Henning Jensen was a Spanish champion with Real Madrid. And Allan Simonsen was FC Barcelona"s biggest star in the years around 1980.
Before that, the two of them formed possibly the most poisonous attack any football club had at the time, in Borussia Mönchengladbach. And both of them went on to win championships in one more league: Jensen with Ajax Amsterdam in the Netherlands and Simonsen with Vejle Boldklub in Denmark.
(On a sidenote, I first heard about Allan Simonsen, when he and I were 15. He was the team mate, for club and country, of one of my school mates. I only ever met him twice, incidentally in his Barcelona time.)
