George Weah

... played 103 League games for Monaco, 96 for Paris St. Germain and 114 for Milan, and won 60 international caps. He also played 11 games for Chelsea, on loan from Milan. In July 2000 he left Milan to join newly–promoted Manchester City on a free transfer, on a contract that was reportedly worth £30,000 a week. He left City just nine games into the 2000/1 season, dissatisfied with the amount of playing time he was being given by manager Joe Royle. He'd made nine appearances (including two in the League Cup), but only played the full 90 minutes on three occasions. He scored one goal in the Premier League and three in the League Cup (against Liverpool and Gillingham respectively).

After leaving City he signed for Marseille. Now aged 34, he made 19 appearances, scoring five goals, but left at the end of the 2000/1 season. He then spent two years with Al Jazira in Abu Dhabi, scoring 13 goals in only eight appearances. This was his last professional club.
