Let’s just say that we at the Fan Park don’t believe that these players are well-liked by the majority of players and fans around the world. It may be because they’re considered dirty and deceiving, or it just may be because they play for your favourite football club’s rival team and you love seeing them fail – like Glen Johnson does ever so well...
This light-hearted list showcases the strongest team we could field, with the most unpopular players in a 4-4-2 formation:
Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet (Liverpool)
Left-Back: Ashley Cole (AS Roma)
Left Centre-Back: Pepe (Real Madrid)
Right Centre-Back: Marco Materazzi (Retired)
Right-Back: Glen Johnson (Liverpool)
