It’s kind to no-one. It can ruin careers. It can make you a laughing stock. Welcome to the cut throat world of the Premier League.

The toughest competition in the world. When men from foreign lands seek to try their luck in the English game, an immediate impact must be made in order to survive.For these unfortunate 15, the Premier League chewed up their careers and were spat back out into a world that they were no longer wanted in, thanks to their inability to adapt to the fast pace and physicality of football in England.

It must be hard to establish yourself in the league, especially given the demands of English fans, the brutality of the English press and the impatience of owners whose hard earned money was spent on you.

These are the exceptions. No excuses should be made for how awful these 15 players were. Some lasted a couple of years, some last 53 minutes. Regardless, most are players who came with expectancy on their shoulder and wholly failed to deliver.
