Debenag 2d

These player were hated in their various clubs because of bad attitudes exhibited by them on the field of play even their fans could not argue.

10. Ronaldo

Fans hated Ronaldo when he was playing in the English premiership. Even though Ronaldo was born with incredible talent, he wasted it by acting like a child on the pitch. Ronaldo had this knack for falling all over the pitch though it actually receded but he was always arguing calls and bickered with opposing players and even coaches.

9. Emmanuel Adebayor

Emmanuel Adebayor was never a fan favorite in his own team, and he made sure other fans dislike him even more. Like when he scored against Arsenal for Manchester City in 2009 and ran across the pitch to celebrate in front of the visiting Arsenal fans.

8.Michael Ballack

Michael Ballack never got penalized for the ridiculous things he did. He did a great job of getting the referees to call cheap free kicks on the other teams and to ignore them when he committed them. A lot of fans weren't sad to see that Ballack was unable to play in the 2010 World Cup and that Germany got to the semifinals without him.

7. Marcelo

Marcelo feigned injuries or dives to get calls or to get players sent off but if a player from another team did so, he was always the first to confront him and told referees it's all a ploy.

6. Pepe

Pepe had a reputation for being a very tough tackler and football fans hated him for that.

5. Sergio Busquets

It was beyond ridiculous the antics Sergio Busquets pulled on the pitch game in and game out. The worst part was that his antics usually worked.

4. John Terry

John Terry was easily the most hated footballer in the world, but learned to behave himself. He stopped sleeping with teammates' girlfriends, drunkenly mocking grieving American tourists a day after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, calling out his national team manager to the press or trying to stage a coup and for the most part, he stopped yelling at opposing players or officials every chance he got.

All these actually made people hated him. He knew how to create scandals that would spend months on the front pages better than anyone.

3. Torres

Torres was even a player other fans couldn't help but admire. But his £50 million transfer from Liverpool to Chelsea changed everything for the player who was once considered one of the greatest strikers in the world. He went from a darling to a Judas on Merseyside. He was roundly booed and mocked at away grounds in the Premier League, and the fact that he took what felt like a year to score his first Chelsea goal did not help one bit. Add on the fact that Liverpool was flying and he was looking like he had forgotten how to play football all together.

2. Wayne Rooney

Wayne Rooney was awful except for his football skills. He's got one of the worst tempers in the Premier League and he obviously did not know anything about PR.

1. Mario Balotelli

Mario was the most hated player in world football. He was arrogant, selfish, foolish and not a team player He got into fights on the training ground and the pitch and he commits the silliest of fouls. He was always rebuked from officials who where quick to book.
