FIFA 14 Ultimate Team includes the greatest Legends to ever set foot on the pitch. Every week, FIFA 14 spotlights one Legend, only available on Xbox One and Xbox 360.

This week’s Spotlight: Frank de Boer

In the 90s, Ajax Amsterdam was one of the most popular and successful clubs in Europe and defender Frank de Boer was just one of many stand out players on their roster. He started his career in the Dutch capital in 1988 and spent eleven seasons there. During that time, the club won five league titles, two Dutch Cups, the UEFA Cup in 1992 and the UEFA Champions League in 1995.

In addition, de Boer’s playing career led him to Spain from 1998 until 2003, where he played with FC Barcelona for five seasons, winning one league title in 1999. He followed that up with a season for Galatasaray in Turkey followed by a year playing for Rangers in Scotland. He then ended his career in 2006 after spending two seasons playing in Qatar.

Success followed de Boer all around the world. He enjoyed a successful International career with The Netherlands making 112 appearances over the course of his career. He was a part of the squads at the 1994 and 1998 FIFA World Cups and the 1992, 2000 and 2004 UEFA European Championships.

After retiring as a player, de Boer took charge of Ajax in 2010 and since then, he has managed the club to three straight league titles. He served as an assistant for The Netherlands National Team during the 2010 FIFA World Cup where the country finished second.

Frank is also the younger twin to Brother Ronald. The two spent large chunks of their careers playing on the same field including multiple seasons together at Ajax, FC Barcelona, Rangers and on the Dutch National Team.
