Top 15 Crybabies in World Football

Football is an emotional sport. Players strain themselves to the brink of exhaustion while battling for supremacy, and when circumstances do not smile in their favor, these emotions can overwhelm even the most headstrong individuals. When these athletes breakdown emotionally, it can occur on the biggest stages in world football, but others have opened the waterworks in matches that hold particular importance. While the circumstances may vary, the results have been some of the most memorable moments of a player’s career.

These moments of vulnerability show that our favorite players are humans that feel the pressure of the extraordinary lives they lead. However, some of these players have displayed this proclivity on a regular basis and earned the reputation of being a crybaby. This is a reputation that may come at the expense of their egos, but it is a label that has been placed on some of the greatest players of all-time. It is not a permanent stain on their egos, but rather something that comes along with the demands of greatness.

In most of the big moments that take place in matches, you can look to these players to perform. However, when things do not go their way, they have shown that they are willing to shed more than a few tears. These men have suffered the agony of defeat, but many have also experienced victory on the other side of the coin. So, the next time life is giving you a little too much to handle and you feel like you’re in need of a good cry, take a page from the book of these football legends. They aren’t afraid to cry. So you shouldn’t be either.

While there may only be a few more decorated and celebrated players in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo has shown his soft side more than any of them. Throughout his career, Ronaldo has been spotted crying at the World Cup, European Cup, and most recently at the Ballon D’or Award ceremony, where he was declared the greatest footballer in the world. Ronaldo has a habit of letting himself go during these moments, but they are part of what make him the supremely talented, petulant, undeniably great footballer that he is.
