Top 5 worst transfers of the year 2021
The grass is not always greener. This article by Naija News 247 focus on the five least successful transfers of the 2021 calendar.
The grass is not always greener. This article by Naija News 247 will focus on the five least successful transfers of the 2021 calendar. Sergio Ramos is the head of this unflattering shortlist.
- Sergio Ramos (PSG)
Who to save Private Ramos? Six months after his arrival at the end of his contract with great fanfare in Paris, his adventure in the capital has never really started, for the moment, with only 175 minutes of play on the clock. An injury-related ignition delay and possibly an internal misunderstanding about how to “manage” his body. In the meantime, its real level and its sporting added value in the workforce raise questions.
- Saul Ñiguez (Chelsea)
The other Madrilenian on this list. Saúl had the courage to leave Atlético, his club of always, to go to the collision. Cap on Chelsea to occupy a more “central” place on the ground (he was tired of his role of “convenience store” in Madrid). Unfortunately, in London, his role is even more peripheral than Atlético. And when he plays, he makes mistakes. It is rumored that Chelsea could cut their loan short in January. Cruel?
- Gerson (Marseilles)
SOS Gerson, the flagship recruit of the XXL transfer window of Olympic Marseille is also the least in sight, for the moment. There was a better shot in December, but given the twenty million bricks spent by Marseille, supporters expect more.
- Luuk de Jong (FC Barcelona)
Despite himself, summer rookie Luuk de Jong crystallized the frustration and grievance of Barcelona fans. The critics are undoubtedly too harsh, but the many failures of the former Sevillian have given ground to grind to its detractors. In his defense, it is difficult for a rookie to express himself in a context as delicate as Camp Nou at the present time.
- Mario Mandzukic (Milan)
Arrived in Milan in January 2021 to compensate for the injury of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Mandzukic spent most of his time in the infirmary. Result of the races: ten matches played, no goals on the clock and a retirement at the end of the season. A well-deserved rest in view of his glorious career; we easily forgive him his amorphous six months in Milan.
