5. Benedict Vilakazi
A player who had the world of expectation thrust upon his shoulders, fell by the wayside with his controversial lifestyle. His professional career was rocked by sex scandals with juveniles including being dragged to court on allegation of statutory rape, which in turn prohibited his move to Swedish side Djurgården.
He then moved from club to club but disciplinary issues followed him everywhere and he was landed up quitting the game at the age of 30.
