Per Kroldrup - He is third choice in Denmark's central defence behind Daniel Agger and Simon Kjaer. He was discovered by Italian club Udinese in 2001 when he played for the Danish second division club B93. At Udinese he joined fellow Dane Martin Jorgensen and despite calls for his inclusion in the national team, he did not make his full international debut until February 2004.

In the summer of 2005 he signed for English club Everton but unfortunately he suffered a groin injury before playing his first game and he went on to play just a single game for the club as he found it difficult to adapt to the physical aspects of the English game.

Fiorentina brought him back to Serie A after just over half a season with the Merseyside club. He soon became part of Fiorentina's first team and he still plays as a regular in the club's central defence.

The newspaper Liverpool Echo put him in their chosen 'Merseyside Lost 11' team branding him one of the worst signings in the history of Liverpool FC and Everton FC.
