It has been a roller coaster ride in this year’s Barclays Premier League. Quite deservedly, Leicester City are crowned the champions of England and the rest of the ‘Big Guns’ finished with an average point tally in their hand.

A lot of transfer took place before the start of the 2015-16 season and many of them were supposed to take their side to a different level. The London and Manchester clubs cracked the bank to secure the services of some top quality players, but the sides failed to acquire even a single trophy this season (United still has FA cup to play for).

The season took a U-turn and all the favours were shifted to the extremely unlikely teams. With many new signings did a great job for the mid table teams, many of them showed the worst side of their play. Players like Dimitri Payet, Kante, Anthony Martial lived more than their expectations.

Here are the 3 worst signings of this season’s Premier League-

Christian Benteke-

Christian Benteke

The second most expensive transfer for Liverpool never had that game changing impact he previously had. He signed for Liverpool on 22 July 2015 and was expected to replace the legacy Luis Suarez. The Belgian center forward was considered as one of the best in the league while his time at Aston Villa.

The 25-year-old goal poacher dipped his form badly after joining the reds and eventually lost his position in Jürgen Klopp’s plans. Benteke has scored just 9 goals this season in the Premier league, and is considered as the 3rd choice center forward. His fellow countryman Divock Origi has found the place in team’s starting eleven ahead of him, but Benteke has not.

He may leave the club at the end of the season, and honestly, that will be the best option for the Belgian in order to get first team opportunities.
