It’s a humiliation. Chelsea’s Thierry Henry has been voted the most disappointing player in the English Premier League (EPL) by a local media outlet.
On Thursday (June 14), British publication Give Me Sports named the 10 most disappointing players of the 2022-23 season. Four Chelsea players made the list.” The list excludes players like Manchester City’s Calvin Phillips, who barely played a game.
At the top of the list was Tottenham Hotspur’s Dele Alli. He joined Spurs this season for €58 million ($801 million). The Frenchman is known for his consistency, having scored at least 10 goals in all competitions during his four seasons at Everton. Expectations were high that he would inject tension into the trio of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, and Dejan Kuluczewski.메이저놀이터
When the lid was lifted, it was a disappointment. He hasn’t lived up to his transfer fee, with a miserable 1 goal and 4 assists. He was completely out of contention for a starting spot, making just 17 starts in 35 games, about half the total. His nagging injuries didn’t help Spurs’ rotation either.
Spurs have also fallen off a cliff with him. Spurs finished eighth in the league this season after a shaky showing across the board. They didn’t even qualify for European competition, let alone the UEFA Champions League (UCL).
Chelsea have made a lot of signings, but they’ve also had a lot of misses. A whopping four players made the list. Among the summer signings, Raheem Sterling (#8), Kalidou Koulibaly (#5), and Mark Cucurella (#2) were among the disappointments. All of them underperformed compared to their former clubs.
Mikhail Mourinho, who joined the club last winter for a total transfer fee of €100 million, was the only new signing to make it to the top three. Chelsea succeeded in “hijacking” the competition from Arsenal to land Mourinho, but Mourinho hasn’t helped the team at all, with no goals and two assists for Chelsea.
In fourth place is Anthony Gordon, who joined Newcastle United from Everton in the winter transfer window. Brentford’s Mikel Damsgård (6th), Aston Villa’s Philippe Coutinho (7th), West Ham United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic (9th), and Manchester United’s Anthony Martial (10th) round out the list of dishonorable mentions.
