Brazil legend Rivaldo won almost all there is to win in football, including the 1999 Ballon d'Or, but never got round to playing in the Premier League. He has now revealed which EPL side he would love to have played for during his career.
Rivaldo, who is widely regarded as one of his generation's best players, turned out for the likes of Deportivo La Coruna, FC Barcelona and AC Milan at the height of his career, and was part of the Brazil squad that won the 2002 FIFA World Cup.
The highly-decorated forward travelled the world during his playing days, taking to pitches in countries such as Greece, Uzbekistan and even Angola, but never featured in the Premier League, despite once courting the attentions of Manchester United.
"At the time that there were rumours about my potential transfer to Manchester United, they had recently won the Champions League in an epic final against Bayern Munich," Rivaldo said in his weekly column for Betfair.
"I was in the stands at the Nou Camp that night and thought that, if I were going to play in the Premier League one day, my club of choice would be United.
"Of course, there were other good clubs in England then like Arsenal, Chelsea or Liverpool, but United always caught my attention for everything they were achieving and the way they were playing in those days.
"Sir Alex Ferguson always said good things about me when I faced them, so I have a particular affection for the club and it would be my choice if I was allowed to pick any club in the Premier League..."
