Maceo rigters? Used to play for blackburn rovers and finished top goal scored in the 2007 u-21s euro championships. Was tipped for big things. Well this is him now playing for his sunday league side, what a demise.

Crazy!

Big things were expected of a few of that Dutch team. Babel, Drenthe and Rigters have all failed to realise their potential, Rigters failing the most spectacularly by the look of it.

Definitely. Babel and drenthe had alot of potential but theyve all still made a fair few £££ but rigters wow. He must be atleast 19/20 stone in that photo now.

Agreed, they'll have made a decent living but the potential they both had hasn't resulted in the careers many envisaged for them. Rigters looks a different story altogether, something has went extremely wrong somewhere in his life let alone career by the looks of it.

Yeah, he was going for buttons considering he had just had an awesome tournament with the dutch under 21s. I was itching for us to sign him at the time.

My mate was seething when he joined rovers :)

How do you even let yourself go that badly after being a professional athlete?

Remember Micheal Johnson of Man City, broke into team ten years or so back and tipped as the next big thing.

Fell out the picture when all the big money buys started arriving and chucked the game at age 23 or something, suffered depression and stuff and now an 18 stone alcoholic jakeball. Pretty grim

I'm sure he had 2 or 3 really bad injuries and just couldn't get fit again, and because of all the time off he was having he just went out all the time and lost his desire to play again.

Pretty sure he signed a 5 year £40k a week contract before he got his injury so he'll no be short of a few quid.

Nearly signed for Aberdeen in the summer of 2011. Remember seeing him in the main stand at Tynecastle when Hearts beat us 3-0 at the start of the season, he left well before the final whistle.
