Andrei Kanchelskis

Andrei KanchelskisKanchelsksis was Joe Royle’s most lavish expenditure at £5m. in 1995. There was no doubting that his acquisition was mind-blowing and that Everton have bought a world-class footballer. His skill, pace and potency infront of goal were truly exceptional. And few Evertonians will ever forget his brace against Liverpool infront of a weaping Kop.

In the eyes of some royal blue sceptics, it appeared that the Ukrainian had arrived without any operating instructions or an extended warranty. After a brief honeymoon, he appeared to lose interest in the club and after several sad performances was allowed to join Fiorentina for a fee of £8m in 1996. Even today, there is doubt as to how much of the transfer fee was collected before the Italian club filed for bankruptcy.
