21Best - Michael Laudrup
Michael Laudrup is a now retired Danish footballer that had a stint at Barcelona as a member of Johan Cruyff’s “Dream Team”. He won nine trophies with the Club including four straight La Liga titles. In an unprecedented move in 1994, he moved to Spanish rivals Real Madrid, where he
would win his fifth title in a row.
Laudrup was capable of playing anywhere although he was most often used as an attacking midfielder, known for his incredible pace and his effectiveness on the ball. Laudrup had initially made his move to Barcelona after a difficult season with Juventus, and he immediately bought in to Johan Cruyff’s philosophy, finding great success under his leadership and pushing to becoming the Barca legend he is today.
