The Premier League has been graced by some fantastic Brazilian footballers over the years – but who is the greatest of them all?
During the off-season we’re giving you the chance to vote for the best player from certain nations to appear in the Premier League since its inception in 1992.
And to kick things off we’re starting with Brazil, the country which put the ‘beautiful’ in ‘the beautiful game’.
Middlesbrough were famously one of the earliest beneficiaries of Brazilian players in England, with their cosmopolitan squad of 1996-97 containing the likes of Juninho, Emerson and Branco.
Boro were ultimately relegated at the end of that season, but they had became every supporter’s second-favourite team and left fans desperate to see more samba stars in England.
In more recent yeas Brazilian players have tended to join the bigger teams, and Daniel Storey has shortlisted the best to have graced the Premier League. Now all you have to do is vote for your favourite.
