A FORMER Manchester United star has joined his 12th other club.
The 31-year-old has signed for Apoel, second in the Cypriot Premier League.

The former Red Devils prodigy became a cult hero after scoring two game-winning goals in his first two senior games in 2009.
The player is, of course, Federico Macheda.
He made 36 appearances for the club, scoring five goals, before finally signing for Cardiff City in 2014.
Macheda has also played for QPR, Doncaster, Birmingham, Cardiff and Nottingham Forest in England.
