Sébastien Frey

France 2017

Having left Cannes in 1998 Frey spent the majority of his career in Serie A, mainly with Inter, Fiorentina and Parma. He joined Parma as the replacement for Gianluigi Buffon and it was here he won the Coppa Italia in 2002. A move to Fiorentina followed as he enjoyed his best football for La Viola. He was considered one of the best keepers in Serie A during his time there and was known for his consistency, athleticism and reaction saves. He was particularly good when faced with a one-on-one situation. Frey made his international debut in 2007 and was a member of France’s UEFA EURO 2008 squad. He retired from international football at just 28 years old.
