World Football's 5 Worst Liars
It's so hard to find an honest person in the world of football today. There's lying everywhere you look.
But it shouldn't be confused with outright controversy or just plain diving. Lying is just downright toying with players, fans and teams' emotions.
From the players who profess their love to a club one day and leave for more money the next.
The managers who just never stop ranting or make foolish accusations to overshadow their poor decisions.
Let's take a look at five of those liars here.
5. Wayne Rooney

You're a blue for life Wayne Rooney? Until Manchester United comes calling of course.
Manchester United isn't ambitious enough for you? Until they give in to your contract demands of course.
At least no one is fooled by Rooney's lies.
Other footballers could have filled this spot obviously. Recently, Fernando Torres said he was dedicated to Liverpool and signed for Chelsea weeks later, but he was not even close to the first one.
But Rooney saying Manchester United wasn't ambitious enough? That's just ridiculous.
4. Carlos Tevez

Carlos Tevez is never happy for long is he?
He jumped ship from West Ham, who paid dearly for signing him. Then Manchester United was his home and the best club in the world.
Then they weren't. Then they weren't respecting him enough (like the previous slide, you are the one who needs to respect Manchester United, not the other way around).
So he claimed his love for neighbors Manchester City.
But now, just two years later, City isn't good enough. At first it seemed like family reasons were why Tevez wanted to leave City, and I felt for him.
But City is willing to work with him, and he just won't cooperate.
Maybe Tevez just likes to stir things up every couple years.
3. Harry Redknapp

Hear me out here.
Harry Redknapp said Robbie Keane was one of the best footballers in the world when he brought him back to Tottenham after a horrid three months at Liverpool.
Then, he benches Keane and sends him away as quick as possible.
Redknapp does this with all his players. Says they're incredible and irreplaceable, and then he replaces them.
Gareth Bale better hope he doesn't see a dip in form.
'Arry is a great manager, but this gets a bit tiring.
So is it tactical? Or must he just give a long, drawn-out answer for every single question?
2. Rafa Benitez

Rafa Benitez is a great tactician, but when the tactics don't work, he's full of excuses why.
And none of them are all that viable.
Then there was his rant about Sir Alex Ferguson bullying officials. We all knew that, and we didn't need his list of explanations, many of which were stretched.
Rafa's done a bit too much talking in his managing career, and it hasn't helped him.
1. Sepp Blatter

Ugh. Sepp Blatter. Just hearing his name makes me a little sick.
He's always promising to make football better and fairer, but he refuses to acknowledge what needs fixing.
He never recognizes his officials' egregious errors, and the World Cup last summer was full of them; and he'll say anything to get re-elected, which he now has been.
Just can't stand hearing the man talk because you know whatever you hear, it's complete crap.
So, who makes your list?
