Michael Laudrup 1989-1994:
Edit

Michael Laudrup was the second danish player that played in FC Barcelona ever, in Denmark he is the most famous danish player ever. In 1989 Michael Laudrup joined FC Barcelona of Spain where he ejoyed tremendous success, with former Dutch national team captain Johan Cruijff the coach. Will he was in Juventus FC Barcelona noticed that he's playing style was diffrent, and he's playing style was more spanish. Michael Laudrup said himself I want to play for a team that's been number 2, and wants to get number 1. FC Barcelona was always number 2 behind Real Madrid, but after Johan Cruijff created The Dream Team FC Barcelona got the first place. Laudrup was one of the restricted three foreign players allowed in the team, alongside Dutch defender Ronald Koeman and Bulgarian striker Hristo Stoichkov, who were pillars of Barca coach Johan Cruijff Dream Team. The team won four consecutive La Liga championships from 1991-1994, as well as the 1991-1992 European Cup, and Laudrup was twice elected the best player of the year in Spain during his FC Barcelona years. When Barca hired a fourth foreign star player, Brazilian striker Romario in 1993 it meant the four foreigners would rotate as the three foreign players allowed in each match, and when Laudrup wasn't selected for the 1994 European Cup final 0-4 loss to AC Milan, his time in FC Barcelona was over. As Laudrup had said before 'i want to play for a team that's been number 2, and wants to get number 1 and in that time it was Real Madrid. In 1994, he completed a controversial move from FC Barcelona to Real Madrid after he fell out with Johan Cruijff. Laudrup went on to guide Real Madrid in a championship winning season that would end Barca stranglehold, making Laudrup the only player ever to win the Spanish League five times in a row playing for two different clubs. After the initial success at Real, a lacklustre season would be in store for the club. Despite only playing two seasons at Real Madrid, Laudrup was voted the 12th best player in Real Madrid history in an internet survey by Spanish newspaper Marca when the club celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2002. While playing for FC Barcelona he participated in the 5-0 victory over rivals Real Madrid in the 1993-94 season. The following season while playing for Real Madrid he aided in the revenge beating that Madrid gave Barca, the final score also being 5-0. He went on to play for Vissel Kobe in Japan, before he ended his playing career in a championship winning season at Dutch team Ajax in 1998. Following his retirement, Laudrup sometimes turned out to play for Lyngby's Old Boys Team in his spare time.
