By on January 3, 2011 - 585 views

In the summer of 2000, Cameroonian international Joseph-Desiree Job made the switch from Ligue 1 side Lens – in a deal worth £3m – to play for Bryan Robson’s Middlesbrough.

Job began Premier League life failing to hold down a first team place, but under the new reign of Steve Mclaren the striker enjoyed the most successful spell in the clubs history.

Job opened the scoring in the 2004 Carling Cup final and helped secure Middlesbrough’s first ever major trophy by beating Bolton 2-1 at the Millennium stadium.

Now, the striker plies his trade far from England in the Belgian first division with K.Lierse. He helped them to promotion from the second division in his first season and – at the age of 33 – is contracted for another two years with the club.
