Michael Laudrup

 

The word ‘brilliant’ is overused in talking about football’s greats. But if ever there were a player that encapsulated shades of Johan Cruyff’s technique, the journeyman status of George Best, and the vision of Zinedine Zidane, it was Michael Laudrup.

 The comparisons are bold, bordering on assuming, but they too are justified. The Danish midfield maestro is widely regarded as one of the best players of his generation and arguably the greatest player ever to hail from Danish shores. Laudrup belongs to an iconic yet unheralded generation of players that may not receive the prestige or superstar status the modern footballer today demands but could very well play amongst today’s mercurial talents in their prime.

From his early days at Copenhagen club Kjøbenhavns Boldklub and their famed Danish rivals Brøndby, Laudrup displayed the poise, technical ability, and vision that would see him and a generation of Danish footballers take their talents to some of the most revered clubs in European football.

At club level, Michael Laudrup’s magnitude as a player is perhaps best measured in the quality of the sides he featured in: Lazio, Juventus, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Ajax and even Japanese club Vissel Kobe. Having become teammates with so many era-defining players – Michel Platini, Ronald Koeman, Hristo Stoichkov, Pep Guardiola, Romário, Iván Zamorano, Raúl – only further cements his justifiable genius.

Take up the challenge and follow Michael's career path.

Rules:

    •    Load up Italy, Spain, Holland and any other country you like. 

    •    You can start in either of three countries listed above and manage any club. 

    •    You must then either buy in or use a player currently at your chosen club. He must be a Scandiwegian born (Norway, Sweden, Danish) Attacking Midfielder/Playmaker/Winger.  

    •     Your nominated player cannot be green in the striking positions and you cannot retrain him either. 

    •    You must complete 6 full seasons in Italy, 7 seasons in Spain and 1 in Holland. You can manage longer if an appropriate job doesn't come up but only set number of seasons will count as your score (e.g, you start in Holland and play 3 seasons before moving to Spain, only your first season score in Holland will count) 

    •    All goals and assists per season will make up your total, 14 seasons in total. 

    •     Usual other rules apply. 

 

Brian Laudrup

Brian Laudrup is probably one of the greatest players Denmark has ever had, not only due to his technical skills but also due to his speed and elegant movements when he dribbles.

These skills gave him a long and glorious career in FC Bayern München, ACF Fiorentina, AC Milan, Glasgow Rangers, Chelsea FC, FC Copenhagen and in the year of 2000 he finished his career at AFC Ajax Amsterdam.

Laudrup was elected a total of four times as the greatest player in Denmark, which is more than any other Danish player has achieved. Furthermore, he was awarded the same title in Scotland twice as the first none-British player given that honour.

Spectators respected him for his virtuoso dribbling and elegant break-through, as he also demonstrated in Sweden in July 1992 when Denmark won the European championship. On the national team, Brian Laudrup has played 82 games and made 21 goals.

Take up the challenge and follow Brian's career path.
