The art of fighting spirit
All of us football fans have different versions of what we believe to be the greatest part of the game. Generally we all just love football, but we all have something specific, something that can trigger our emotions that little bit extra. For me it’s moments like the “El Clasico” where Barca won 5-0, maybe in Istanbul where Liverpool beat AC Milan in the Champions league final after one of the craziest comebacks we have ever seen, also Liverpool beating Dortmund at Anfield after another crazy comeback and last but not least every time Brøndby beat FC Copenhagen in the “New Firm”. What does these games have in common? My answer to that question is – fighting spirit! That is why I decided to make a top five, of players with fighting spirit. Here it comes.
Heres is our top five in the art of fighting spirit:
The fighting spirited players, to me, are players who can pull their teammates up to help ensure the fans that they will fight to the end. We remember Steven Gerrard for what he did in every match he played for Liverpool. He scored, assisted and he shared his fighting spirit. He supported the colours every day of his career. Roy Keane did the same. I remember when Manchester United played Juventus in that specific Champions league match, he was so crazy in that match. Thomas Gravesen played at top-level for a while at Real Madrid, but he didn’t have the technical abilities for La liga. What he did have, was fucking fighting spirit. His time in Everton and the national team showed just that. Paul Gascoigne was a winner and he was delightfully crazy – the perfect match for British football. Gennaro Gattuso was also crazy. He was the engine at one of the greatest AC Milan teams ever though and his attitude speaks for it self.
