Here, he explains to Retro Football Blog what made Wegerle so special.
“In those two seasons at QPR he was top scorer and won goal of the season in 1990 for an amazing solo Lionel Messi/Maradona-esque goal against Leeds where he ran around about six or seven players.
“He had flamboyant flair and scored a lot of goals in the 1990/91 season, famously scoring at Anfield, but the Leeds one would be the one everyone remembers and the fact we won at Elland Road, where we didn’t win at very often made it a good day.
“I tried to track him down about a year/18 months ago because he fell off of most people’s radar when he left football. He went off to become a pro golfer and did reasonably well but he was really hard to find because he’s not the kind of guy you see on Twitter or anything like that. I managed to get an email address for him and we had some correspondence through there.
“For me, it was amazing to speak to him, although I wasn’t 100 per cent sure it was him! Unfortunately, he just doesn’t want to talk about his football career anymore. He’s moved on and does some coaching in Miami with kids but apart from that he’s reluctant to do anything, which is a real shame because I think there are some QPR fans who would love to hear from him. I’m still bugging him a little bit to see if I can twist his arm.
“There's a Twitter page @WeWantWegerle started by me and a friend of mine and it’s got very few followers and it was just to try and entice him to talk, but he’s not budging at the moment.
“It wasn't a big surprise when he left QPR, it just kind of happened. He was phased out of the team and was sold by Gerry Francis, who I don’t think really got the best out of him, as he played his best football under Don Howe.
"I was gutted, he was my hero, I pretended to be him on the playground and at that age I couldn’t understand why you’d get rid of one of your best players. I think we could have got more out of him and I don’t think he wanted to leave, but he went to Blackburn then Coventry and had some success there, however, I think his heart in England was at QPR and he played his best football at Loftus Road.
“He really was loved, which is quite surprising because he wasn’t there that long, but he was that guy who got you off your feet. In latter days we’ve had it in Adel Taarabt, in the 70s we had Stan Bowles, Rodney Marsh in the no.10 role and Roy is also loved and well received down at Loftus Road.
“We have an obsession with no.10s at QPR and he was very much in that mould and it brings a smile to people’s faces when they ask: ‘who is your favourite player?’ I think they expect me to say Trevor Sinclair or Les Ferdinand, but for me it has always been Roy.”
