He went to Notts County for a season in what is now the Championship, where Legg was a team-mate.
"We knew he had played at the World Cup and when he joined us it was obvious he was such an athlete – he was unbelievable," Legg, now manager at Llanelli, told the Independent. "One game he was played at left-back and he would end up on the right wing. He was a quiet lad and kept himself to himself.
"We didn't have a great season [County finished bottom, 14 points from safety] and he didn't play much. It didn't work out, but he was strong and powerful and when he went on a run he really did go on a run."
