It’s the dream job that millions of us pine for almost every other day we walk into the workplace. Something that we dream for, yet never believe is a reality. A job that we would all fight to the bitter end for, not matter what the consequence. Premier League football I hear you say? Don’t be silly. We’re talking about getting paid £70k-odd a week for doing precisely diddly squat.
Here are the men paid thousands to live the dream, yet they’re not actually living it. Rather sitting abjectly on their respective benches, treatment tables and FA disciplinary hearings, letting their talents rot away and playing as little football as possible. Here are the 10 biggest wastes and misuses of talent, currently residing in the Premier League today.
Some have been hit by misfortune, others by stunning levels of bad man management. A few of these players have been distinctly deluded, others simply kept out the team by pure mediocrity. None are likely to make your fantasy team. But they’ve all still got something to offer to the top flight. So savour and enjoy – just don’t get their name printed on the back of your shirt this season.
