You won’t find a more famous fairytale than Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs but I doubt any of you have heard the one about the Barclays Premier League and its seven pint sized wonders. Well that was going to be my title until I thought about being sued by seven rich angry midgets.
We all know professional sport tends to be full of taller stronger athletes, especially here in Britain where it is difficult for smaller boys to make it at the highest level of football as the winning at all costs mentality sees smaller kids replaced by bigger, stronger lads long before they mature.
And I doubt many countries are any different.
Therefore, these seven vertically challenged (can I say that?) superstars have probably had to work harder than most to make it but are an example to all of us that size does not always matter. I do believe these are the league’s smallest players but I may have missed somebody out as after all, they don’t exactly stand out in a crowd.
But with all the size jokes used up there is only one last thing to say; the EPL’s seven shortest players who are certainly not short of talent.
