Benfica foreign flops picture battle

This is not exactly an original idea since it's being used in the italian and english forums, but i think that it would be interesting to know what you all have to say about our worst players ever. I think that we have a lot of material, especially from last decade.
Please post a single player at the time with a photo and a short description. Do not post several players so this can last longer.

Have fun!

Ok, i'll start with... Michael Thomas



Brought to Benfica in 1997 by Graeme Souness, he was easily one of the worst players to ever wear our glorious shirt.
I remember that after a while nobody could stand him. He achieved something remarkable which was being booed by our own fans whenever he touched the ball
Graeme Souness was incredibly stubborn and made him a first team player, when it was obvious that he was some kind of cancer in our midfield. He didn't defend or attack well, he could barely control the ball, and i remember the day that he scored a goal, everyone was laughing in the stands :eekani:

Incredible memories from the guy who had BIG BALLS. At least, that was what Souness - his protector - said to the papers one day

You guys are so mean.... Fyssas? He's not that bad, even though he has been playing like shit lately. Pesaresi yes, that guy was even worse than today's Fyssas.

Here's another flop

Tahar


The guy who loved red cards

PS: LPC, you can upload them to imageshack.us

Fyssas ebing rated higher than Dos Santos? Flo must be on the whacky weed.

Hey, nice thread :thmbup:
here's my five cents on this for today ...
he wasn't a player for Benfica actually, but he is the guy who wasted Deco's talent for Benfica by sending him away, I hate him with passion for that I can tell you!
Who am I? :

Pila, they both suck....I'll take Fryssas on the simple task of marking a man better...Dos Santos couldn't mark x's and o's on a tic tac table...
