Germany star Thomas Muller, David Alaba regarded as one of the world’s best full-backs and Toni Kroos, a reported £25 million target for Manchester United.
As well as a roll call of Bayern Munich’s Champions League- winning squad, it’s also some of Dundee keeper Dan Twardzik’s former team-mates.
On the verge of his expected first start for the Dark Blues this weekend against Alloa, the 24-year-old acknowledges his CV looks good on paper.
But he understands he has it all to prove at Dens Park.
And the biggest challenge of his career could be to displace Kyle Letheren as the No 1 at the promotion chasers.
“If the gaffer gives me the chance this weekend, I will try my best to take it,” said the ex-Bayern youngster.
“I’ve been waiting half-a-season for my chance. It’s felt like a long time.
“Kyle has played well that’s the only reason I have not had time on the pitch.
“I like to see it from the perspective I’ve pushed him on to produce his best. It’s down to me to prove I can stay in the side. That work has just begun.”
Originally of Czech nationality, he switched allegiances as a teenager, becoming a German youth international. The keeper, who can speak five languages, has since played in Italy and now Scotland.
But he wants to settle down.
“I like to travel but only on my holidays,” he said. “It would be nice to find a club and stay.
“To go from Germany to Italy then Scotland has been great but I want games and to be No 1, wherever that may be.
“Bayern picked me up playing for the German youth side.
“David Alaba was in my team, Holger Badstuber, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller were living in the same building as me. I had the chance to learn my game with good players.
“It helps that you’ve grown up around quality.”
Twardzik, who spent last season at Aberdeen, certainly made in impression in his first Dundee appearance.
Coming in cold off the bench his first touch was a penalty save to deny Rory Loy.
He admits though, the lasting impression he’s made on fans and managers is not with his performances, it’s with his height.
“Maybe with my height and no Bayern on my CV people would not take me,” said Twardzik, who’s a little over 5ft 10in.
“It’s always been an issue for me.
“When you move from team to team, people say all the time that you are too small.
“Even managers who know me and know my play tell me directors wont sign me.
“I have that fight to prove people wrong.
“It’s not always about physical strength. I have enough strength to keep the ball out the goal that’s all I need.”
There’s been talk of him making the switch permanently to Stuart McCall’s Motherwell, where he spent five games on loan late last year.
But Twardzik is only concerned with Dundee.
“My time at Motherwell was great but I knew I was coming back.
“It’s an honour they wanted me again. It shows I did well in my five games there.
“But I’m back and ready to stake my claim at Dundee.
“We have three keepers who could all play at this club.
“There’s no point in fighting.We are team-mates, you should never fight, even for the same position.
“It’s not down to us it’s the manager’s decision who plays.”
