Which football players have played soccer in the top division in Serie A (Italy), La Liga (Spain) and Premiership (England)?
Didier Deschamps (captain of France in their 1998 World Cup victory) – 124 games for Juventus in Serie A from 1994-99, 27 for Chelsea from 1999-2000, before finishing his career at Valencia where he made 8 appearances in La Liga.
Patrick Kluivert (Dutch striker) – 27 games for AC Milan in 1997-98, 182 for Barcelona in La Liga from 1998-2004, then 25 for Newcastle in the 2004-05 Premiership season. He completed the set when he joined Everton in 1999, where he played 43 games. He now plays back home in Holland.. played 18 games for Barcelona in 2004 before returning to Italy, and he now plays for Tottenham Hotspur in the Premiership where he has played 40 times.
I had a good think and managed to come up with a handful… Abel Xavier (Portuguese full-back recently banned for failing a drugs test) – 8 games for Bari in the 1995-96 Italian season, followed by 58 games in La Liga for Oviedo between 1996 and 1998. Since then he has returned to Spain where he has played for various clubs, including a return to Zaragoza.
Edgar Davids (Dutch midfielder who plays in goggles!) – 15 games for AC Milan from 1996-98, with a lot more for Juventus after that… He then returned to Spain to play for Valencia, but has since moved back to Holland.
Christian Karembeu (French defender) – played for Sampdoria in Serie A from 1995-97, Real Madrid in La Liga from 1997-2000, and Middlesbrough in England in the 2000-01 season.
Michael Reiziger (Dutch full-back) – 10 games for AC Milan between 1996 and 1997, 173 for Barcelona in La Liga from 1997-2004, and 22 games for Middlesbrough (seems to be a theme!) in 2004-05 season. He also played for Liverpool and AS Roma, and currently plays for Middlesbrough.
Savo Milosevic (Serbian striker) – 91 games for Aston Villa in England from 1995-98, 72 for Real Zaragoza in Spain from 1998-2000 and 31 for Parma in Serie A from 2000-01
