Players That Received Hostile Receptions

Today in Fan Park we take a look at a few player that received a hostile reception once going back to their former club. These players are usually ones that up and left to play for their club's main rivals.

Robin Van Persie To Manchester United

Having stood by him through thick and thin at Arsenal, Robin van Persie decided against signing a new contract with Arsenal under Arsene Wenger, instead, opting for a move to Old Trafford.

Luis Figo To Real Madrid

Figo became the new focus of the Barcelona–Real Madrid rivalry, with Barcelona fans feeling betrayed by his transfer. There were banners hung around the stadium when he returned to the Camp Nou with the words: "Traitor. Judas. Scum. Mercenary."

Ashley Cole To Chelsea

The man now known as ‘Cashley Cole’ at Arsenal left for Chelsea after the Gunners refused to pay him an extra £5,000-a-week in a proposed new deal. On his return to the Emirates, Arsenal fans made £50 notes with Cole’s face on it, and threw them onto the pitch during the game.

Carlos Tevez To Manchester City

Following a successful spell at Manchester United, Tevez made the switch across Manchester for a reported £47m, whre he became the first man to do so since Terry Cooke in 1999. After signing Tevez, Manchester City erected a blue 'Welcome to Manchester' billboard with Tevez in the background, however, he was not that well received on his return to Old Trafford.
