Ryan Babel 

Ryan Babel, the famous Dutch player was always eyed for his impressive performances on the ground. After winning two Dutch titles, Ryan was moved to Liverpool at 11.5 m and even appeared at the Euro Championship in the U-21 side. Despite of having massive abilities the striker was unable to produce any consistency and productivity at the English club. Liverpool lost his patience with him and he was moved to 1899 Hoffenheim. 

Philippe Christanval 

Philippe Christanval’s journey was quite heart wrenching as he started out quite big but ended up with nothing. He became the Ligue 1 young player of the year followed by his signing in the Barcelona FC. But he retired too soon and stayed without a club all at the age of 29. The centre back earned six caps for France but was never too good with Barcelona. He quit from the game at 2009 and was unable to secure any more contracts. 

Harry Kewell 

Harry Kewell could have gone a long way in the game had his injuries not come in the way. The Australian impressed everyone around him and was signed by Liverpool in 2003. He had many achievements and got awarded for the PFA young player of the Year and reached the semifinals of both UEFA Cup and Champions League. But injuries took a toll in his career and he spent five years trying to recover. Though he is playing in the Australian A league but was unable to show his potential like he did in Leeds. 

Kleberson 

Kleberson was taken by Manchester United after winning the World Cup. However United did not get what they sought beforehand. He got injured after the second game of the club and somehow managed 20 appearances before the stage shut for him. 

El Hadji Diouf 

El Hadji Diouf was expected to show his potential in English football but however, everyone was disappointed with him. He was named in the World cup team. He gave 69 appearances for the Reds and scored only 3 goals before he was sold to Bolton. He is even there in the Champions club Leeds United. 

Candido Costa 

Candido Costa was named by some as “the next Luis Figo” and was signed for FC Porto. But as time passed, he did not justify his name and neither was he able to manage his position in the club for long. The only thing that remained common between him and the Real Madrid star is the Portuguese link.
