Almost Legend

Hosted ByUnwana

For every Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, there are soccer players who were equally or more talented but didn’t have the successful careers that those two enjoyed. In each episode of ‘Almost Legend’, Unwana takes us through the stories of various players in the history of soccer who seemed destined for the top but fell well short of expectations. Here’s a chance for fans to remember the players who had it all at the start but achieved little in the end.

Blessed with skill on both feet, Ricardo Quaresma started his career with a bigger reputation than fellow Portuguese wonderkid, Cristiano Ronaldo.

While Ronaldo went on to become one of the game’s greatest goalscorers, winning multiple Ballon D’ors along the way, Quaresma’s career failed to ignite as he crumbled at every chance to prove himself at the highest level, with failed moves to top clubs in Italy, Spain, and England.
