The Siya crew has put together a list of 13 signings that never really worked out and seemed strange to begin with.

And top of the list is Ejike Uzoenyi, the Nigerian attacker the Brazilians reportedly paid over R12-million to land his signature seven years ago shortly after the CHAN tournament held in South Africa.

He had a stellar tournament and the interest gained momentum from there, and as a teenager Uzoenyi had played in the French league.

But the truth is he never really got going, and the fans questioned his age quite a lot.
When he did eventually make his debut, it was one to forget and he made two appearances only before he moved to Ajax Cape Town.

At the time he was said to be earning R12-million a year at Sundowns and has since been labelled the most expensive flop in Mzansi.
