Goalkeeper: Alex Manninger

Former Austria international Alex Manninger impressed in spurts with Arsenal between 1997 and 2002 but was only ever a back-up to David Seaman.

After short spells at various clubs across Europe, he eventually found his way to Juventus in 2008.

When Juventus' first-choice goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon picked up a long-term injury, Manninger was called up to play during a five-month period and did a fine job.

He even picked up a Serie A winners' medal in 2012 before leaving the Old Lady for Augsburg.
