There are many players who promised a lot and came to nothing in the history of football, but players who did not promise anything and became stars are more difficult to find. Here we leave you 10 cases:
He started his career with no luck. He did not settle in any team until he arrived at Saint Etienne. From there he began to stand out until he reached Dortmund where he made himself known to the world. After passing through Arsenal he has recently arrived at Barcelona where his goalscoring figures are being that of a world top player.
He was a footballer who had a hard time exploiting. He came out of the Spurs youth academy and spent several years with teams like Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich and Leicester. Since 2013 where he scored 30 goals for Tottenham, his goalscoring figures have not stopped increasing.
When Manchester United was still a player nobody bet on him. He had to go in search of minutes to Juventus where he became one of the midfielders of the moment. After letting him out for free, Manchester paid €120M for a player who was from the house.
Story like Pogba’s. Chelsea did not bet on him, they believed that he did not have the necessary level and after passing through big clubs, such as United or Inter, where he gave his best level, Chelsea bought him again for €100M.
Like Salah, he signed for Chelsea, but he did not have opportunities to shine, so he headed to Wolfsburg where he became an exceptional player. Manchester City paid a lot of money for the Belgian and showed that he is in the top 10 best midfielders of the last decade.
He signed for Chelsea from Basel, but no one gave him the opportunity to realize his full potential. After going through Fiorentina and Roma, Liverpool got one of the best players of the last decade.
His start to his career was not easy at all, the bad moment that Barcelona was going through and the lack of shine that Andrés had meant that he would be a broken toy from the quarry, but time proved him right. He became an icon of Barcelona and the author of the thing that made all Spaniards happier.
His bravado and arrogance on the pitch made one think that Zlatan would fall by the wayside as has happened with many other players, but time has proved him right. He has been crowned one of the best strikers in history.
At the beginning of his career nobody trusted him, what’s more, they nicknamed him “fails goals´´. After standing out at Dortmund he signed for the greatest in Germany and years later he has been able to show that he is one of the best scorers that will remain in the memory.
His short stature and his complicated start in Barcelona made many experts predict a not too successful future for the good Leo Messi. Years later we can say that he is the best footballer in the history of this sport.
