The physically blessed centre-back, Thomas Vermaelen, started his career at Ajax, joining their youth academy in 2000 and getting his first professional start in 2003-2004. He was phenomenal in his first season, leading Ajax to Eredivisie glory in his first season. He was named team captain in 2009 but only a season later Arsenal came calling and the Belgian defender wasted no time joining forces with the English giants. After playing 5 seasons for Gunners, Vermaelen departed to join Spanish Heavyweights, Barcelona. However, he found it hard to find first-place football there and joined Roma on loan last season.
