Top Ten Most Overrated Football (Soccer) Players of All-Time
The Top Ten
Is Falcao really should be on top of this list? Benzema is much worst
Worthless of a player
Cristiano Ronaldo is not overrated,best player now
He is the most overrated because he is compared to Messi, 9 years they played in the same league
Messi finished above him 7 times over the 9 years I would say he played in a better squad.
Messi won La Liga player of the year 8 times compared to his 1
if Messi missed his next 503 shots he would still have a better conversation rate
Messi is better @ passing the ball, running with the ball, better vision. better @ free kicks etc
if you take penalties out of their goal totals they have the same amount of career goals, however Messi has played 150 games less 3 season.
Messi already has more assists having played 150 less games.
Lol he is ranked 3 now he used to be 4 now 3 while messi is the best only people who team got whooped by him hate haters gonna hate messi don't care!
He is the worst
He is a lot better than messi, got a national trophy for a trash team, brought his club to the top and donates a lot of money
People talk about balotelli as if he's a world class striker, when he isn't near the same level of world class strikers such as messi, aguero, Suarez, Ronaldo, ibrahimovic, cavani, henry, lewandowski, van nistelrooy, etc
A player so much potential but totally wasted.Bad attitude,no discipline and awful temperament.
Messi is only great because he have only played besides great footallers
People say he is the best player in the world but he can't win anything with his country who have talented players, whereas ronaldo has won the Euro cup in a terrible team. He got caught taking drugs so he could get taller and the FFA? did nothing whatsoever to punish him. - BigBoyBlakey
To that idiot that said messi is underrated, he is currently the second highest rated player for soccer, gets paid 40 million euros, and is a fraud, doesn't help his team, but insults it, cries, and not to mention always flops. Ronaldo scores more goals this year, got a national trophy for a terrible team (portugal) and brought real madrid on the top of la liga
He's the best player alive and that is not overrating him Ronaldo is way worse
He is so good, one bad season, off the team, onto some junky Portuguese team and called worst ever, and then there is messi, still a legend for his mess ups
Iker Casillas is nowhere near as good as Neuer, Ter Stegen, De Gea and he just isn't as good as everyone says he is
He has done nothing at man utd, overpriced overhyped and overrated.
Just keeps up to all the trends, is really crap on the pitch
Since he moved to United, he's stopped playing like he used to. However many people still think he's the best CM in the world. It's not that he's bad, he's still a good player but overrated
All sizzle, no steak.
And the Oscar goes to... Tommy Wiseau!
Neymar Jr. isn't even a good actor, let alone, a decent player.
No work ethic whatsoever, gets paid money to freestyle on the pitch. why don't just get the F2 freestylers instead of him as they would actually work hard? - BigBoyBlakey
Plays like a child, talks like a child, behaves like a child. Not a man, not a professional soccer player. Always lucky to be surrounded by excellent players who win trophies for him.
An amazing actor. Wonder why hasn't he won an Oscar yet?
Can't get on the field for f-ing west ham
Well this list sucks. Top scorer in national Mexican team. Top scorer in Man U and really good season in Real Madrid. I mean he's not Messi or Ronaldo. But he is a hell of a player in the area. Oh and he is top scorer in Bayern Leverkusen. Mexican players usually aren't that great you know. And I'm not intending to offend anyone. But it's true..
He's the poor man's version of Paul Scholes, has no work ethic. Stoke had let to let him score just so that he wouldn't cry as much in his final game. He slipped when it mattered the most and lost the title because he sucks. He spent more time procrastinating rather than actually doing work. he only stayed at Liverpool because the fans probably would've killed him if he left to go to Chelsea when h almost did. - BigBoyBlakey
He never delivered playing international soccer and only once at the big stage. He's massively overrated.
No discipline to his game. Liverpool were always better without him - FACT
I think gerrard and lampard are the most overrated footballers of all time.
Gets too much credit
Good but no where near
Benzema isn't as good as everybody thinks he is. How he stayed at the club when better strikers such as Higuain and Morata were getting disposed. Even Mariano Diaz is better than him. Put Giroud or Crouch at Madrid, they would score the same amount, if not more than Benzema.
This guy is comes to the field to show off his beard.
Got 3 goals 2014/15 and got 3 goals 2015/16 season. Totally overrated.
Easily the most overrated player ever. He was garbage and never nowhere near the level of messi, C.ronaldo, maradona, Pele, zidane, ronaldinho, ronaldo, figo, henry, neymar, robben, Robert etc etc etc
Crap that's all I can say
How Who is Paul pogba, pele and Messi more overrated then beckham?
