Mark Hateley played in three countries outside of Britain, namely the U.S., France and Italy. Having emerged at Coventry, Hateley had a brief loan spell with Detroit Express. A move to Portsmouth saw Hateley begin scoring prolifically, earning himself a move to AC Milan. Hateley was steady if not spectacular
in Italy, winning his first England caps whilst with the club, where he spent three seasons.
Next, he moved to Monaco, where he would taste his greatest success outside of the UK. The Englishman scored 22 goals in 59 games winning the Ligue 1 title with Monaco in 1988.
