When players return to former clubs there is always drama, and more often than not the player seems to score.

Balotelli Italy Squad – Striker’s poor form may see him dropped.
Ronaldo Manchester United – Chances of deal grow increasingly remote.
Best Playermakers – World’s best number 10s.

Cesc Fabregas will face his former club Arsenal on Sunday, and he’s unlikely to get a good reception, despite the fact that it was Arsenal who rejected the opportunity to have him back at the club.

Here are some of the most famous goals scored by players returning to former clubs.

He was fined £25,000 for the action.
