Premier League cast-offs coming to sit on a bench near you
Where next for this illustrious collection of unwanted men?
It’s that joyous time of year when clubs cast aside their deadwood and the scramble for second-rate freebies gets underway. These poor souls are on the hunt for new contracts, so here’s how it might look if someone took pity on the whole sorry bunch.
Champions League winners Salomon Kalou and Jose Bosingwa will perhaps feel slightly aggrieved to find themselves in the same company as Danny Gabbidon, but they can at least be thankful that Emile Heskey narrowly missed out. Every cloud.
We’ve opted for a very continental 4-3-1-2 formation, just because we can. So feast your eyes on this.
Jose Bosingwa, Carlos Cuellar, Danny Gabbidon, Fabio Aurelio
Owen Hargreaves, Nigel Reo-Coker, Paul Scharner
Michael Owen, Ivan Klasnic
