Alex Song is better remembered at Barcelona for a VERY embarrassing trophy gaffe than anything he did on the pitch… and no wonder after admitting he joined 'to become a millionaire' after being told he would hardly play!

It’s easy to laugh along with former Arsenal midfielder Alex Song when he recounts how rich playing two seasons at Barcelona made him.

This week he was quoted by Cameroonian website Lion Indomptable, saying: ‘I met Barca’s sporting director, and he told me I would not get to play many games. But I didn’t give a f***. I knew that now I would become a millionaire.’

But behind the tale of how he was blown away by Barca’s generosity and the limited demands on what he had to do to earn the money, there is the tale of a player who should have made his move to the Nou Camp the next big step in his career instead of the moment he began to decline.
