Steve MCMANAMAN | 1994-1997 & 2001-2002

Postby Brezza » 2008 Dec 11, 14:30

Name: Steven McManaman

Nickname: "Macca"

Image

Club: Liverpool FC




INFO:

One of the most talented English wingers of his generation, Steve McManaman had a career spanning two of European football's most successful club sides in Liverpool and Real Madrid.

He was the first British player to win the UEFA Champions League title twice, and is the first of only two English footballers to win the Champions League with a non-English club.

The former Anfield favourite had the ability to stretch defences with his close control, deceptive pace and clever link play which earned him an incredible assist rate. He was also able to score some spectacular goals such as the scissor kick volley for Madrid in the 2000 Champions League Final, and score from numerous solo runs.

INFO:

For Real Madrid fans, Steve MacManaman, or Macca, as we all used to call him, is more than a skinny, rather pacey, skilled winger, brought from a country that barely enters la Liga.

He was a key player when it came to adding some speed and determination in Real´s attack, a perfect combination with Raúl´s strikes, Morientes´ headers, Figo´s feints and Zidane´s mastermind. The quiet, red-faced talisman that few acknowledged as such.

Macca was a player made for tense moments, such as the final against Valencia in Champions League, in 2000. One of the few that have faced two teams from the same country. Morientes opened the marker in min. 40, but the Che team was constantly surrounding the inexperienced Casillas, what led to a nervous state of mind, until no other than Macca scored a beautiful goal that calmed the team and encouraged a young star, Raúl, to score one of the best goals ever scored in a Champions League final, near that of Zidane´s in 2002, where Macca once again proved to be a sort of "hidden talisman", as I already stated.

With Real Madrid, he won 2 Champions League, 2 Ligas, 1 Inter-Continental Cup, 1 Europe Super Cup and 1 Spanish Supercup, scoring 19 goals and giving 29 away to his teammates, from 1999 to 2003, the year he decided to return home, to Manchester City, where he would end a succesful career.

One of the few British players that have shined in la Liga, a major accomplishment, for sure.

Enjoy!

i think it's more drible speed that should come down, he wasn´t fast with the ball but he kept it very close

Macca definitely had some pace but your right he beat players with his close control rather dribbling though them at pace. His style is pretty similar to Joe Cole's in a way, so Ive lower dribble speed to his 84 ;)

Updated his Real Madrid era... added Colours, Info and some Vids. I'm still open to suggests, of course. ;)

Underrated his top speed, but I wouldnt say his was quite that fast on the ball id probably swap DA and DS at the most. Teamwork suits his real madrid era more also.

Could someone update Real Madrid's set?
He was important player in Del Bosque team, he played as good as Beckham in Real, I think he was more important than David.
Sorry for my English
