Top Of The Flops In England Return?
Villa fans will recognise one of the faces in the Croatian squad who face England on Wednesday night as non other than our £6million flop Bosko Balaban is back in the frame for his country.
Balaban joined Villa whilst John Gregory was in charge but failed to impress him or his pre-decessor Graham Taylor and was eventually allowed to leave on a free to Club Brugge in 2003.
However the striker, who turns 28 this week, still hasn't given up showing the English what he can do as he told Club TV:
'I still want to play football for another four or five years, that is certain. If I cannot play, then I want to leave, that is unfortunate but I will not sit on the bench. There are enough clubs in Europe who want me, but I would gladly return to United Kingdom. For me United Kingdom and Spain are the strongest competitions and would definitely try once again.'
