10. Javier Saviola

Javier Saviola could have been one of the world’s best players, but he failed to reach his true potential. The diminutive Argentine forward was widely regarded as one of the most promising players in the early 2000s. In 2001, he joined Barcelona for a £15 million fee. El Conejo(The Rabbit) is known for his impressive dribbling abilities, speed and eye for the goal. Saviola scored 50 goals in 144 appearances for Barcelona. The Argentine has won several trophies, but he never lived up to his abilities. Saviola is the proverbial question, ‘what could have been?”
