5 legends we’d love to see as A-League marquees

-

The A-League has seen some real stars of the game grace the competition over the years as international marquees.

While they arrived down under far from their primes, there’s no doubting the impact legends like Alessandro Del Piero, Dwight Yorke uh, Emile Heskey have had on Australian football. Who could be next to our shores?

It never hurts to dream.

Ronaldinho

The man who inspired a whole generation of football fans across the globe. Owner of some of the fanciest feet in the history of the game, the Brazilian never failed to wow a crowd every time he took to the pitch. At 35 he seems close to the end of his career and several A-League clubs reportedly turned down the chance to sign him this season.

Oh what could have been? He’s known to love the nightlife and would have been right at home in Australia. If he ever signs with your club, lock up your wives.

Likely location: Sydney FC.

Frank Lampard

Another who was close to joining the A-League, Lampard looked set to follow David Villa and sign with Melbourne City on loan from brother club New York City last season. Instead he returned to England to play for Manchester City. Although his booming trademark deep runs into the box aren’t as regular as they used to be, Lampard showed he’s still as capable as he’s always been. A true gentleman, he would still be a real asset on and off the field.

Likely location: Melbourne City.

Peter Crouch

Perhaps not quite as revered around the world as someone like Ronaldinho but Crouch has a much different set of skills to offer that could entice interest. His gangly frame is hard to contain and his silky technique for such a big bloke is rare. Easy to see him banging in the goals. Has recently found it hard to crack Stoke’s first team as manager Mark Hughes transitions from route-one to tiki-taka Basque football.

Likely location: Perth Glory.

Robbie Keane

Still wiry and tenacious as ever, Keane hasn’t let age slow him down and can’t stop scoring in the States. Could see him keeping that run going if he’s brought down under.

Potential to be a cult figure at any A-League club with his winning personality and an eye for a winning goal.

Likely location: Newcastle Jets.

Nicolas Anelka

A striker who has donned the jersey of some of the world’s biggest clubs and rightfully so. Don’t expect him to stick around for too long though. He’s never been the most likeable of players but he could be handy for a club in need of a short fix.

Likely location: Melbourne Victory.
