Michael Laudruphad an amazing football career that took him to clubs like Lazio, Juventus, Barcelona, Real Madrid and many more. He's considered to be the greatest footballing export out of Denmark but his career was not plain sailing especially at Barcelona. He played for eight clubs over a 17-year period as a professional footballer and he spent the most part of his professional football career at Barcelona. He was part of the Barcelona team that won the European Cup for the first time in the club's history at the end of the 1991/92 season.

Barcelona recorded their first European Cup title triumph by beating Italian team Sampdoria in the final. The Spanish giants won by a lone goal which was scored by Dutchman Ronald Koeman who's the current Barcelona manager. Michael Laudrup also won four La Liga titles at the Nou Camp in addition to two Spanish Super Cups. During his five-year spell at Barcelona, the Danish football legend was a one-time European Super Cup winner as well as a one-time Copa Del Rey winner. His time at Barcelona didn't end well after he fell out with manager Johann Cryuff.
His problems with then Barcelona boss Cryuff led to him being dropped from the squad for the 1994 European Cup final. In what's one of the most surprising result in the history of the final, a star-studded Barcelona were beaten 4-0 by Italian team AC Milan. According to The Guardian, Michael Laudrup was begged not to leave the club in 1994 by Pep Guardiola who was left in tears as a result of the Danish football icon's decision to leave Barcelona after he had fallen out with Johann Cryuff.
After his Barcelona career, Michael Laudrup played for their arch rivals Real Madrid as well as Vissel Kobe FC of Japan and Ajax Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
