Leeds flop named among worst strikers in PL history by Daily Mail
By Danny Wright
Leeds United flop Tomas Brolin has been named as the 14th worst striker in the history of the Premier League.
The Daily Mail ranked the worst of the worst that the English top-flight has had to offer since 1992, and Brolin is towards the top after a horrific spell at Elland Road between 1995 and 1997.
Luckily for Leeds, the ex-Sweden international is the only one of their former players to make the list, which is largely dominated by players from Newcastle United and West Ham.
Howard Wilkinson signed Brolin from Italian side Parma in 1995 as he looked for someone to partner the iconic Toby Yeboah in attack – but things didn’t exactly work out for the Swedish forward.
Few could have foreseen Brolin’s nightmare spell in Yorkshire in fairness, as he arrived there with winners medals from the UEFA Cup, Cup Winners’ Cup and the UEFA Super Cup from his days at Parma, as well as a third place medal from the 1994 World Cup with Sweden.

However none of that success would be repeated with Leeds as he scored just four goals in 19 appearances before he was eventually shipped out on loan spells to Zurich and back to Parma.
Eventually, Brolin left the Whites for good in 1998 when he signed for Crystal Palace, where he would go on to score exactly zero goals in 13 games.
