10: Ibrahim Afellay - Barcelona

Football News

When Afellay was at PSV he was tipped to become one of the world's most exciting wingers. In 2011 he got his big move to Barcelona, and many assume it would be plain sailing from there on in.

It hasn't. Since Afellay's arrival at the Nou Camp he's largely struggled to make appearances against the lesser known teams Spain has to offer, let alone making it into the squad for big games. In the 2012/13 season he was loaned out to Schalke for the entirety of the campaign, and since his return he's only managed to make two appearances in all competitions this term. 

For us he's far too good to be rotting on the bench, regardless of who's in front of him. A clear case of a talent who simply isn't appreciated.
