LaLiga closed the curtain after an intense season in which many footballers rose to fame… although not all. Here we present the ‘eleven’ of failures, the players who did not meet the expectations placed on them at the beginning of the championship.
He was one of the most expected reinforcements and seemed to be called the guardian of the parakeet goal for many seasons, however, the pressure played tricks on him and prevented him from performing as expected, making some rude mistakes .
It cost 16 million euros and he arrived from Bayern Munich, which should have been a guarantee, but due to the urgency he had to act as the head of the defense when he was not ready. Injuries and nerves due to his youth (20 years) also played with him.
He was the defensive bet of the summer and came to replace the departure of Diego Carlos and Koundé, but in his first season in Seville he had to survive a trial with injuries. He has only played five games.
A move that did not go as desired. The Madrid winger will return to LaLiga and has had a more than cautious move to Atlético de Madrid, where he has chained more injuries than games. He only made 10 appearances in LaLiga.
He was one of the great claims of the rojiblanca squad, but he was unable to establish himself as one of Míchel’s regulars. One goal and one assist in 17 games is the Brazilian’s weak baggage from Real Madrid.
His quality is unquestionable, but more is expected of him. Injuries weighed on him and prevented him from performing like he used to before coming to PSG.
LaLiga’s most expensive summer signing ended his first season at Real Madrid, who shelled out 80 million euros to replace Casemiro.
What was seen at the beginning of the course remained an anecdote, because in the decisive stretch, when the team needed him the most, he lost ownership due to his poor performance.
His signing has Getafe all excited, but he is not the unbalanced footballer destined to make a difference. 34 games in LaLiga where he didn’t score a single goal.
The ‘matador’ is a signing of the bells. He joined late and gradually worked his way into the team, scoring several goals. But after the World Cup he only scored once, on December 31 against Villarreal. Still unpublished as of 2023.
It’s on this list not for performance, but for not being able to show what it’s worth. La Real signed him for 20 million euros and upon his arrival he was injured throughout the season.
