Giovanni van Bronckhorst



Giovanni van Bronckhorst
Van Bronckhorst spent much of France 98 on the substitutes' bench before being snapped up by Dick Advocaat for a move to Rangers.

He cost the Glasgow giants 5.25m from Feyenoord - and while the figure raised a few eyebrows at the time, subsequent displays brought him to the attention of Dutch coach Frank Rijkaard and proved he was an astute purchase.

A commanding figure in midfield, either on the left or in a more central role, he suffers from the high level of competition for places in the Dutch first team.

There is also the problem of playing his domestic football in a league which has a much lower profile than the Primera Liga, where many of his compatriots are based.

He is likely to spend most of the tournament on the bench - unless Rijkaard pulls off one of his most unexpected tactical switches.
