Error in Casting, Part Seventeen


1- Sebastian Rambert and Internazionale Milano 1995/96

Argentine forward Sebastian Rambert joined Internazionale Milano in 1995 along with compatriot Javier Zanetti. While Zanetti adapted to Calcio and stayed with Inter for the rest of his career, Rambert struggled and was on his way out at the end of the season (to Zaragoza) before returning to Argentina.

2- Mateja Kezman and Chelsea 2004/05

Serbian striker Mateja Kezman had a prolific spell at PSV Eindhoven (2000-04). This earned him a transfer to Chelsea (2004/05). However, he failed to settle in a superb League winning side and was transferred out (to Atletico Madrid) at the end of the season.

3- Igor Dobrovolsky and Genoa/Olympique Marseille 1992/93

USSR player Igor Dobrovolsky was one of the stars of the 1988 Olympics and was naturally a target for transfer abroad. However, his spells at Castellon, Genoa and Olympique Marseille among others were all disappointing.

5- Ivo Stas and Aston Villa 1990/01

Czechoslovakia and Banik Ostarva defender Ivo Stas was signed by former Czechoslovakia National team manager Jozef Venglos upon taking over at Aston Villa in 1990. However, it was a disappointing spell and he was back to his former club by 1992.
