Top 5: PL Stars who have disappointed but will be raring to go next season
Every season of football brings the ups and downs in the life of a footballer. Star footballers are often under heavy pressure to perform at the top level and there are some players who have succumbed to the pressure or have been out of form this season, causing massive disappointment to fans. Here is a list of 5 Premier League Stars who have had a disappointing season but will be raring to bounce back again.
5. Juan Mata
The Chelsea star who had excellent first two seasons at Stamford Bridge was seen as surplus to requirements by new manager Jose Mourinho and was relegated to the bench. The diminutive playmaker from Spain was asked time and again to contribute more defensively by Mourinho. The Spaniard had a hard time adapting to life under manager Mourinho and failed to score a single Premier League goal for Chelsea in the first half of the campaign, something which was shocking considering that he had been the Blues’ Player of the Year twice in both his previous seasons. Inability to play in the wings as a proper winger would have been the issue for Mata, who loves playing as the main creator behind the striker. As a result, Mata was sold to Man Utd and Oscar got a permanent play-maker role.
Mata’s struggles have followed him at Old Trafford where now, he is finally looking to get back to form under David Moyes who is allowing Mata more flair and freedom even at the wings.
