Top 10 worst strikers in the world right now
Herein lie 10 players that haven't done justice to the striker tag.
Leading the line for a football team is perhaps the most privileged role for a footballer. Being a striker gives a footballer a lot of scope to bathe in glory. After all, he is the nearest to the goal and has chances aplenty to find the net.
Even when a striker misses, he has a chance to make the fans forget about the mishap with a goal somewhere during the game. However, even then, there are some strikers playing in the top-level that miss more than they score.
While it is not a good practice to name and shame, here are the top 10 worst strikers playing in the top-tier of world football.
#10 Alvaro Morata
For someone who has already scored 12 goals in all competitions this season, his inclusion might come as a bit of a shock to some. However, it is not just a random name that I had to pop in here and, as a result, used Alvaro Morata in the process.
Instead, it is because of the inconsistency with which he has played for the Blues that has put him here. In his first 8 games for the London outfit, he scored 7 goals and also created 2 assists. At that time, he was looking like one of the best strikers in the world.
In the next 23 games, however, he scored only 5 goals and created 2 assists. This isn’t really a great return from someone who cost Chelsea their club-record transaction. Antonio Conte’s over-reliance on him means that he isn’t really getting a breather that a long season requires.
As a result, he is suffering.
