89 games for West Brom: How is Marc-Antoine Fortune getting on these days?

When West Bromwich Albion signed Marc-Antoine Fortune for the second time in 2010 from Celtic following a brief loan spell at the Hawthorns, they would have been hoping that the forward could take them to new heights.

Signed for an undisclosed fee, the Frenchman ultimately failed to deliver the goods at Premier League level during his three-year stint in the West Midlands.

An inconsistent debut campaign resulted in Fortune scoring just twice in 27 appearances as he struggled to adapt to the competitiveness of the top-tier of English football.

In the following season, the forward was briefly loaned out to Doncaster United before returning early to West Brom who were facing an injury crisis at the time.

A continuation of his poor form eventually culminated in Fortune being allowed to leave in 2013 by the Baggies.

During his time at the club, the forward played 89 games in all competitions in which he scored 13 goals.

So how is Fortune getting on these days?

Fortune opted to join Wigan Athletic after cutting ties with the Baggies and went on to represent the club in the Championship for two seasons.

Although the forward did illustrate some signs of promise during his time at the DW Stadium, he only managed to find the back of the net on seven occasions in 86 appearances before moving to Coventry City in 2015.

Despite dropping down a level to League One, Fortune’s struggles in-front of goal continued as he only scored four times for the Sky Blues.

Which club did West Brom sign Matheus Pereira from on loan in the summer transfer window?

A two-year spell at Southend United then followed for the forward who provided 18 direct goal contributions for the club before joining Chesterfield Town in 2018.

Whilst the 38-year-old was relatively impressive in the National League for the Spireites last season, he was released by the club earlier this year.

Currently without a club, it will be intriguing to see whether Fortune decides to call time on his professional career in the not too distant future.
