Top Ten Most Overrated Football (Soccer) Players of All-Time


The Top Ten

1 Radamel Falcao

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

2 Cristiano Ronaldo

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 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.

He is the worst

he too old

3 Mario Balotelli Mario Balotelli

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.

4 Shinji Kagawa
5 Paulinho
6 Lionel Messi Lionel Messi Lionel Andrés "Leo" Messi is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona. He is also known as one of the greatest football players of all time. He was born in Rosario, Argentina on June 24th, 1987.

Messi is the best everybody else is overrated and this comment is gonna get hate but that just proves my point and to that idiot who added him on here go check hid highlights and get a brain and eyes while your at it

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

Just overrated... any one can see this mitigate's wc 2018 performance... can't play without good setup... worst ever Argentine with national team

7 Edin Dzeko
8 Iker Casillas Iker Casillas Iker Casillas Fernández is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Portuguese club Porto and the Spain national team as a goalkeeper.

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

9 Paul Pogba Paul Pogba Paul Labile Pogba is a French professional footballer who plays for Premier League club Manchester United and the France national team.

He has done nothing at man utd, overpriced overhyped and overrated.

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.

He is SSOOO bad!

10 Neymar Jr. Neymar Jr. Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, commonly known as Neymar or Neymar Jr., is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Spanish club FC Barcelona and the Brazil national team as a forward or winger, and is also the captain of the national team. more.

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?

Dives too much & he is not really good

Flops too much

11 Giovani dos Santos
12 Javier Hernandez Javier Hernandez Javier Hernández Balcázar is a Mexican professional footballer who plays as a forward for German club Bayer Leverkusen and the Mexico national team.

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..

13 Steven Gerrard Steven Gerrard Steven George Gerrard is an English professional footballer who plays for Major League Soccer club LA Galaxy.

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.

Gerrard was never world class and people say he is/ he was not in the same league as players like zidane-pirlo-xavi-iniesta-alonso-fabregas-figo-modric-rakitic-kroos-schweinsteiger-vieira-etc etc etc etc

14 Kevin De Bruyne Kevin De Bruyne Kevin De Bruyne is a Belgian professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for English Premier League club Manchester City and the Belgium national team.

Gets too much credit

Good but no where near

15 Gerard Pique Gerard Pique Gerard Piqué Bernabéu is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a centre-back for FC Barcelona and the Spain national team.
16 Olivier Giroud

This guy is comes to the field to show off his beard.

17 Karim Benzema Karim Benzema Karim Mostafa Benzema is a French professional footballer of Algerian descent who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid and the France national team as a striker.

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.

18 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.

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?

19 Philippe Coutinho Philippe Coutinho Philippe Coutinho Correia, known as Philippe Coutinho, or simply Coutinho, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for English club Liverpool and the Brazil national team as an attacking midfielder or winger.

Got 3 goals 2014/15 and got 3 goals 2015/16 season. Totally overrated.

20 Pele Pele Edson Arantes do Nascimento, known as "Pelé", is a retired Brazilian professional footballer who played as a forward. He is one of the best players in football, hence why he's nicknamed the "king of football".

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.

Pele was surrounded by great players, which made his life very easy.

HOW IN THE WORLD are Messi, C.Ronaldo, R9, and Pele on this list they are the best players of all time

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.
