Sometimes, very occasionally, football throws you a heartwarming tale. Global superstar Edgar Davids had already shown his true love for the game, enjoying a glittering career across the world, starring for Ajax, AC Milan, Juventus, Barcelona, Spurs and Inter Milan. Even towards the end of his playing life, he turned out for Crystal Palace and stated - probably for the first time ever - that playing for the South Londoners was 'one of the greatest experiences of my life.' However, after 2 years out of the professional game he signed on, with no salary, as player-manager at League 2's bottom side Barnet, saying that he was joining 'my local club'. He quickly showed he was up for the fight and became a club hero after rescuing 36 Bees fans who were stranded on the hard shoulder of the motorway by sending the team bus to collect them. However, his stint ended in acrimony, with relegation out of the football league, and then being sent-off three times in the first eight games of the 2013-14 season; he eventually resigned, finishing a true rollercoaster ride in North London.
