Diego Forlan will always hold a strange position at Manchester United - as something of a flop who also became a cult hero at Old Trafford.
Sir Alex Ferguson spent £6.9 million to get his man from Independiente but he took a while to settle in.
He didn’t score his first goal for the club until his second season - going 27 games before bagging the goal that broke his duck.
But despite this he made a habit of scoring important goals against the likes of Southampton, Liverpool and Chelsea. This habit allied with his larger than life personality made him something of a cult flop at Old Trafford.
Yesterday he was in action for his new club Cerezo Osaka. He decided to leave Brazilian side Internacional in the winter - agreeing a move to join the Japanese outfit.
And in the game against Chinese side Shandong Luneng last night he scored a crucial winner - taking his side through to the AFC Champions League last 16.
It was a man who David Moyes, the recently dismissed Manchester United manager, had tried to sign numerous times for Everton - Vagner Love - who had given Shandong the lead from the penalty spot.
But a goal from Yoichiro Kakitani and then Forlan’s strike just two minutes later proved enough to send Cerezo through at Shandong’s expense in second place below Pohang Steelers.
