Rudolf Ruud Krol, a former professional footballer, has 83 caps for the Netherlands national team. Even though he played for his hometown club Ajax much of his career, he later became a coach. When playing in midfield, Krol was a defensive centerfield due to his passing spread with both his feet and his temperament, his tactical intelligence, and his ability to start attacks after winning the ball. Krol was widely regarded as one of the best defenders of all time.
