Colin Kazim-Richards, born in England on the 26th of August 1986, weighs in at a sturdy 14st 13lb and stands a mannerly 6 feet 1 inch tall. This forward with a preference for the striker position, began his football foray at Bury in 2004, scoring thrice from a handy 30 appearances.

Thereafter, the lad took a trip south to Brighton & Hove Albion in 2005, knocking in 6 goals across 42 appearances. After a solitary run out with Sheffield United in the 2006 season, Kazim-Richards made the leap to Fenerbahce in Turkey. Over the next three seasons, he made 61 appearances with 5 goals.

The lad then fancied a brief stint in France with Toulouse in 2009, scoring twice in 15 matches. Swiftly moving back to Istanbul, he played for Fenerbahce, bagging three goals across 11 run outs. Early 2011, he turned out for Galatasaray, scoring 6 times in 31 outings.

Somewhat of a footballing globetrotter, Colin then took himself to Greece, England, and Turkey, playing for Olympiacos, Blackburn Rovers and Bursaspor respectively - a modest return of 4 goals in 53 appearances across these clubs.

Next on the journey was a brush with the Dutch, playing for Feyenoord from 2014 to 2016. A reasonably successful spell saw him knock in a neat 12 goals across 38 appearances. Kazim-Richards then ventured into old Glasgow town with a stint at Celtic, with a slender return of 1 goal from 11 appearances in the 2015-2016 season.

Following Celtic, the not-so-prolific striker played a brief spell for Coritiba in Brazil, scoring thrice from 21 games, before hopping over to Corinthians where he managed a humble single goal from 15 appearances.

After that, Mexico became Kazim-Richardsโ€™s newest employer, where he had stints with Lobos BUAP, Veracruz and Pachuca from 2018 to 2020. With sporadic first team appearances, he managed to net nine times in 31 appearances.

Returning to England in 2021, Kazim-Richards turned out for Derby Country, scoring eleven times across 61 games, before wrapping up his final season at Fatih Karagumruk in Turkey for the 2022-2023 season.

In short, Colin Kazim-Richards, the footloose footballer, has had more clubs than most golfers: 17 clubs over 19 years and a modest tally of 59 goals thrown in. Not exactly the stuff of legend...
