Best German Players In The EPL
English Premier League's Best Imports From Deutschland
Past & Present
A controversial figure in recent times. He is still contracted to Arsenal he may be set to leave veery soon with Fenebache rumoured to be interested for a January swoop.
Singing for Manchester City in 2016 from Shalke 05 for a fee of nearly £40 million, Sané has enjoyed great success in his time at City so far, winning two EPL Titles, Two EFL Cups, and one FA Cup which came in the famous treble winning season of 2018/19.
Arguably the most effective German footballer to ever play in the Premier League is Michael Ballack. As well as if he was not the very best, it’s arguable that among all Germans to ever play in England, Ballack invested his finest years on the island.
After enjoying a remarkable job with Kaiserslautern, Leverkusen as well as Bayern, Ballack relocated to Chelsea in 2006. The midfielder won three FA Cups, the FA Community Shield, the League Cup as well as the Premier League throughout his time in England, and he was an absolutely important part of the club’s midfield.
Now retired, Ballack is among the top goalscorers in the history of the German National team. He came to the English Premier League in 2006 and enjoyed a 4 year stay at Chelsea winning all three of the major domestic trophies in different seasons.
His profession may not have actually finished in a blaze of glory, yet the 36-year-old did make 98 caps for Germany as well as is worthy of significant respect for being just one of the most effective players to never ever win a major worldwide trophy for club or country.
For the position of goalkeeper in the list of all time Germans to play in the premier League, there was no affordable alternative to the notoriously hot-headed Jens Lehmann.
The Essen indigenous used both sides of the Ruhr derby and also for Milan before joining Arsenal in 2003. In London, the shot-stopper spent 5 periods before going back to Stuttgart for the final stages of his playing days. And although he retired in 2010, the following springtime he was re-signed for an injury crisis-stricken Arsenal.
Lehmann was red carded greater than any goalkeeper in Bundesliga history (he was likewise red carded in the 2006 Champions League v Barcelona), but he was a wonderful keeper at his peak.
Watching Robert Huth play, one might easily mistake him for an English center-back. The 28-year-old has actually layered his profession in the Premier League because he joined Chelsea from Union Berlin in 2001, as well as he has developed himself well in the EPL.
Probably partially because of his seclusion from the German game and also growth within Premier League culture, Huth wasn’t any part of Joachim Low’s DFB team since 2009.
Huth has actually shown his credentials with over 200 appearances in the EPL. He is probably among the most underrated centre backs to have played in the league.
