Benito Carbone has applied for the manager's job at Bradford City.
He raised eyebrows when he joined the Bantams on a free transfer back in 2000 on a £40,000-a-week deal.
Despite his big pay packet, his memorable goals made him a big hit with the Valley Parade faithful.
And he further strengthened that status by agreeing to give millions of pounds in order to help the club stay afloat before returning to his Italian homeland to finish his career.
Now Carbone, 50, could be set for a stunning return to Bradford as boss after they sacked Derek Adams, says Sky Sports.
