Ranking the most overrated footballers in the world is always going to cause controversy.
Here, though, we attempt to pick out 25 players who, for various reasons, can be considered overrated.
It should be stated clearly that just because someone appears on this list does not mean they are not a fine footballer.
All of the names here, in fact, are quality players. Some are among the best in the business.
But each footballer here is overrated in some sense.
Perhaps they have been the subject of a massive transfer fee (or multiple transfers) that has overinflated their value. Maybe one set of fans idolizes a player a little more than is warranted when considering his contributions on the pitch.
Likewise, the media can sometimes garnish far more attention on certain players than their actual achievements warrant.
Enjoy the list, and let us know in the comments section if you agree or disagree.
