Ten Dark Horses from the Bundesliga

Benjamin RogersAnalyst ISeptember 3, 2008

After writing the past two "Dark Horse" articles and having good success, I've decided to write a third of the series.

This Dark Horse article will be about the top league in Germany, the Bundesliga.

After reading through the comments from the last two articles, I have found many people have a different view of the term Dark Horse, so I will put out what it covers for me so the readers can understand my choices:

1. Dark Horse can mean a player who is starved of media attention.

2. Dark Horse can mean a player who has great skill, yet is underrated.

3. Dark Horse can mean a player who plays for a small club yet should be playing for a better one, or a team which is higher in the league.

4. Dark Horse can mean a player who hasn't been discovered yet.

Remember just because a player has one of these points doesn't mean he has them all.

I hope I cleared that up.
