Throughout the history of the sport, football players have moved from club to club. We’ve seen a number of odd pairings like Marouane Chamakh and Mauricio Pochettino, George Weah and Shaun Wright-Phillips, Ivan Rakitic and Mesut Ozil. And yet, down are some football pairs you didn’t know had played together.
5. Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy
Our first duo is Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane, and Leicester City front-man Jamie Vardy. While the two players are both in the England squad, they have played together for a club as well. While Vardy joined The Foxes in 2012, he had the opportunity to play with Kane when the Spurs striker moved to the club on a loan in 2013.
At the start of his career, the Tottenham Hotspur front-man spent time on loan at Leicester City in the Championship. With The Foxes, Kane made an appearance in Leicester City’s Championship play-off semi-final loss to Watford.
4. Dani Alves and Sergio Ramos

It’s incredulous to think that the two defenders, now fierce rivals, once played alongside one another in the same team. Dani Alves and Sergio Ramos became Sevilla’s go-to defensive partnership in LaLiga during the 2001-05 season.
The duo made a combined 85 appearances for the club where they managed to keep 15 clean sheets, of course, Ramos went on to become Real Madrid’s captain while Alves moved to longstanding rivals Barcelona.
3. David Beckham and David Moyes

One of the most surprising pairings on the list is Manchester United and Real Madrid legend David Beckham, and former Manchester United manager David Moyes. The duo briefly played alongside one another when Beckham was on loan at Preston in the 1994-95 season.
Beckham’s stint at Preston was however marred by injuries, which resulted in him starting only 5 games for the side. Moyes on the other hand, played every single game of the season.
