"Not good enough"

AC Milan sold Aubameyang for £1m in 2011 because he 'wasn't good enough'! Now he's in stunning form for Borussia Dortmund as AC Milan hunt for a prolific striker.
He's back!
Ex-Manchester United and Chelsea player, Juan Sebastian Verón, has come out of retirement at the age of 41 and signed for Estudiantes!

Veron hung up his boots two years ago and is currently the president Estudiantes. He promised to play in 2017 Copa Libertadores if fans bought 65% of the boxes at the club's new stadium and has now fulfilled his promise.
