10. Bosko Balaban Aston Villa
9. Igors Stepanovs (Arsenal)
8. Winston Bogarde (Chelsea)
"The Dutchman had enjoyed an illustrious playing career by the time he joined Chelsea, with spells at Ajax, Milan and Barcelona on his CV. Perhaps that's what convinced the Blues to give him such a lucrative contract in the summer of 2000 – but Bogarde's hopes of making an impact at Stamford Bridge were over before they had begun."
"Manager Claudio Ranieri had no interest in the player, who nonetheless opted to stay with Chelsea and see out his £40,000 a week contract instead of trying to find football elsewhere. Chelsea tried to force him to leave, even dropping him down to train with the youth teams, but Bogarde stubbornly remained as his career ticked away."
