Sanchez, Fabinho, Beckham: Fans play the 'I completely forgot he ever played for them' game


Remember when Harry Kane played for Norwich City?

Don’t feel embarrassed if you can’t. But it did actually happen.

Kane’s loan spell at Carrow Road is one of a number of moves that most people have probably forgotten about.

Joe Hart played for Blackpool. Marco Materazzi was at Everton. Jesse Lingard played for Birmingham City.


‘I completely forget he ever played for them’

The ‘I completely forget he ever played for them’ game provides plenty of fun and fans on Reddit have been playing, listing a number of players and the surprise clubs they played for.

Ready for some bizarre collaborations?

Fabinho at Real Madrid: Before establishing himself as a talented midfielder at AS Monaco, Fabinho played under Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid. We say played - he played for 14 minutes, although he did record an assist.

Jan Oblak and Ederson played together at Rio Ave: Two of the finest goalkeepers in the world played together at Portuguese side Rio Ave in 2012/13. Oblak was the No.1 while Ederson was his backup.

Peter Crouch at IFK Hässleholm: In the summer of 2000, Tottenham loaned Crouch out to Swedish third-tier side IFK Hässleholm. Who knew?

David Beckham and David Moyes played together at Preston: Before he became a global superstar, Beckham was loaned out by Man United to Preston North End, where he linked up with Moyes.

Landon Donovan at Bayern Munich: Bit of a strange one, this. In 2009, Bayern Munich signed Donovan after the American spent time training with the Bundesliga outfit.

But his unconvincing stint led to Jurgen Klinsmann losing his job as Bayern's manager.

Shkodran Mustafi at Everton: Mustafi was a part of the youth system at Everton for three years, long before he returned to the Premier League with Arsenal.


Alexis Sanchez and Radamel Falcao played together at River Plate: With Diego Simeone as manager? No wonder River Plate won the 2007/08 Argentine Primera Division Clausura title.

Samuel Eto’o at Everton: This was fairly recent to be honest, so you'll probably remember it. Still an odd one, mind. 

Robbie Keane at Inter Milan: From Coventry City to Inter Milan. Baffling.
