Ranking World Football's 20 Biggest Prima Donnas: Ronaldo, Tevez or Zlatan?
Marco Vasini/Associated Press

Sport at the highest level seems to attract its fair share of prima donnas, and football is no exception.

Here is the definition of just what a prima donna is, according to Dictionary.com:

1. a first or principal female singer of an opera company.
2. a temperamental person; a person who takes adulation and privileged treatment as a right and reacts with petulance to criticism or inconvenience.

It is that second meaning that we are obviously focusing on here and reading it has probably made readers immediately think of one or more high-profile footballers.

Here we count down a list of the 20 most petulant and temperamental footballers, the ones with a sense of entitlement as large as their giant wage packages.

Let us know in the comments if you can think of more.
