Christian Panucci – Chelsea
8 Premier League Appearances, 0 Goals
Signed on a years loan by Chelsea from Inter Milan in 2000, Panucci had a pretty unremarkable time during his time at Stamford Bridge.
The sacking of Gianluca Vialli from Chelsea coincided with the appointment of Marco Tardelli at Inter Milan and Panucci returned to his parent club after only 10 appearances.
Jorge Costa – Charlton Athletic
21 Premier League Appearances 0 Goals
After a fallout with his manager at Porto, Costa made a surprise loan move to London to join Charlton Athletic in 2002.
Costa’s main motive for the move was to prove he was still worth a place in the Portuguese World Cup squad and excelled in the English Premier League prompting Charlton manager Alan Curbishley to try to sign him on a permanent deal.
Unfortunately for Charlton, Costa returned to Porto when the manager he had fallen out with had been sacked and replaced with Jose Mourinho who immediately reinstated him as captain.
