I’ll start with two obvious ones;
Totti and Shearer.
Two immense players who basically won fuck all. Totti has the World Cup but aside from that he won 3 major domestic honours in 25 years. The Serie A under Capello’s Roma and a couple of Coppa Italia wins in what I imagine was the Spalletti days.
Shearer is arguably one of the best strikers of his generation but you can only point to his PL title win with Blackburn as being his major career success.
