Footballers that vanished off the face of the Earth

Recommended Posts

football forum

Inspired by Cicero's status. Who are the players that simply fell of the face of the Earth never to be seen again? Does anyone remember Alvaro Recoba? He was class back in the day but fell off a cliff overnight and hasn't been seen since.

Jefferson Farfan. He still exists for us here in Peru but ever since he's left Schalke no one else has mentioned him since.

I saw him getting involved in a brawl in the Russian league the other day. He got a straight red.

From what I saw, he instigated it too. And they want to call him up as Guerrero's replacement against Bolivia. Hilarious. He was a fantastic player at Schalke but a disaster in Russia.

He was a very good player in his prime. Sick on fifa as well.

Milan Baros

I remember Liverpool, Villa, a loan spell at Pompey, Czech Republic and Euro 2004 when he won the golden boot.

After that, I couldn't tell what happened or if he was still playing.

Harry Kane. One minute hes the league top scorer, picked for Englands euro squad, future of the nation. Tournament rolls around and I think he must have stayed home.

Can't recall the name but  Costa Rica's captain at the 2014 WC, he looked great at the world cup but haven't much heard of him since then

Was that the same tournament I cannot recall seeing Pogba at? Curious. Juvetus haven't fielded him all season either.

What's Alex Song up to these days? Haha

Goddamn, his last season with Arsenal was beautiful. The way he played with van Persie was amazing! It was Lampard to Drogba esque, shame we only got to see one season of it. I still remember this chip Song played into the box for van Persie to volly home.

He's in Russia now with Rubin, earning a crust.

Going from Arsenal to Barcelona has been a mistake for everyone but Henry I think. Overmars, Petit, Hleb, Song, Vermaelen, Fabregas...didn't work out very well for any of them.

Yeah he shouldn't have gone to Barcelona. And I had never wanted him to come either. Had he stayed at Arsenal his career could have still been on track. 

As for Cesc, it wasn't a disaster. It just wasn't the right time.
