Football News

Few would have imagined the heights Diego Forlan would sore to after he left Manchester United as a laughing stock in 2004.

After scoring every other match during a stunning three-year spell with Villarreal, he went and replicated his Yellow Submarine form with Atletico Madrid, where he won both the Europa League and UEFA Super Cup in 2010.

Hands up who saw that coming?
