Arguably The Top TEN acts of transfer betrayal within Football

Fernando Torres’ move to Chelsea caused much annimosity at Anfield, as the Spaniard went from being a club hero to a villain in the flash of an eye.

Glancing through player transfers over the last fifteen years, it is clear that Torres is not the first to endure the wrath of a particular set of fans after claiming love for his club, however, this season has seen a particular rise in players risking the wrath of their supporters by asking for high profile transfers to clubs with bigger ambitions or simply to sides providing a higher wage packet.

Ambition is not a bad thing in football, but some of the players on this list may have wished they hadn’t chosen their local rivals as a destination on leaving their previous employers.

Honourable, or rather dis-honourable mentions must go out to Gareth Barry, Nick Barmby, Javier Mascherano and Darren Bent, but each member of this top 10 have found a way to rub their club’s supporters up the wrong way.
