However, due to his bad reputations, Bellamy never afforded to repeat performance on the pitch.
4. Ashley Young – Winger
Manchester United star Ashley Young has been an outstanding player since he moved to Old Trafford in 2011 from Aston Villa.
He was also very dangerous at Villa Park, the reason why legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson landed brought him to United.
During his time with the Villans, the England international enjoyed his best days by far and won the PFA award. It was in the 2008-09 season which was his third year with the club since he joined from Watford.
However, Young who will turn 33 in July, never won it again, although he is still playing nice football.
3. Jermaine Jenas – Midfielder
Jenas was a good box-to-box midfielder for a time and he had the ability to become a consistent player.
