10 Sweatiest Players in World Football History

0 of 10

    The freedictionary defines sweat as: To excrete perspiration through the pores in the skin; perspire.

    You cannot run multiple kilometers or miles in a 90-minute match and expect anything less to happen to a player. There is no doubt that football and sweat go hand in hand.

    However, some players put the bead in sweat, and there is no questioning that their are few sports in which the players can pour the sweat like football.

    Both men and women professional players have their share of heavy perspires, and we take a look at them right here.

Cristiano Ronaldo

    Cristiano Ronaldo drips water like a sieve. However, it never messes up his hair.

Robbie Fowler

2 of 10

    You would be sweating too if you had earned those two trophies.

Richard Dunne

3 of 10

    Aston Villa and Ireland international Richard Dunne can usually be seen completely stuck to his kit. The Irishman sweats like it is going out of style.

Xavi

4 of 10

    According to Xavi Hernandez, who was quoted on newser.com, the Spanish midfielder blames his sweat problems on Nike's new kit they designed for the Catalans.

Jamie Carragher

5 of 10

    Liverpool vice-captain Jamie Carragher is always wearing an extra layer or two of sweat to prove his constant effort. Thanks for the years of dedication and sweat Carra.

Abby Wambach

6 of 10

    I honestly cannot think of a United States Women's National Team member that sweats more than forward Abby Wambach.

Gennaro Gattuso

7 of 10

    AC Milan hard man midfielder Gannaro Gattuso has one of the best endocrine systems in the world apparently.

Brede Hangeland

8 of 10

    Fulham defender Brede Hangeland looks like he joined a wet t-shirt contest.

Carlos Puyol

9 of 10

    Barcelona captain Carlos Puyol is always drenched. You can blame it on the Spanish humidity of Barcelona, but I don't think that has anything to do with it.

Walter Pandiani

10 of 10

    Espanyol forward Walter Pandiani proves to be a human sweat factory as there is not a dry spot left in his button-down by the end of this press conference following his club's 1-0 victory over Getafe on September 22nd, 2011.

    The real video of the press conference lasts nine minutes, but it's much easier to see how bad it is in fast forward.
