10) John Carew
Carew is probably one of the most successful players in our long list of players who went bankrupt in their lives. Carew played for some of Europe’s top clubs in Valencia, Lyon and Roma. He won the La Liga title at the Mestalla and was the part of the side that ended up on the losing side in the Champions League final of 2001. The forward scored more than ninety goals in his career. He went bankrupt during his time at West Ham United. Post retirement, Carew tried his hand in acting and has even starred in two films.