Sell out. - Azarel21
The most overrated player of all time. He called Messi a footballer with one skill. He said that Becks he is afraid of him. He also once said that if Messi needs to be compared to him, he asked him to score above 1000 goals and win 3 World Cups. He didn't actually score 1200 goals. Most of them were unofficial. He scored only some 750 goals. And those were scored because he is surrounded by brilliant players and had weak opponents. That's also the reason why he won 3 World Cups. But Messi plays against difficult teams and is surrounded by weak players. Messi leads his team singlehandedly. that's why he didn't win any world cup. If he had the players who Pelé had, then Messi would have won 4 World Cups and would have scored above 1000 goals officially.
Pele isn't better than the ones such as Maradona, Cruyff, Zidane, Ronaldo Fenomeno, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Messi, and Cristiano Ronaldo. He scored 1283 goals in his whole career because friendlies were counted, not to mention he played at Santos most of the time. All those names could regularly score at least 60 goals a season (maybe except Zidane, Kaka, and Ronaldinho because they are midfielders) if they play for Santos.
HOW IN THE WORLD are Messi, C.Ronaldo, R9, and Pele on this list they are the best players of all time
Pele was surrounded by great players, which made his life very easy.
Rooney is VERY overrated in my opinion, not on the same level as strikers like Messi, Ronaldo, Lewandowski, Cavani, Ibrahimovic, Benzema etc etc etc
Most people know him because he scored the Hand Of God goal in the world cup final
Crack or cocaine
Mean an rude on and off pitch
He is a disgrace with his dangerous tackles and disapline
Plays in farmers league and everyone thinks he worth more than any other player.
He is way too overrated
How is he overrated
Retards that put him on here
He shouldn't be on this list
Why is he here
He is bad
Sanchez is terrible, he gets paid 600,000 pounds a week to sit on the bench and be terrible when he plays. can't shoot to save his life even with his good foot. was only good at barcelona and then went to crap when he went to Arsenal and then to hell when he went to United. - BigBoyBlakey
Neymar grew up watching this guy dive all over the park. Look where it has gotten him to! - BigBoyBlakey
Had a few solid seasons at Barcelona and threw it all away with a lack of discipline and partying.
No way jose mourinho
Hasn't won anything for club or country and probably never will. - BigBoyBlakey
He's has had only 2 good seasons in his entire career, he's like Jamie Vardy but just worse. He performed slightly above avg at Roma then liverpool came calling and had one great season. He hasn't won anything for his club or country. He only won the Puskas award because everyone felt sorry for him because he didn't win the best player of the season. Then he ultimately went missing in the biggest game of the season, the champions league final. And his hairdo reminds me of my pubic hair. he purposely hits the ball into opponents hands to get penalties, does a Neymar impression with his dives every game and he can't even score against the suckish Man United. He's just just so overrated.
Has to be carried by bobby firmino and Mane. He's the poor man's version of Edinson Cavani - BigBoyBlakey
Has had only 2 good seasons, he played slightly above avg at Roma and Liverpool came calling and bought him for a measly 42 million and had one great season but ultimately went missing in the biggest match of the season the champions league final. His hairdo reminds me of my pubic hair. He hasn't won anything and only got given the Puskas award over Riley Mcgree because the officiaters felt sorry that he didn't win best player.
Underrated shooting abilities
Most overrated defender of all time. With the most overrated team ever. Van Persie should have gotten PFA Premier league player of the year 2011/12
Most overrated midfielder of all time
My man did “take the L” in a World Cup final.
He misses the ball a lot and doesn't score as much goals as he should so his team appreciates him.
Worst opinion ever
He's so overrated he spends his career at a crap club, then because his club is a feeder club for Liverpool he gets bought for a pathetic sum of money. Can't score to save his life. Can't play to save his life. but I will give him this he his far, far, far, far, far better than Mo Salah could ever be.
He was not great. Totally overrated and he went to Fulham at 27.
The most overrated que didn't accomplish anything
Had the potential og becoming a good player
The most overrated goalkeeper ever.
David de Gea Quintana is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Premier League club Manchester United and the Spain national team.
He's not good. he lets goals in.
The only reason that he is still playing soccer is because his dad George Weah was the world's best player
Is not good
Screw u kobe for your stupid opinion on scholes. gerrard was so much worse - BigBoyBlakey
