Clarence Acuna was signed by Sir Bobby Robson for Newcastle United in the face of stiff competition from Parma and Manchester United. And the dynamic midfielder did well during his time at the club netting 7 times for the club.
He eventually left the Magpies by mutual consent and returned to Chile to care for his sick mother.
Acuna played an impressive 60 times for his county, including in the 1998 France World Cup.
