Peter Beardsley playing three major rivalries
Peter Beardsley was known for moving from Liverpool to its cross town rival, Everton in 1991. He is also one of only four players who had played for both Liverpool and Manchester United. He also played for Manchester City. So he had played for both clubs of three major rivalries in England. However, he only played for Man Utd once and was playing for Man City in the lower division. So he never wore the Manchester United shirt against both Liverpool and Man City. I doubted that he ever wore the Man City shirt against Manchester United.
Beardsley held several record fort the Mersey derby. He held the transfer record for a player from Liverpool to Everton. Along with David Johnson, he was one of two players ever scored for both sides of the Mersey derbies.
Note: Brazil's Ronaldo played for Inter Milan, AC Milan, Barcelona and Real Madrid. He played for each of them against the rivals.
