Players Who Need To Improve Next Season

This season, we haven’t seen the best from these footballers, and we at the Fan Park believe that next season may crucial in their development as players. They’ll need to improve for their clubs, or could face the axe.

The Fan Park lists five players who we feel need to improve.

Jack Wilshere

Yes, some will argue that it’s his ongoing injury battle that has somewhat hindered his growth as a player, but when he has played this season, he’s looked far from the player that Gunners fans expected to see. Next season will be crucial for Arsenal’s golden-boy, and I’m interested to see what happens regarding his future at the club.

Angel Di Maria

The Argentine moved to Manchester United with a big reputation, but has failed to live up to his name. If the Red Devils hold onto the winger, he’ll need to work wonders in the Old Trafford club’s midfield in order to get back to his best.

Mario Gotze

There’s already talk involving a few German pundits, who are saying that the young German international is a shadow of his former self at Bayern Munich. Of course he is still young, and has years to work his way to the top, but Gotze will need to find the form he showed almost week in and week out at Dortmund, in order to play a pivotal role in Pep Guardiola’s plans.

Andres Iniesta

The Barcelona legend has gone over a year without an assist and a goal – which is incredible for a player who was always at the forefront of his side’s success. We want to see him getting in threatening positions, taking on players, and playing his hand in a goal again - or else I fear that he may lose his place in the Spanish giants’ team.

Mario Balotelli

The Italian forward has been almost a joke at times for Liverpool, as his antics on social media have gained more attention than his ability on the park. It’s almost as though nobody wants to give up on the 24-year-old, as from time-to-time he pops up with something special.

What other players do you feel need to improve next season?
