One of the world's most lethal marksman, Hernán Crespo is deceptively quick and skilful and has been a regular goalscorer everywhere he has played.

A protégé of Daniel Passarella at CA River Plate, Crespo won two national championships in Argentina as well as a Copa Libertadores in 1996 before joining Parma AC, where he won the UEFA Cup and Coppa Italia in 1998/99 and another Italian Cup the following season. S.S. Lazio paid a then world record €60m to acquire Crespo, who finished the 2000/01 season as Serie A's top scorer with 26 goals. FC Internazionale Milano handed over €20m, plus Bernardo Corradi, to secure his services in summer 2002, but after an explosive start with the Nerazzurri a thigh injury halted his progress. Crespo joined Chelsea FC for €24.25m in 2003 but was unable to settle in London, scoring ten times in 19 Premiership appearances. He returned to Italy on a year-long loan at AC Milan, to be reunited with his former Parma coach Carlo Ancelotti, but the season ended in the disappointment of a UEFA Champions League final defeat against Liverpool despite Crespo's two goals. He returned to Chelsea refreshed for 2005/06 and scored their opening goal of the Premiership season, adding nine more as they retained their English crown. However, Crespo still wished to return to Italy and rejoined Inter on a two-year contract, with Chelsea retaining the right to take him back next summer.

Now watch Crespo's magic!!
