Here I have picked 5 players who are overrated from Premier League, La Liga, Serie A etc.
These five players are playing in top clubs and earning high salaries, these are highly rated especially by their fans.
The Brazilian also deserves to be in this list. Why? Because he is overrated. How? Because he has not proved his worth, he has not fulfilled the expectations of fans. He scored 78 goals for Porto in 169 matches but has not showed much for his country and new club Zenit Saint Petersburg who signed him for £48 million two years ago from Porto. In Russia he is still struggling in front of goal. He didn’t even score a single goal for Brazil in the Confederations Cup last year. So why to rate this guy high?
Demba Ba, Chelsea bench warmer is also in this list, when he was playing for Newcastle he was good but when he signed for Chelsea he becomes overrated because when anyone comes to big club, expectation increases and it’s difficult to fulfil.
Benzema is playing for one of the biggest club in the World, Real Madrid. The 25-year-old arrived in Spain to sign for Madrid in 2009 after leaving French side Lyon. At club level, he is a good player, he has scored 100 goals in 210 games for Madrid. The Frenchman has pace, strength and finishing but his record for his country is not really exceptional. Few months ago he scored a goal for France which was about after 14 months.
Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck is also overrated. He has not showed any sign of consistency. He has not even scored more than 10 goals in Premier League, then why to rate him high? While his teammate Javier Hernández (Chicharito) is underrated.
Stephan El Shaarawy
Another young talent who is good but not that much. He is young talented, skillful, speedy but why to expect so high from him?
The 21-year-old scored 16 goals in Serie A last season and people compared him with top players. Fans should wait and judge him for his consistency.
Do you agree?
