    French only sorry.

    Some very nice anecdotes about CR7 who was his best friend, and losing Foé in the conf cup. Surprisingly nothing about Rooney :



    He also - surprisingly - thinks he left a mark on the club, recalling an episode when the fans clapped him at OT a few months ago.

    Holy shit, I was thinking about him today too. Mentioned him to @Zebs earlier.

    Don't know about the club, but he left an impression on me at least. Not a great one sadly

    The only thing I remember from his time at United was when he knocked down a kid in his car.

    It's not surprising that he thinks he left a mark. Who here doesn't remember Djemba-Djemba, the man so good they named him twice. Scored a winner against Leeds, ultimately wasn't good enough to fill Keane's boots (who would have thought?).

    Not a very good signing but not bad like some other midfield purchases in the late SAF era.

    I doubt there are many players with under 20 league appearances for United that get as many mentions on here.

    Let’s be honest though we only remember him because of his alliterative name.

    Doesn't matter if that's the reason, he still left a mark here and not in a bad way like Taibi or poor Chadwick because of his looks.

    I don't understand French but I've had this playing in the background for 15 minutes. He may have been a bit shit on the pitch, but he's soothing to listen to. :)
