Who’s the most likeable player in the Premier League?
Despite the negativity that often surrounds footballers, a fair few of them seem like thoroughly hard working, dedicated, dignified and likeable people.
Each club will hold their favourite players close, the likes of Giggs and Scholes at United, Gerrard and Carragher at Liverpool and Frank Lampard at Chelsea. All men who have displayed loyalty and tremendous service to their employers and the club’s supporters.
But there are those plying their trade at perhaps smaller clubs that are liked by near enough all supporters.
Veteran players the likes of Brad Friedel and Shay Given demand respect for the amount of time they have played in the league, without fuss and with quality.
While the likes of Peter Crouch at Stoke City are the subject of fans affections for their approachability off the field and the ability to laugh at themselves on it.
