Former Leeds, Manchester City and England full-back Danny Mills dished the dirt on Soccer AM this week.

Last Updated: 11/05/13 at 14:10 Post Comment

The 35-year-old made more than 300 appearances in his senior career, with significant stints with Norwich, Charlton, Leeds and Manchester City as well as winning 19 caps for England.

So which characters stood out during his career?

BEST TRAINER: It would have to be David James. On his day he was phenomenal. He was a magnificent specimen of a bloke. His body fat was almost zero. He was a model. Whenhe wanted to be he was absolutely unbeatable.

WORST TRAINER: That would have to go down as Robbie Fowler. He had an unbelievable ability to score goals but sometimes Robbie was not always brilliant. If I could back that up with a second: Nicholas Anelka.

MOST INTELLIGENT: That is a difficult one. Steve McManaman is up there. Robbie Fowler comes into that category as well with what he has done with his business brain. Some people don't see that side of him. But McManaman is a clever guy.

LEAST INTELLIGENT: Lee Croft. Crofty is not the sharpest tool in the box shall we say.

THE JOKER: It has to be Ben Thatcher. He was absolutely top draw. He was just crazy. He works really hard and people have this perception that he was a bit of a nut case - at times he was - but he trained hard. If there was a joke it had to be Thatch.

WORST DRESSED: Jo. You looked at him and thought, "not sure if that is eclectic or retro". I think awful is the one.

FUTURE MANAGER: A lot of the players who become good managers, you don't expect it. Paul Dickov is very passionate and he will do well. Didi Hamann, I never thought he would get involved. Robbie Fowler was managing his team in Thailand for a while. Not one of those players did I think would go into management.

LONGEST IN THE SHOWER: The one that sticks in my mind is Paul Bosvelt.
