When hearing the name Gabri, thoughts immediately go back to his endless rushes and his inexhaustible work ethic. In 2006, he was the first footballer to transfer from FC Barcelona to Ajax. He played a total of four seasons in Amsterdam. Nowadays, he lives in Andorra.
Thomas Vermaelen played six seasons in Ajax's first team. After playing football in England, Italy, Spain, and Japan, the defender now resides in London with his family. "Ajax and Arsenal were my favorite teams as a child. It's quite coincidental that I ended up playing for those clubs."
