Saw this question on Twitter and I genuinely think there's no answer and it's just a troll. Can anyone else answer this?

The same one has been posted in our whatsapp group chat! It's either extremely hard or there's no answer

Clarence Seedorf is usually the answer to questions like this! :-)

(Actually, I think the played with/against in this case probably refers to Internationals in some cases)

I think there is no answer. Unless they are counting charity matches or something equally as vague?

Could only realistically be with in one case (unless you are Wilfred Zaha!!! which is obviously not the answer to the question).

There's only 2 clubs Messi has played for Barca and Argentina so it has to someone from there surely if he even exists. Unless I'm dense and misunderstood :)

This one has an answer that I think I know. Not sure if it's been posted here before.

I'll bite and say yes, given that Argentina is a country!!!

Shay Given mate

Shay Given

Yeah that's what I had too :) I had my dad and my brother on it for hours trying to figure it after my mate sent me the picture.

Don't mean to come across as a bellend, but after checking I think Stephen Ireland might also be correct?

How sad am I, desperate to get a trivia question on a football board right. Need a life loyal

Has to be a troll. Off the top of my head I can't think of anyone who's played in the top 5 leagues, even older players like Zlatan who have been around the block a bit have missed at least 1 league.

Shay Given

Can't find any record of Shay Given playing at the same club at the same time as Robert Pires. Pires has left Aston Villa before Given signed.

Florin Radioiciou (sp?) and Christian Poulsen I think have both played in the big 5 leagues but neither fulfil the criteria in the question so it's clearly pish..... unless there is a random that isn't springing to mind?

Can you make a 5 a side team of players ( current or retired ) that share your first name, try and include a keeper in the 5.

Said random would have to have played for either Barcelona or for Argentina at some point during their career...unless it's a total troll question because they played alongside Messi once for Barcelona C in 2003 or something.

Yeah its not Shay Given, Its Stephen Ireland.

Apparently Given was on twitter saying he never played with Sturridge or Pires.

Indeed. Sounds like the person creating the question (not the OP) is fishing!

So the one I posted isn't Shay Given then, only answer I was told was him. Looks like the FF football detectives sorted it out. :)

My dad sent me this one "Who was the first player to hold the World Cup, Euros, Champions League and Europa League medal at the same time?"

Looking at it, it must be a Spaniard.

Bojan Krkic has played in all 5 leagues. Only thing I don't think he'd have done is play in the same team as Bale or Lewandowski...

Edit: No French league... :o



In fact... this Daily Mail story names (apparently the only) 9 players to play in the top level of four of those leagues (excluding French)

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-4171178/Bojan-Krkic-set-join-exclusive-group-players.html

Chrstian Poulsen is the only one of those named to have played in France, so it is quite likely he'll have played against all of these, but, not with... nor were any of Ajax's or Copenhagen's recent managers Spanish...

It's hard to find anybody who has played in all 5 leagues


Closest I got was Kevin prince boating he scored on 4 but like yours never played in france

In fairness, the question doesn't say it was the top tier in all of those countries, just that it was spanish league etc.

That said, I'm 99% sure it's a wind up
