Are there players who played all his life in a club? This question seems to answer complicated if we only rely on modern football where the sport king seen as business itself, usually a steady transfer of players from one club to another. But without going far, in football today are some cases of active players carrying their entire lives in a club or retired players in recent decades that never changed his club always money. Of the latter we remember five cases of five players who played all his life in a club.
One of the best defenses in the history of the sport. Paolo Maldini he swore undying love for his debut in Milan where 1984 and he retired in 2009, there is nothing. He played with Milan in 80, the 90 and the first decade of the century until his retirement already turned 40. An example of fidelity that may have played where wanted but never wanted to leave the club of his life with which he was part of one of the best teams in history.
2-Manolo Sanchis (son)
Sanchis was one of the members of the “fifth Vulture”, the hardest on the white club, the only one that got a Champions and the only one who played his entire career at Real Madrid. He debuted in the early 80, in 1983 and he left the house in Madrid 2001. Almost two decades in the service of a shirt that never changed.
Welsh is one of those examples of longevity and love about colors. Nothing more and nothing less than 23 years wearing a United shirt. He debuted in 1991 and he left in 2014 when he had gone from 40. Another player who spent his entire sporting life and grew as a person on the lawn of Old Trafford.
Puyol is a symbol of FC Barcelona. The central, possibly the best that has ever Spain, always he played professionally with a single shirt, of his Barca who dressed from the lower levels to the first team which won it all. He debuted in 1999 and he went in 2014 ballasting by injuries. A clear example of a feeling for colors.
5-Matthew Le Tissier
For Le Tissier has more merit if it fits the remaining players on the roster and the player English, He never left the Southamptom, a set that far from being pointer at the time and winning titles, he was a serious candidate for relegation always. However, and despite being coveted by half of Europe and the greats of English football, love never changed his shirt more pounds or more titles. Le Tissier as himself said: “Play in a great team and win titles but is a nice challenge to play against them and beat them it is more”.
