On 2 June 1991, manager George Graham allowed Gus Caesar to join Cambridge United on a free transfer, according to Arsenal.com.
Born in Tottenham’s side of North London, Caesar joined Arsenal in the summer of 1982, making his professional debut against Manchester United at Old Trafford in December 1985. After convincingly deputizing for the suspended Viv Anderson, Caesar would later on become one of the most reliable utility defenders, covering in all positions along the back despite being a natural center half.
History however, judges the defender cruelly, as his misfired clearance prompted a massive comeback that saw Luton Town come from behind to win the 1988 Littlewoods Cup. According to the Official Club website, Caesar made only 51 appearances during his nine year stay at the club, with 20 of them being from off the bench.
Signs of emotional distress as a result of the error against Luton were highly evident, consequently taking a toll on his general performance. He later departed from the club as a free agent after being loaned to Queens Park Rangers in the 1990/91 season.
