In one the Champions League matches against Real Madrid, Alves pretended that he had been severely fouled. The

Real Madrid

footballer was sent off, and Barcelona reached the next level. He destroys the reputation of Barcelona with these fake shows. Many football lovers considered him as one of the


hated football players in the world.

El Hadji Diouf

That is why he is known as one of the most hated football players in the history of football.


"Master of Black Arts" is the most appropriate title for Pepe. He deserves to be great because he has all the qualities needed to become a legendary defender. But his morals and behavior have prevented him from becoming a myth. Like


, and perhaps more so, he often shows ugly gestures that often lead to his dismissal. Only one of his ugly moves is to knock down the opponent's player and kick him. What a pity for this great player who has such behavior.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo should be considered one of the best of all-time in the history of football. He is the man of the year in football and is equal to "

Lionel Messi

" in terms of success statistics in this field. 

Ronaldo has not made any mistakes, except that he constantly dives himself to get penalties and has a strange tendency to indulge. Besides, he is so selfish, so the fan of Real Madrid didn't like this aspect of his personality.

There is no doubt that he is a great player, but the fact that he declares himself the greatest player of all-time in the history of football shows the selfish aspect of his personality, making him one of the most hated football players in the world.

Patrice Evra

Patric Evra played a major role in Manchester United and was the fifth-best Manchester United player in the club's history, but on the other hand, he is one of the hated football players in the world.

His ridiculous moves are worse than Alves. he deceives the referee far more, even in harmless confrontations. He should also be considered a master of black arts. Because he is very fond of dirty football, and this is why, like Pepe and Alves, despite his abilities, he is one of the most hated football players in the world.

Michel Platini

It should always be said about Platini that it is a pity for this great and genius player who sacrificed his reputation and honors of many years to get involved in the dirty game of FIFA embezzlement. A legend who could have been as popular as Pele and Cruyff. Due to his financial corruption and lobbying in favor of


hosting the 2022

World Cup

, he marked one of the dirtiest periods in the history of FIFA and UEFA alongside former FIFA President Sepp Blatter.

Today, there is no trace of him in football, and he is no longer respected. Now he is one of the most hated soccer players in the world.

Luis Suarez

The Uruguayan player, who is now the striker of Barcelona, ​​can be considered one of the most hated players in football. His most famous most disgusting football behavior is biting his opponents.

team and bit Giorgio Chiellini in the 2014 World Cup against



The other his ugliest football moves were deliberately catching the ball with his hand on the goal line in the 2010 quarter-final match against the


national team.He took a penalty so that his team would not lose, and of course, he was sent off. But that penalty was not scored, and Ghana failed to reach the next level.

This was one of the dirtiest and most reprehensible moves in the history of football. His most reprehensible football behavior is his racism.

John Terry

In 2009, in exchange for a bribe, he allowed people to visit the


training ground. It seems that this has not been enough because he had fights with bouncers, an affair with the ex-girlfriend of his teammate, and racially abused Antoine Ferdinand, which cost him the England armband. He was acquitted because the charge was not fully substantiated.

However, if it was proven to the Football Federation that the insult had taken place, John Terry would be sentenced to a four-month ban from football. He was dismissed from the England national team a few months later.

Terry has become one of the most hated footballers in the history of the football world because of his immorality.

Joey Barton

Joey Barton, without a doubt, is the most hated player in football in the world. No one is as hated as he among football fans. In their view, he is a saboteur and behaves like a criminal on the pitch.

His bad temper in the pitch has caused him received several red cards. Many times Barton has committed extremely violent tackles that injured opponent players. However, this didn’t seem to matter, and he continued to commit infractions against his rivals.
