Everybody loves a good feud. And when a battle plays out in football, the whole world gets to know about it before you can say, "Carlos Tevez."

We start this list with Brazilian Alex, who has clearly upset somebody at Turkish club Fenerbahce.

Then there’s the dispute between Igor Denisov and the owners at Zenit St. Petersburg, who sent him down to the youth team after the midfielder complained about the club’s wage structure.

Before we finish, there are mentions for Teddy Sheringham’s silent feud with Andy Cole, and Zinedine Zidane’s infamous headbutt in the 2006 World Cup Final.

Watch as Bleacher Report Lead Writers Will Tidey and Mike Cummings run down some of world football’s most intense feuds, past and present.
