Oranje legend Marco van Basten began playing football with local side EDO aged just seven, where his extraordinary talent soon came to the fore.
Powerful yet sublimely skilled, Van Basten debuted for the Amsterdam giants aged 18 in April 1982, coming on as a substitute for another Dutch icon in Johan Cruyff.
Marco van Basten was top scorer in the Eredivisie for 4 seasons running between 1983-1987 - his best season was in 1985/86 where he racked up 37 goals in 25 games, winning the European Golden boot. In his final season in Amsterdam he scored 47 goals in all competitions, and scored the goal that won the Cup Winners Cup.
Plagued by injury it’s testament to Van Basten’s ability that he still achieved so much. Quite possibly the most complete number-nine of all time, Van Basten combined pace, power and an intimidating six-foot-two frame with an adhesive touch, all-round technique and deadly finishing. When on form, it made him near unplayable. By the time AC Milan came calling he was the hottest property in world football.
