Cult Hero: Alen Boksic (Middlesbrough)

By on January 11, 2011 - 4 views

Name: Alen Boksic

Club: Middlesbrough

Position: Striker

Nationality: Croatian

Despite getting his fingers burned with previous big-money imports Branco, Fabrizio Ravanelli and Emerson, manager Bryan Robson re-entered the transfer market in the summer of 2000 to bring Croatian legend Alen Boksic to Middlesborough.

Initially there were concerns that the star had simply moved for the money – a reported £60,000 a week – but the former Lazio man turned out to be a huge success as he banged in goal after goal – 12 in total – to steer Boro away from the drop.
