Karembeu brought an abundance of talent to the Riverside when he signed for Middlesbrough during the summer and it soon became clear that his transfer fee was a real bargain. A midfielder-cum-striker with a lot to offer he soon proved his worth, winning over the fans with his exciting brand of soccer. Mostly used in an attacking midfield role, he will be hoping that the Boro' team he plays for next term is a more successful one.
