15. Carlos Marchena
The Guardian's Sid Lowe described him in a 2009 column as "the dirtiest, cheatingiest, evilest player in La Liga." Former Valencia, Villarreal and Spain defender Carlos Marchena, ladies and gentleman, what more do you need to know?
14. Jose Emilio Santamaria
Hidden beneath great beauty is often a beast doing the dirty work. In the case of the Alfredo Di Stefano led Real Madrid of the '50s and '60s, that work was done by Jose Emilio Santamaria. The Uruguayan developed a reputation for being quite the kicker.
13. Michel Salgado
Steve McManaman once described his Real Madrid colleague Michel Salgado as "a complete psychopath, even in training," so it is little surprise to see Los Blancos' former right-back in this list. He's another style of full-back sadly missing from the modern game.
12. Juan Carlos Arteche
Remembered in Spain for his impressive moustache and his fierce scowl, Juan Carlos Arteche was a popular figure at Atletico Madrid. Impressive in the air and boasting a strong physique, after over 300 appearances for Los Rojiblancos he retired at 32.
11. Javi Navarro
At the beginning of the 21st century there were few strikers who would have fancied their chances in a fight with Javi Navarro and his defensive partner Pablo Alfaro at Sevilla. He's unfortunately best remembered for a tackle (bordering assault) on Mallorca's Juan Arango.
