty which Cruyff went to take but instead of shooting at goal, he nudged the ball sideways to his Ajax teammate Jesper Olsen who in return passed it back to Cruyff who tapped the ball into the empty net, as Otto Versfeld, the bemused Helmond goalkeeper, looked on.

Atletico Madrid 1996 - No.19 Kiko.


In 1987, controversial politician and businessman Jesús Gil became club president, running the club until his resignation in May 2003.
His desire was to turn Atleti into a major force in Spain and abroad, and spent heavily to achieve this. In the process Gil developed a ruthless reputation due to the manner in which he ran the club, hiring and firing managers in quick succession.
Atletico were sponsored by the Marbella Tourism Board for much of Gil's tenure as he was mayor of Marbella at this time.

In the 1994–95 league campaign, the club barely avoided relegation with a draw on the last matchday of the season. The narrow escape prompted yet another head coaching change along with a wholesale squad clearance during the summer 1995 transfer window that saw many players being shown the door. Somewhat unexpectedly, in the following season, newly arrived head coach Radomir Antić finally delivered the much sought after league title as Atlético won the La Liga/Copa del Rey double.

Kiko, a centre forward with tremendous technical ability and field vision who until then had been more familiar with relegation scraps than title challenges, starred in a title run which few could imagine being repeated today even by a more star-studded Atléti team. The Spaniards 11 goals that year only tell part of the story, with his all-round contribution to the team capped by a late-season double against Salamanca which effectively sealed the title.
