Mitroglou Amongst Top 10 Worst EPL Strikers
Kostas Mitroglou’s career has gone from strength to strength over the last few seasons. The Greek international earned a big money move to French giants Marseille this past summer after spending two very productive seasons at Benfica.
However, for all his success in Portugal and Greece previously, Mitroglou did endure a rather difficult time in the English Premier League. The Daily Mail recently came out with their picks for the Top 100 Worst Strikers in Premier League history and Mitroglou is ranked 7th on the list.
The blurb about the 29-year-old was as follows:
Fulham were desperately battling relegation and in January 2014 they agreed a £12m fee with Olympiakos for the Greek striker.
He may have been the record fee holder but he appeared only three times due to a variety of injury, fitness and form issues.
In August he returned to Olympiakos on loan and was promptly back to scoring in the Champions League, with a winner against Atletico Madrid no less.
Mitroglou certainly wasn’t a hit during his stint with Fulham, however injuries played a major role in that. Luckily for the player, that experience has not defined him and he has gone to win titles and score goals after his move to Craven Cottage. The undisputed starting striker for Greece, Mitroglou has recently recovered from injury and will be eager to prove his worth once again, this time in France for Marseille.
