It’s been more than 25 years since the inception of the Premier League - and we’ve witnessed some incredible moments.

Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal going unbeaten, Sergio Aguero’s incredible title-winning goal and Leicester City doing the unthinkable and winning the league at odds of 5000/1.

We’ve also seen some incredible players with foreign imports taking the English top-flight to new levels.

The likes of Eric Cantona, Dennis Bergkamp, Gianfranco Zola and Thierry Henry are up there when discussing the best player to have ever played Premier League football.

But who is the worst player to have played in the league?

THE WORST 10 PLAYERS

Are you ready for the ‘top 10’?

While Manchester United have won the Premier League 13 times, they actually have two former players in the worst 10 players to have ever played in the league.

Elsewhere, a disastrous Arsenal defender features as well as a less-than-prolific striker.

And, at number one, is a complete and utter fraud.

Here are the worst 10 players in Premier League history:

10. BOSKO BALABAN

THE ALI DIA STORY...

Ah, the infamous Ali Dia.

Just in case you don’t know the story behind the former Southampton player, let us explain…

Apparently, back in 1995, Dia had phoned around several Premier League clubs claiming to be George Weah’s cousin. He had trials at Coventry and Bournemouth but, after seeing him play, unsurprisingly turned him down.

But Southampton boss Graeme Souness believed Dia’s story and, despite seeing him in training, put him on the bench for a match against Leeds. And, after Matt Le Tissier got injured just after half-time, Dia was introduced.

But that second-half cameo was all that was needed to work out that he wasn’t very good at all.

He left Southampton and went to the other side of the country and played for Gateshead for eight matches, before seemingly disappearing altogether.
