Loic Remy
Does Remy deserve his Premier League medal?

Since the inception of the Premier League in 1992 we have seen some amazing players to have displayed their skill in the league. The likes of Eric Cantona, Thierry Henry, and Cristiano Ronaldo have wowed audiences with their superb technique and ability.

Players of that calibre have gone on to achieve success in England lifting the Premier League trophy more than once. But there are those players who also earn a winners’ medal despite their minimal involvement or their obvious lack of contribution. 

These players should consider themselves lucky to have been part of a title winning side. So here are 10 players who did not deserve to win the Premier League.

10) Stevan Jovetic 

Setvan Jovetic

Jovetic came with real promise after a great showing in Serie A. The Montenegrin striker spent five seasons with Fiorentina scoring 35 goals in 116 appearances. He was considered one of the best young forwards in Europe at that point with several clubs including Arsenal and Manchester City chasing his signature.

City won the race paying £22 million to the Italian club to secure his services. Jovetic won the title with the club in 2013/14 but did do much to aid them during that season. He made only 11 appearances scoring thrice as Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko Alvaro Negredo were above him in the pecking order.

It was a disappointment considering the reputation he had brought with him when he joined the club. He eventually left in the summer of 2015 joining Inter Milan.
