Top 5: England players that shouldn't go to the World Cup (6)

Published Add your comment

Joleon Lescott

When filthy rich foreign owners come into a football club there is a window of time where money is spent ridiculously on players who aren't even conceivably worth the fee.

Abramovich had Shaun Wright-Phillips for example. Manchester City's owners have Joleon Lescott. The millions they have spent on Lescott in transfer fees and wages is hilarious but not actually funny.

There is a reason why both Mancini and Pellegrini have both seemed less than eager to feature the ex-Evertonian. It is because, at top level, international tournaments and Champions League games, Lescott's lack of pace and game awareness are painfully exposed.

If Lescott gets onto the pitch for England, we will really be in trouble.
