ISL 2017: Top 5 Kerala Blasters players who have underperformed so far this season
These players are yet to live up to the expectations of the fans so far.
The Kerala Blasters had finished runners-up in the previous season of the Indian Super League and ahead of this ISL edition, they made quite a splash and signed some big-name players including Dimitar Berbatov, Iain Hume, Wes Brown etc.
However, despite all the money spent, the team has endured a slow start to the campaign. Having played their first three games at home this season, they have failed to register even a single win and even went 194 minutes without scoring a goal.
In this article, we take a look at the players who have been below par so far!
#5 Rino Anto
The 29-year-old right back has been a weak performer this season and has failed to live up to his reputation. With a number of bad passes and poor crosses in the first two games, Anto had a couple of encounters to forget.
Anto seems to have lost a yard of pace as well this season and on a number of occasions, he has left the right side of the Kerala defence exposed and vulnerable to attacks due to his delay in tracking back.
