This is the start of a weekly series we will be doing on players of the past from all over the world that we feel have been forgotten or were under-appreciated during their playing days. This may give some people a chance to view players they had misremembered or even bring these talents to those who have never heard of them.
Karim Bagheri was an Iranian midfielder who came to prominence during the late 90s and through to the 00s. He possessed an almighty right foot and frequently scored goals from midfield most players can only dream about. Despite being one of the iconic players in Asia during his playing years, his career went by relatively unnoticed by most in the West.

Tuesday night’s clash between Borussia Dortmund and Malaga played host to perhaps the most dramatic and entertaining ending of recent Champions League history. When it looked as though Malaga’s shock troops had done enough to see them through with the home side all but succumbed to defeat, Jurgen Klopp’s players drew one last breath and threw themselves into the breach. Aided of course by some poor officiating (of which both sides can claim to be on the end of) for the all decisive final goal, they grasped victory from the jaws of despair through the sheer force of will on a night when it just hadn’t clicked for them.

In the past few years Blackburn Rovers have descended from being a well-run, well-respected Premier League club to a Championship side which, thanks to the actions of their owners, has become a laughing stock and a basket case off the pitch. On Tuesday, there was yet another fiasco, when Blackburn fired manager Michael Appleton, after a mere 67 days in charge, meaning that Rovers have now had four different managers in charge this season.
