Winston Bogarde – Chelsea

9 Premier League Appearances, 0 Goals

Signing for Chelsea after success across Europe with Ajax, Milan and Barcelona, Bogarde’s time at the club is mostly remembered for his refusal to leave the club even though he wasn’t getting selected to play.

Reportedly earning £40,000 a week, Bogarde honoured his contract to the letter and turned up to training every day and played for both the reserve and youth teams. Once his contract expired, Bogarde retired from playing.

 

Michael Reiziger – Middlesbrough

22 Premier League Appearances, 1 Goal

 

Arriving at Middlesbrough in 2004 after a seven-year spell at Barcelona, Reiziger’s time at the club was ravaged by injuries and poor form.

Unable to replicate the form he showed at Barcelona, Reiziger ended up returning to Holland with PSV after making only 22 Premier League appearances over two seasons.

 

George Weah – Chelsea

18 Premier League Appearances, 4 Goals

Former World Player of the year and 90s footballing superstar George Weah arrived at Chelsea in 2000 on loan from AC Milan.

At 33 he was arguably past his best but he revitalised a Chelsea team struggling to find the net with a goal on his debut against Tottenham Hotspur.

Adored by the Chelsea fans, the love affair ended at the end of the season after he helped them to win the 2000 FA Cup.
