When the BBC interviewed the ‘secret footballer’ last week, he was asked the question as to whether John Terry was popular within the football fraternity. Like with most loaded questions, the bullet was cleverly dodged, although you did sense by the pause and hesitancy that he perhaps wasn’t the most loved by his peers. To be honest I doubt JT really cares, or Chelsea fans for that matter as football is about winning matches, not a popularity contest. I’m sure Luis Suarez and Liverpool fans feel the same, but as neutral fans we are always looking to target those rival players that we have an inner hatred for.
Throughout the Premier League there have been plenty of players that have got our goat and this article is a celebration of those footballers we love to hate.
