World Class Players That Failed In The Premier League

Angel di Maria

14 goal contributions in 27 league appearances for Manchester united

Gonzalo Higuain

5 goals in the 14 league appearances he made for Chelsea

1. Juan Sebastian Veron

The Argentinian failed to adapt to the speed of the Premier League and after two disappointing seasons was sold to Chelsea for around £20m

Radamel Falcao

Falcao had two stints in the Premier League, one at Manchester United and one at Chelsea. Unfortunately for the forward, neither of them were successful ventures. Falcao has scored 300 goals in his career, but just five of those were bagged during his two spells

Andriy Shevchenko

Shevchenko is still second on the list of AC Milan’s all-time top scorers with an incredible 175 goals, despite retiring a decade ago. But after joining Chelsea for around £40m in 2006, the forward failed to live up to his large price tag.

Diego Forlan

Despite going on to net over 200 career goals at the likes of Atletico Madrid and Villarreal, the forward failed to find his feet in England.

His poor return of just ten league goals in 63 appearances for the Red Devils meant the Uruguayan would eventually be sold
