November 23, 1996 is a historic day for English football. AliDia, a footballer with no particular talent who passes himself off as Weah’s cousin, manages to fulfill his dream and take the field in the Premier League with the jersey of Southampton. A legendary story, which has transformed Ali Dia into a legend of football across the Channel, to the point of becoming synonymous with the bin in His Majesty’s championship. It is therefore not surprising that the magazine FourFourTwo, posting the worst signings ever to hit the pitches of the Premier League, put him first. But among the 50 nominated there is also a lot of Italy. Players with a tricolor passport or foreign players who in any case have not left their mark even in Serie A. Massimo’s story is strange Taibi: Sir Alex Ferguson is impressed by the confidence shown by the goalkeeper with Venice and he absolutely wants him on the field with the shirt of the ManchesterUnited. The conditions are all there: debut and MVP against Chelsea but the Italian goalkeeper, also thanks to some personal problems, will never be able to find continuity of performance. The blunder with Southampton is the beginning of the end of his adventure across the Channel.
