Home Forums Game Discussion Summoners War : Sky Arena (Thailand) Seedorf, the footballing version of Hulk with a unique Champions League record

  • Throughout his playing career, Clarence Seedorf never tired of sbo222 winning titles.The Dutchman had unique qualities that made him the perfect example of what a midfielder should be: quality control and passing range, a formidable physique and a thunderous strike from distance.In short, a player who was able to produce moments of magic any time the ball reached his feet. He had the opportunity to play for many historic clubs such as Ajax, Real Madrid and AC Milan, and enjoy some magical moments with them.’Il Professore’ shares, along with Samuel Eto’o, a unique record in the Champions League: the only men to win Europe’s premier club competition with three different teams.His leadership and professionalism was also always evident during his career. Seedorf was born in Suriname on April 1, 1976 and with a Dutch passport, soon learned to live with the highest pressure that was placed upon him.At just 17 years old, he became sbo222 one of the key figures in a fantastic Ajax side.In 1995, he won his first Champions League title when Louis van Gaal conquered the continent with his team of young stars including Patrick Kluivert, Frank De Boer, Edgar Davids, Finidi George and Marc Overmars. He later left for a season with Sampdoria, along with Christian Karembeu, who would also join him at Real Madrid a year after Seedorf arrived.Although he was just 20, Los Blancos decided to pay 600 million pesetas to get their man and he’d become a fundamental part of Fabio Capello’s project.In his first season with the No. 10 on his back, the Dutchman won the league title and the following year in 1997/98, was proclaimed a European champion again.He was sold to Inter in December 1999 for a fee of 24 million euros and remained for two and a half years before crossing the city divide to enjoy the best spell of his career with AC Milan. In 2003, he won the Champions League once again by overcoming Juventus and added a fourth before he retired by beating Liverpool in the final four years later.His record as a player is enviable: he won the Champions League with Ajax, Real Madrid and Milan (twice), the Intercontinental Cup, Club World Cup and league titles in the Netherlands, Spain and Italy.As a coach, his experience has so far been rather short as was charged with hauling the Rossoneri out of a deep crisis but lasted just 22 games in charge. Now, he takes charge of struggling Deportivo and kicks off his tenure on Monday night.
