LA LIGA’S biggest flops of the season have been revealed with former Arsenal failure Denis Suarez and Barcelona star Antoine Griezmann included.
Spanish outlet Marca compiled their Worst XI from this season’s league campaign.
Former Arsenal flop Denis Suarez is still struggling
And there were plenty of big-hitters in the squad made up of Spain’s most underwhelming stars.
Runners-up Barcelona have two players in the line-up along with relegated city neighbours Espanyol.
Valencia also contribute two stars, while even champions Real Madrid have one representative.
Former Atleti hero Griezmann has failed to impress since moving to the Nou Camp and he is joined in the side by former Gunners loanee Suarez.
Suarez, now at Celta Vigo, spent an entirely forgetful six months in North London after being brought to the club by former boss Unai Emery in January 2019.

He managed just TWO Premier League appearances before later claiming he was not even 50 per cent fit when he arrived at the Emirates.
The nightmare has continued for Suarez, 26, despite swapping Barca for Celta and he managed just one La Liga goal in 26 appearances.
Griezmann made a £108million move to link up with Lionel Messi and Co but it has not gone to plan.
The French World Cup winner hit just nine goals in 35 appearances and was plagued by rumours of a rift with his Argentine skipper as Barca failed to retain their crown.
Ironically, Griezmann’s replacement at Atleti, Joao Felix, joins him in the side after failing to live up to his big billing in the capital.
Felix arrived as the fifth most expensive player ever in a huge £113million deal but the Portuguese star, 20, managed just six goals and one assist in 27 games.
Leading the line is Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic, 22, who has scored just two goals in 17 appearances after costing £55m from Frankfurt last summer.
Hampered by fitness and form, Jovic is already linked with a move away and Chelsea are interested.
The team’s goalkeeper is Jasper Cillessen of Valencia, the former Barca man has had a tough campaign between the sticks, conceding 30 goals in 24 games and registering just five clean sheets.
