In any sport, injuries remain the biggest threat to star athletes and the big contracts they receive. After Everton paid a hefty £5 million transfer fee to acquire Per Kroldrup from Udinese, the skilled Danish defender suffered a groin injury that required surgery. Kroldrup ended up only making one appearance in his year spent with the club. Grand opening, grand closing. *Hova voice*
