Part of the Manchester City side that won the 2008 FA Youth Cup Final with a 4-2 aggregate victory over Chelsea, winger Vladimir Weiss may have failed to carve out a career at the Etihad, but he’s developed something of a habit for scoring sensational goals.
Loaned out to Bolton, Espanyol and most notably Glasgow Rangers during his time at City, the Slovenian attacker always looked capable of playing in the Premier League.
But after seeing out his Sky Blues contract, Weiss took a slightly different route, signing a one-year deal with newly-promoted Serie A team Pescara in 2012 where he was able to play more regularly.
An impressive spell in Italy soon saw Olympiacos come calling with the Slovenian yet again impressing for the Greek giants both domestically and in Europe.
Yet there was to be one final twist in the tale for the now 25-year-old, who raised plenty of eyebrows in January of last year after opting to sign for Lekhwiya SC.
On a lucrative contract with the Qatari club, where he is currently working under former Swansea manager Michael Laudrup, Weiss has nevertheless been able to showcase his obvious ability, scoring a sensational individual goal in the Asian Champions League.
Once tipped to shine in the Premier League, Weiss could yet prove his worth on UK shores, with Rangers among those who may be only too happy to offer the Slovenian a route back into the European game.
For now though, he appears content to earn big money while scoring some memorable goals along the way.
