Steve Marlet


Steve Marlet was Fulham‘s record signing when he joined from Lyon for 11.5 million pounds in 2001. Marlet was so disappointing and over priced that Fulham owner Mohammed Al Fayed would later become suspicious that he had been defrauded by then manager Jean Tigana, although Al Fayed lost the resulting court case. Marlet ultimately cost Fulham a lot of money, Tigana his job and reputation and the player himself never re-discovered the form he had previously showed for Lyon and no-one knows why.
