The French full back was remarkably gifted, setting up numerous goals in the early months of Chris Coleman’s first full season in charge at Fulham, but his stint in west London was cut short by a succession of injuries. Bonnissel looked outstanding at left back in 2003/04, helping Fulham record famous win at Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, but injured his ankle on Boxing Day against Southampton and never played for the club again. His sixteen senior appearances were a fleeting glimpse of just what might have been.
