5 Legendary Football Players Who Never Won a Major Title (part 2)

The title is a reward for what a team can do in a season. For this reason, the players are always trying their best to get as many trophies as possible, which is practical for them to be mentioned in history. Often the greatest names will wear the strongest teams and conquer titles together. However, there are exceptions. There are legends because of loyalty that have accepted to play in unknown clubs or they are not lucky.

  1. Johnny Haynes

Johnny Haynes is considered to be the best player in Fulham history. Just before the entrance to Craven Cottage, there is a statue to commemorate the person who has worked for nearly two decades for the London club. Haynes also left a mark on the international arena.

At the 1966 World Cup when England won the championship, Haynes would have been present if not for a serious injury hindering. In 1962, Haynes broke his leg, lost all year of treatment and gradually declined. Haynes finished his career with 657 matches, scoring 157 goals for Craven Cottage. But he did not have the honor of winning major titles with Fulham, even with them relegated to 2nd and 3rd place in 1968 and 1969.

  1. Giuseppe Signori

Giuseppe Signori is a very comprehensive striker. The man born in 1968 is agile, technical and has a good finishing. He is also versatile when he can kick, brush, and kick guard. Signori can attract any audience to watch the match alone. The golden age of the former striker was when he wore Lazio from 1992 to 1997, where he scored 107 goals in just 152 matches. But at that time Lazio could not win any major and small titles.

  1. Tom Finney

Sir Tom Finney is arguably the most outstanding player of his time. The man born in 1922 is still considered one of the greatest men of English football. With the exception of a single game played for Northern Ireland’s Distillery in the final season, Finney’s career is tied to Preston North End. In it, he and they went down to play two seasons in the second division, not going anywhere else.
