DAVID FANZEL UNDER THE SPOTLIGHT
Born Porto Alexandra (Portugal) 28th February 1946
Portuguese International (1 cap)
Clubs : Sporting Lisbon, Varzim, Sonjanonense, Belenenses, Red Star (1970-1972), Volendam (Holland) Despite arriving at Saint-Ouen with the tag of the second top scoria in the Portuguese championship, he never really made the mark with the public in France. a meagre tally of five goals in 1970-71 was relatively poor for a number nine. His 90 minutes of glory came in the last match of the season at Valenciennes. In scoring the two goals which won a relegation dogfight and kept Red Star in D1, Ferreira lost his boots as the crowd of 500 Red Star supporters whom had made the trip in 10 busses invaded the pitch. A full Stade Nungesser saw Red Star save their D1 skins. After the match the Parisians sunk a beer or two whilst the " Northerners " drowned their sorrows. This was my first away match with Red Star. A few days later, the headlines read: 'Ferreira, the man who brings 5 million francs to Red Star'. This was the value of staying in D1.
