Forgotten Chelsea No 9 labelled 'the new Maradona' now plays in Turkey

Chelsea's No 9 shirt curse stretches back so far that you'd be forgiven for forgetting every player to have struggled while wearing it - and Franco Di Santo slips the mind more than most.He was given the honour, if it can be called that at this point, of being handed the shirt for the 2008/09 season, despite having just spent half a year in the Blues' reserve side.
