I was talking to Hasan the other day and we started discussing which football players would we like to meet the most. I gave him my list, and then I realised that it would be a good idea to ask you guys, professional football fans, for your own top 5/10 list.

Here’s my list – you can add yours in the comments below.

My top 3:

  • 1. David Beckham
  • 2. Owen Hargreaves
  • 3. Michael Carrick

The rest (in no particular order):

  • Rio Ferdinand
  • Kevin Nolan
  • Fabio Cannavaro
  • Nemanja Vidic
  • Joe Cole
  • Michael Essien
  • Thierry Henry

Special Entry:

  • Robbie Keane ( 🙂 )


  • Roy Keane
  • Jose Mourinho
  • Frank Rijkaard
  • Alex Ferguson

There are more, but these were on the top of my head. I also think that several people on this list (like Canna) would probably drop off in a couple of years, and that while I’d love to interview just about any decent player, there are some you just can’t drop (Becks).

What about you? Which players/people would you want to meet the most?
