Clarence Seedorf will rightly go down in Champions League history as one of the competition's greatest-ever players.
Now playing in Brazil with Botafogo, Seedorf began his career all the way back in the last century with Ajax. Playing as an attacking central and right-sided midfielder for Louis van Gaal, Seedorf first won the Champions League in 1995 as a mere 19-year-old.
He then moved to Real Madrid in 1996 and became central to the Los Blancos side that won "the cup with big ears" in 1998.
One year later, and he was on the move again. This time he joined Inter Milan, but he did not taste real success until he swapped the famous blue and black stripes of Inter for the famous red and black stripes of Milan.
In 2003, Seedorf became the first player in history to win the UCL three times with three different clubs when AC Milan beat Juventus after penalties. He then got to lift the trophy again in 2007 when AC Milan got their revenge on Liverpool after losing out to the Reds in 2005.
Seedorf has shown great flexibility during his 21-year career. He went from attacking midfielder to box-to-box midfielder to veteran defensive midfielder as he aged. At his best, he was an attacking midfielder par excellence.
The Champions League has seen many similar players, with Valencia's Gaizka Mendieta and Liverpool's Steven Gerrard springing to mind.
