Top 10 Worst Football (Soccer) DiversWelcome, football fans! It's time to tackle a topic that's as divisive as a late equalizer and as heated as a derby match: diving in football. For the uninitiated, diving, also known as simulation, is an attempt by a player to gain an unfair advantage by falling to the ground and possibly feigning an injury, with the aim of deceiving the referee into thinking a foul has occurred. It's a controversial part of the sport that has sparked countless debates and a fair share of outrage.
Now, we can all agree that football is a beautiful game. It's a sport that captivates us with its breathtaking goals, nail-biting finishes, and moments of genius. However, every now and then, the beauty of the game gets marred by players who decide to take a tumble rather than play fair. These are the divers, the players who prefer the theatrics of a well-rehearsed fall to the thrill of an honest challenge.
So, who are the worst culprits of this unsporting behavior? That's the question we're asking you today. We're looking for the players who have a reputation for diving, those who have been consistently criticized for their theatrics on the pitch.
It's time to vote for the footballers who you think deserve to be recognized for their less-than-admirable acts of simulation. Thousands of fellow fans have already had their say, and now it's your turn to join in. Maybe it's a player who's known for their dramatic falls, or perhaps it's someone who's been caught on camera one too many times. Whoever it is, this is the place to make your opinion known.
Remember, this isn't about their skill, their goals, or their assists; it's about the players who've chosen to dive rather than play the game as it's meant to be played.
I really don't care how good he is, I still think he is the worst athlete I have ever seen. I don't have anything positive to say about this man, except that he is good at soccer, which in this case, doesn't help at all.
Should act like a the great player he is.
Glorifies himself over the team.
Enough with the ugly celebrations.
Enough with the gorilla face after every goal.
Worst football player and diver ever
He and fellow real players and fans think barca is a cheat club but truly no club and players are worse in cheating than real madrid.
Lots of players dive, but C. Ronaldo seems to be proud of it. It's irritating to watch and reflects on his country.
Great player but a diver
Ronaldo pissed me off when he was in Manchester, but has stopped his antics. However, Busquets just keeps on diving.
Remember that Classico when he fell down and covered his face? After a while he checked to serif everyone was looking! Worst diver ever
By far the worst diver, makes Ronaldo look like an honest player. Busquets chose to play football, I think he would have done better as an actor or a proffessional diver
Diving / Faking challenges... this guy is a disgrace to football...
How is Neymar not #1 on this list. He dives at least 3-4 times per game and is simply a disgrace. The fact that Messi is higher than him just shows how stupid most of the people are on this website.
By far the worst especially with his status as a youth ideal and marketing legend.
Worst in the world... how does he not top this list? He is a truly classless
He's a cheating bastard!
Racist and bites other footballers (even kids) just watch Luis Suarez bit my finger.
He dives to bite a player.
He is a racist person
He just bites
Mess I hardly dives he is a stand up player and will get up after he got hacked but there are plenty of others in the barca squad who do enough diving for the whole LA liga. I recommend red cards for diving and they will stop doing it within 3 month
What's this hype about Messi being a great player? He too, dives like any other player.. and so, he too is just ordinary
Why is messi here? He never dives!
I voted for Messi just to say I'm a real madrid fan but I know that Messi never dives
Best diver in the world. But this is logical since his half country is underwater.
If it weren't for his diving in the world cup, Mexico still had a chance to win!
He should be nominated for the best diver ever!
Keeps diving in matches
New to the diving world but quickly climbing the stairs will he be able to beat Ronaldo at the top?
Without a doubt the worst diver out of anyone, he is SO BAD! how is heskey here though?
He is a massive diver
Slow, Cry baby who calls himself better player of the world and didnot know who Pele was! A real jerk who barely knows how to read, smokes marijuana, and dives like a sloth would.
