The term “journeyman” is used in football to describe a football player who has played for a number of clubs during his career. He is that sort of a footballer who can never play for a club for too long and for one reason or the other has to shift clubs with considerable frequency.
One of the most (in)famous footballing journeyman is Lutz Pfannenstiel. The German goalkeeper has played for nineteen clubs spread over six continents.
Some other notable examples of footballing journeyman are Christian Vieri, Abel Xavier and Andrew Cole.
