Top 10 Footballers Who Ruined their careers
4. Juan Sebastian Veron
ormer Argentina international Juan Veron was enjoying his best footballing years in Italy when Manchester United came knocking for his signature. Sir Alex Ferguson broke the bank and shipped him in for £28 million, the then most expensive transfer in English football. Very naturally, when a player has been brought on for a hefty sum, the pressure of delivering does pile on his shoulders and this midfielder succumbed to that pressure and failed to live up to his price tag. Having represented the Red Devils on just 51 occasions, Veron was moved to Chelsea where his struggles continued.
