Top 10: Worst Premier League strikers from Europe (1)

Published Add your comment

Every so often, a striker will come across from the continent and set the Premier League alight.

During the 90s, we were blessed with the likes of Dennis Bergkamp and Gianfranco Zola.

At the turn of the century, Thierry Henry and Ruud van Nistelrooy.

In the present day we have Luis Suarez and Sergio Aguero.

The history of the Premier League is full of them. But for every action, there is an equal and positive reaction.

For every Eric Cantona, there's a Steve Marlet. For every Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, there has to be a Mateja Kezman.

It is simple footballing physics after all.

It is far too early to consign Roberto Soldado to the big black book of players who have come over with a big reputation and failed to make an impact on the Premier League, but time is not exactly on his side.

He cost massive money, and he will be 29 at the end of the season.

He was not one for the future for Spurs, he is one very much for the here and now.

There are those however, who have come to England in the past and failed dismally.

In this instance, it is very much a case of the worse the failure, the bigger the reputation and the more money they cost the better.

Remember of course, it is players who have come over from abroad, so Andy Carroll doesn't count.
