Top 20 Worst Soccer Players Ever

Soccer is not just the world’s most famous sport but is probably also the world’s most severely scrutinized and analyzed sport too. With millions of eyes on professional players week-in, week-out, even the smallest and negligible details appear magnified in today’s world of television and internet. With cut-throat competition between the teams and the players, the margin for error is so minute that the manager or the players get crucified for their every slip-up.

The world of soccer at present is blessed with some of the best talent on this planet showcasing their abilities at the grandest levels and it is one of the best times to be alive as a soccer fan considering the amount of entertainment that comes along with these superstars. But every good thing has a flip side and just like the most incredibly talented and athletic players, there have also been those which just seemed to be out of place.

There could be thousands of bad soccer players out there but we will try and scoop out just the famous top 20 worst soccer players among them considering the negative fame that they received thanks to their abilities or the lack of it. Obviously this list is very subjective but we made sure that the names included in the list were debatable if not hundred percent certain that they deserve to be in this list.

Undoubtedly, one of the best stories in history of the game, Ali Dia deserves to be at the top spot in this list for all the right reasons. Ali Dia’s friend called up then Southampton manager Graeme Souness and convinced him that it was legendary striker George Weah on the other end and that Ali Dia was in fact his cousin who played for French side Paris Saint Germain and also had 13 International appearances for his country Senegal. It took them a whole of 52 minutes to convince the manager and he was given a one-month contract.

Ali Dia made his debut as a substitute, replacing Matt le Tissier and then 32 minutes later was substituted off in the 85th minute and that was all the playing he did for Southampton. Yes, he was that bad.
