Alen Boksic
Club:Middlesbrough
Position:Forward

Increasingly susceptible to injury, Alen Boksic still remains a classy forward capable of spectacular goals and match-winning performances.

His creaking limbs have limited his contribution to Middlesbrough's season, but he still managed to pitch in with important goals in their fight against relegation and FA Cup run.

Now aged 32, he has had successful spells in France and Italy.

Boksic scored 26 goals in his last season with Marseille in 1994 and earned himself an 8m move to Lazio in the process.

He disappointed during his stay in Rome but was soon snapped up by Juventus.

He helped them to the Champions League final in 1997 before returning to Lazio and playing a key part in the Double success of 2000.

Middlesbrough manager Bryan Robson splashed out 2.5m to bring him to the Riverside that summer.

He has occasionally shown glimpses of his world-class best on Teesside. He still possesses know-how to unsettle even the most experienced defences.
