    Cim Bom picks its first South American to complete the starting XI:

    Fernando Redondo



    One of the best all around midfielders ever. He was best known for his days in Real Madrid in the 90's. Although he only played in Madrid for 5 years, he managed to win la liga and the champions league twice each, becoming the Champions League MVP for the second campaign. He had amazing skill on the ball once causing Alex Ferguson to say about him: "What does the boy have in his boots? A magnet?" His international carreer never took off because of Daniel Passarella's idiotic no long hair policy, he only played only 48 times for Argentina. He went to Milan from Madrid.

    His move to AC Milan did not go according to plan, and after only his first week of training he injured his knee, and looked set to miss six months of the season. He had to have surgey on his knee, and he looked set to make a good recovery. But the injury struck again and he missed another six months. In one year of football at Milan, he had not yet played. Redondo then did something that in todays era of footballing superstars in unheard of, he decided to renounce his salary of £52, 000 a week. He said that if he was not playing, he did not deserve to be paid. His exact words were:

    "I came to Milan to play. Milan must only pay me when that's what I am doing"

    His finest moment in Milano came again in the CL when he scored this spectacular goal agaisnt the Mancs in the semis on the way to his third CL title.

    He was the master of volleys. Whenever there was a cross, and saw him in/near the penalty box with his legged cocked, it was over.

    Legend is an overused word, but Shankly fits that word to a 'T'.

    Love some of his comments about Liverpool's crosstown rivals, Everton:

    "If Everton were playing at the bottom of the garden, I'd pull the curtains."

    "There are only two teams in Liverpool; Liverpool and Liverpool Reserves."

    Shankly was the complete antithesis of today's game which is ruled by money - he was a socialist at heart and there are many stories of his generosity to the fans, not to mention his great character which dragged Liverpool from the depths of the second division to the top of the 1st division summit.

    A great choice as manager.

    Matthias Sammer



    Remember seeing Sammer play in Euro 96 and he was an absolute revelation - a sensational player who plays the libero role, but can really play anywhere along the defensive line and can also be slotted into midfield. Sammer won European player of the year in 1996 and has won a shedload of trophies - as a winner of European player of the year he sits between George Weah, who won it in '95 and Ronaldo, who won it in '97, so that's pretty august company. For a defender to win that award it shows just how good he was. He was virtually unpassable as a defender - cruelly his career was cut short by serious injury. Sammer was as near to Franco Baresi as I ever saw anyone ever get.

    Titles won:

    DDR-Oberliga (2): 1989, 1990
    FDGB Pokal (1): 1990
    Bundesliga (3): 1992, 1995, 1996
    DFB-Supercup (3): 1992, 1995, 1996
    European Championship (1): 1996; Runner-up 1992
    UEFA Champions League (1): 1997
    Intercontinental Cup (1): 1997
    European Super Cup: Runner-up 1997

    Awards

    German Footballer of the Year (2): 1995, 1996
    European Footballer of the Year (1): 1996

    I can't rememebr what we said about players who were also coaches, if I remember correctly we said the same person could be one 2 teams: one as coach, and another as player.

    TG11 if I'm wrong tell me and I'll pick someone else.

    My next pick for manager is

    FRANZ BENCKENBAUER - GERMANY - MANAGER



    Only person to have won the WC as a captain and as a manager.

    FIFA World Cup - 1990
    French football division 1 - 1991
    Bundesliga - 1994
    UEFA Cup - 1996

    I shall select my manager now...

    Bob Paisley



    Truly an unbelievable career, all with one team over a span of nearly half a century. A player, coach, and ultimately manager with Liverpool, from 1974 to 1983 he led Liverpool to six league titles, three European cups, one UEFA cup and three league cups, five Community Shields and a UEFA SuperCup.

    Great quote from him: "Mind you, I've been here during the bad times too - one year we came second."
