The Danish striker (Frederiksberg, 1964) arrived at Barça in 1989 from Juventus, where he had failed to impress. Everything changed when he came to the Camp Nou. He seemed able to effortlessly and seamlessly produce skilful play after skilful play.Michael Laudrup was the complete player with his effortless dribbling ability, eye for a killer pass and composed finishing. He featured for four of Europe's grandiose clubs Juve, Barca, Real Madrid and Ajax and was part of the exciting Danish team of the mid-eighties that won over so many fans. He was the natural heir to Johan Cryuff and the precursor of Lionel Messi, all virtuoso performers who did their best work attacking the central areas from deep and wide. He was a master of the one on one and had amazing vision, providing sensational assists without so much having to lift an eyebrow. In his time, he was considered the finest passer of the ball in the world. The Barça fans were well aware of this, and for years there was a famous banner reading "Enjoy Laudrup hanging in the Camp Nou terraces". He also scored some stunning goals, totalling 93 in 288 games for Barça. Along with that, he left the club having won a host of major titles. After a season of confrontations with the coaching staff, he signed for Real Madrid in summer 1994. But despite that astonishing move, the magic of “Enjoy” will never be forgotten at the club."
