TOP 10 ENGLAND PLAYERS WHO WERE PREMATURELY DUBBED ‘THE NEXT BIG THING’

9 – Shaun Wright-Philips

Talent is never enough in football. Players in the Premier League are constantly under pressure to produce at elite levels, which is why so many English players fail to live up to their potential. Once considered as one of the best up-and-coming English players, Shaun Wright-Philips reached his full potential. He played for Manchester City until 2005, the year he moved to Chelsea for £21 million. Wright-Philips had all the talent to make it big, but he failed to live up to the expectations. He couldn’t secure a place in Chelsea’s starting XI, no matter how hard he tried. Maybe luck wasn’t in his favor.
