Real Murcia are a different team, a Segunda Division side, the one Drenthe is at is Racing.

Nothing wrong with this considering their salaries probably weren’t as lucrative as today’s salaries and the fact that it’s more down to working to be able to retire with some extra money.

In terms of the cover photo for this video, I love the irony of how the sponsor over the shoulder of the player is only a misspelling of what he’s probably thinking as he signs for that club.

People usually say it's better to retire on a high but I see no problem with former stars playing for low league teams. They still love the game and just accept they can longer perform at a certain level but still want to have fun playing the game they like. Nothing but respect for that.

I can tell you why you are not getting people come back for part two of videos. Your intonation when you speak is rather irritating. Content is OK but i personally didn't like the way you narrated the video.

I mean, if it happened during what should be “prime” years then it’s definitely a tragedy, but if it’s just down to aging/injury then I respect it a lot. Means they just love to play. That being said, I don’t think there is as much between a average player in the top leagues and some of the lower leagues as people might think. A slight drop off can be the difference between top level player and an low level pro/amateur. Some players rely on pace and one injury can take that away. Plus I think a lot of these guys get rich and lose their passion for the game and don’t train as seriously

Maicon was signed by my local team (Avaí) around 2018 or something, I don't think he ever played any game in either state championship (in Brazil we got those) or Brazilian 2nd Division, which was a shame, i'd love to see him play in Avaí's shirt.

Funny story: Romário, 1994 Ballon D'or winner, played until the age of 41; though he did play for the likes of Adelaide FC in his final years, he also had one last great season in 2005, at the age of 39, for Fluminense, and then retired with a short, but worthy run for Vasco in 2007. Which is a lot better than a lot of players in this list, surely - Maicon especially. I wasn't even aware he was still playing O.o

The fenerbahçe team that guiza joined was the best side club ever had, quarter finalist in the champions league. He missed many absolute sitters, and actually cried after scoring against a very low tier anatolian club in the turkish cup. Now of cource he was mocked relentlessly but there were two issues most people miss. Alex, the shadow striker and playmaker was the goal scorer of that side and nearly every single striker he played with had the same goal drought, because team was shaped as such. Alex got most assists in two seasons but those assists were for inside forwards such as deivid and center backs on set pieces. Other problem for guiza was apperantly his relationship with his wife was very poor and violent, probably his self worth and trust all time low. He cried hugging the goal post. Very bizarre.

You missed out the time Bendtner had at Sunderland. What a genuinely frustrating player. He could have been world-class if he could have been bothered enough to be.

Drente shot him self in the foot and head at the same time,. In the under 23 and olympic team he acted like he was the big man , went up against the national team manager of the youth teams and disrespected him after he gave him some advice on how not to behave on and off the pitch as any mentor does.started to argeu with the manager as he was heading to real madrid , The manager told him he would not have any thing to do with him any more and bey bey international carreer and football carreer in general. Seedorf acted the same way van gaal didnt want to have anything to do with him and kluivert any more . due to their antics on and of the field Group rape of a girl , killing some one during speeding over 100km hr to a residential area. And one of the main reasons seedorf is hated is his arogance and disrespect during the 1996 european cup. claiming penaltys and missing them .

I wonder, how many of these types of players have ghosts of the past from selling out too young or after a freak season for the big bucks contract which didn't work out for whatever reason, and ultimately ruined their name and/or appetite for the game, and hang on like this for some sort of penance.

Tom Soares. Went from Crystal Palace to the Yeovil & District Premier League. Which for those who don't know is basically Tier 14 pub football. Although this isn't because he got bad, it is because that guy loves the game so much he just keeps playing for whoever his local team is. Fair play to him.

A rather interesting story about Güiza; during his time in Turkey, he once got in a fight in a night club. He was partying with some girls and he asked for a cigarette from a random guy. The guy was a Fenerbahçe fan and he snapped at him and if I remember correctly, beat him up pretty bad.

Clicked on this one thanks to algorithm and out of curiosity. Haven't followed football in a long time and was amused at how I knew practically *none* of these players, but it did make me think of a video you could do: 7 well-known players from the 90s who are still playing today! Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the top one I can think of.

Off the top of my head... Gianluigi Buffon is a definite. I’m pretty sure Maxi Rodriguez, Fabio Quagliarella, Joaquín, Claudio Pizarro & Roque Santa Cruz are all still playing, otherwise they’ve very recently retired. Jamie Cureton is still playing, although I think he’s now player-manager in the non leagues & I read something the other week about Kenny Miller still playing. Not sure if Franck Ribéry or Giorgio Chiellini started their careers in ‘99 or 2000, but they’d be close.

Drenthe was never a star, so he's not exactly one for this list. Being under contract at a big club doesn't make a player a star. He was a great talent at Feyenoord, but got crazy, thought he was an arrived star and signed for Madrid, still being a youngster. He could have been a star, if only he had stayed at Feyenoord for some two years longer, learning and riping and keeping his head straight.

Great video suggestion, well-researched video--lovely content, HITC Sevens. But, if I honestly might offer constructive criticism: there are many times I simply don't finish watching your videos because you don't finish enunciating your sentences. You frequently drop the volume and tone on your final words, and that sentence cadence causes enough frustration to make me click away. I do only mean to speak this constructively.
