Most Overrated Footballers

The Top Ten

1 David Beckham David Beckham David Robert Joseph Beckham is an English retired professional footballer. He played for Manchester United, Preston North End, Real Madrid, Milan, LA Galaxy, Paris Saint-Germain and the England national team, for which he held the appearance record for an outfield player until 2016.

Beckham is the most overrated athlete of all time period. Only people who know nothing about football think he was a great player.

Most overrated athlete of any sport of all times.
I know him from the beginning of his career. He was never even the best player of any of teams played (Manchester United, Real Madrid, England's National team).
He's not included in any top 25-50 of football experts (magazines, web sites) but he's famous...
As the football experts know, not even a Ballon d'Or in his hands (awarded to the best European football player every year-nowdays in the world).
C.Ronaldo has 5, Cruyff, Platini and Van Basten 3 etc.

Most styliest yes but one of the best ever hell no.
