I've met a few, Giggs was my best experience, meeting the legend was unbelievable. I will cherish that day forever. Gary Pallister and Keano were with him aswell, I think it was some form of benefit dinner party. I didn't get chance to talk to Keano though. I was around 14 at the time.

Quite a few, yes.

The most important memory, however, was meeting Vasques and Jesus Correia, both true legenda of our club and country, both part of the Five Violins, which was our offensive line during the 40s and early 50s, and they were given that nickname because of the way their football was in sinch with each other.
Imagine meeting Sir Bobby Charlton, that's pretty much what I felt.
Those 2 gentlemen, unfortunately, are no longer with us, having both left in 2003.

yeah...I met Nemanja Vidic when he was Red Star's player.Also I spoke with him last time in february 08 whan he was on international duty with Serbia before friendly game against Macedonia in Skopje.It was in some Belgrade's club.I have to say that he is a very nice guy.

Also,maybe 10 years ago,I use to play football for some Belgrade's lower league clubs.Once we played a friendly match against OFK Beograd.Their best player was Slobodan Rajkovic who is now Chelsea player on loan at Twente.What a rock:eek:.Im pleased that I had this honour to play against him.

I've met a Blackpool reserve player, a few players from Ebbsfleet United and got chatting to a Blackburn Rovers academy player on the train once.

So no one really. Lol.
