10. Thiago Alcantara
How far could Thiago have progressed in his career if he hadn’t been hampered by injuries? Surely he could have been one of the elite midfielders on the European scene, but injuries have denied him the chance to become that key player for both club and country.
He has suffered from 21 total injuries since joining Bayern Munich.
If Thiago is a player prone to injury, his brother Rafinha suffers the same misfortune. The Barcelona midfielder has fared far worse than his brother, in fact.
Although his injuries are not as frequent, they have often been much more serious. Rafinha has suffered three major knee injuries – two cruciate ligament tears, one of them which he is currently recovering from, and a meniscus injury.
