Morgan De Sanctis (Galatasaray) (galatasaray.org)
Morgan De Sanctis can be described as a guarantee. He has accumulated a lot of experience in various countries. After a career lived almost entirely at Serie A outfit  Udinese, he moved to Spain (Seville) and Turkey (Galatasaray) before returning home to become the #1 of Napoli.

He is a "reckless" 'keeper, who does not fear physical confrontations with opponents, diving out, low or high, always with conviction. Between the posts he is very athletic and he commands his area well. On the field he loves to communicate with his defenders, who are regularly shouted at by him every time an opponent can easily take a shot. In his career he has also had the chance to play at Juventus, back in 1997, but with Bianconeri he was always second fiddle to Angelo Peruzzi.

Did you know?

Morgan De Sanctis was added by Marcello Lippi in the list of reserves for the 2006 World Cup which was won by Italy, along with Bonera, Marchionni and Semioli. He once again lost out to Peruzzi, who was their third-choice shot stopper in Germany.
