Yesterday Jerzy Dudek turned 44 another birthday. And what better way to celebrate than picking the best XI players he’s played with on Fantasy Football Club. His team – of Liverpool, Real Madrid and Manchester United players – was made up of pundits, managers and “nice guys”.
At the back Liverpool’s Jamie Carragher was very good at waking people up
His commitment to the team. He was always a great character. You love to have someone in the dressing room like him. He was always waking up people when we needed it.
Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo is the best pro but also not a good team player
I think he is a great example of how to be a good professional. He was first in the dressing room and he left the dressing room last. He was always preparing himself very well into the game. In the dressing room before the big games like Barcelona he was motivating people. Of course sometimes he’s too ambitious. He is a team player but sometimes he’s losing this.
Manchester United Ruud Van Nistelrooy’s kicked the sh1t out of him
Our friendship starts in Holland. When he went to Manchester United he scored something like his record of nine games in a row. When I came to Madrid he was kicking me even in training sessions and trying to take the ball off me. He was a very good finisher.
