Spanish football in the 90s was a very different place.
All of the best players belonged to either Real Madrid or Barcelona, and the two clubs were constantly locked in a two-way battle for the title, to the exclusion of all other – comparatively cash-starved – teams.
OK, so things haven’t changed all that much (and yes, Atletico have in the last couple of years turned Spain’s traditional two-horse race into a three-piece), but anyone who watched football in the 90s knows that things just felt different. You had characters, mavericks… outright lunatics in some cases.
Whilst La Liga wouldn’t had the same appeal without Cruyff’s all-conquering Dream Team, or the star-studded Real side that triumphed under Fabio Capello, no league, or club, is complete without its support cast. And we think forgotten stars like the ones on this list deserve a shout out too.
