Brian Laudrup is perhaps one of the greatest strikers Denmark has ever had, not only due to his technical ability but also due to his speed and elegant movement around the field. A superb football speaker, Brian has experienced top flight football for the entirety of his career, giving him a plethora of anecdotal tales to deliver as an after-dinner speaker.
In a glorious career that saw him play for a number of European teams such as FC Bayern München, ACF Fiorentina, AC Milan, Glasgow Rangers, Chelsea, FC Copenhagen and in the year of 2000 he finished his career at AFC Ajax Amsterdam.
Laudrup was crowned the Danish Footballer of the year on a record 4 occasions, more than any other Danish player has achieved. Furthermore, he was awarded the same title in Scotland, twice, as the first none-British player given that honour as testament to his talents. In 1992, Laudrup was also named the FIFA fifth best player in the world as well being named by legend, Pelé as one of the top 125 greatest living footballers at the FIFA 100 ceremony in March 2004, alongside his older brother Michael Laudrup.
During what was a decorated career, Laudrup was a part of the 1994 UEFA Champions League winning Milan side. Three Scottish Premiership titles followed during his time at Rangers, a club at which Laudrup scored 33 goals. A brief period with Chelsea later in his career yielded a 1998 UEFA Super Cup glory to add to the two Danish championships he won early in his career with Brøndby.
Spectators idolised him for his virtuoso dribbling and elegant break-through, as he demonstrated in Sweden in July 1992 when Denmark historically won the European championship. For his national team, Brian Laudrup played 82 games and scored 21 goals. As an after-dinner speaker and football speaker, Brian speaks of how he achieved peak performance and challenge others to do the same in their own lives.
