That was the first time Manchester City won the premier league in the 21st century. Mario went on to spend three seasons at Man City, and he also joined Liverpool for three seasons as well but did not win the premier league at Anfield.
Italian Carlo Cudicini won the premier league as a goalkeeper with Chelsea FC. He recorded over 200 appearances for the Blues from 1999 to 2006, keeping over 100 clean sheets for them as well.
Cudicini had received the Premier League’s Golden Gloves award for goalkeeper of the year during his time at the club and also received the winner’s medals in the Premier League twice, FA Cup, League Cup and Community Shield as well for the club.
