Ra­mon Vega

FourFourTwo - - ACTION REPLAY -

Who?

The Swiss de­fender has the dis­tinc­tion of be­ing the only man to fea­ture twice in FFT’S run­down of the worst play­ers at each English League club, for Tot­ten­ham and Wat­ford. A League Cup win­ner with the for­mer in 1998, the noted poly­glot once spoke of his love of English be­cause “it’s great to swear in”.

Too f**king right. A life re­lax­ing in sunny Mar­bella post-re­tire­ment?

He did start a soc­cer school there. Mainly, Ra­mon’s been busy mak­ing £15 mil­lion as the founder of an epony­mous as­set man­age­ment and real es­tate com­pany de­vel­op­ing ho­tels. Who says foot­ballers haven’t got brains?

An­other day, an­other dol­lar?

He tried and failed to pur­chase Portsmouth in 2009, but the sky re­ally is the limit now for Vega. In 2015 he was on the cover of Hedge mag­a­zine, so how long be­fore he’s bat­tling Lord Su­gar to be­come the true wolf of White Hart Lane?
