I suppose we think of Spain and Italy when looking for english successes so it’s easier to overlook other leagues. I guess Gazza and Butcher and Stevens were successes at Rangers, but that doesnt really count…
But for every success there are probably two Des Walkers and Jermain Pennants

How about Kevin Keegan at Hamburg? He even managed to win a Bundesliga title during his time there since he made the move from Liverpool. Hamburg has not won a domestic title since he left, curiously enough. He has always been considered as one of Hamburg’s best foreign signings.

And there’s Chris Waddle at Marseille. If I am not wrong in terms of what I once read, back in the late 90s, Marseille fans voted him to be the second-best player of all time at the club, only behind Jean-Pierre Papin.
