VIDEO: Manchester United flop Eric Djemba-Djemba scores own goal in India

Old Trafford

The Cameroonian is however happy that his team are top of the table.

Manchester United's legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson did not always get it right. Over the years he brought in the odd stinker to Old Trafford.

Bebe, Juan Sebastian Veron, Kleberson and of course, Eric Djemba-Djemba.

The Cameroonian had the odd moment for the club but all in all he was a flop at Manchester United. Signed from Nantes for a fee in the region of £3.5 million he never made the grade and was sold for a loss to Aston Villa for £1,5 million two years later.

Since then he has had a journeyman's career - playing in Qatar, Denmark, Israel, Serbia and popping up in Scottish football last term for a very forgettable stint with St Mirren.

Now he is in the Indian Super League with Chennaiyin.

And today, the ex Manchester United man made league history, but not in a good way.

He became the first ever player to score an own goal in the competition.

He was trying to block a cross in a game against Pune City this afternoon before accidentally lobbing the ball over his own keeper's head, much to his bemusement.

In the end the 33-year-old had the last laugh, as his side win 3-1 and went top of the table.

But he will want to quickly forget this moment...
