Daniel Van Buyten

Clubs: R. Charleroi SC, R. Standard de Liège, Olympique de Marseille, Manchester City FC (loan), Hamburger SV, FC Bayern München  

• Born in the French-speaking Walloon part of Belgium, his first senior team was Charleroi. Voted rookie of the year at the end of his first season with Standard, 1999/2000, he became a Belgian international in his second, scoring a vital late equaliser in a 2002 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Scotland in Glasgow on only his second outing.

• Joined Marseille in summer 2001, where he had three seasons which ended with a loan move to Manchester City.

• Moved to Germany, his mother's birthplace, in 2004, joining Hamburg; scored seven goals in 61 Bundesliga games and was appointed captain but received an irresistible offer from Bayern in 2006 and left to some consternation among HSV supporters.

• Won the Bundesliga/German Cup double in 2007/08 but failed to tie down a permanent place in the Bayern defence until the arrival of Louis van Gaal. Scored Bayern's first goal of their 2009/10 UEFA Champions League campaign, against Maccabi Haifa FC, and played from start to finish of the club's defeat by FC Internazionale Milano in the final.

• Went into the Madrid showpiece seeking to win the treble with Bayern having been a key member of the squad which secured another Bundesliga/German Cup double in the weeks beforehand.

• Introduced just before the end of normal time in Bayern's 2012 UEFA Champions League final loss to Chelsea FC, he made six appearances in the team's run to the Wembley showpiece the following season. Started and finished the German Cup final a week later, part three of the Bavarian club's unprecedented treble.
