Right before the World Cup kicks off, Zlatan Ibrahimovic claimed that the World Cup without him will be nothing but boring. Like him, there are many players who give themselves a higher value as the best in the world. Some others have been overrated due to little things they just did. Today, we will take a look at the top 6 overrated football players.
6. Radamel Falcao
Falcao was believed to be among the best strikers, making clubs like Manchester United and Chelsea invest in him. But after displaying poor performance, the Colombian ace deceived everyone. With 4 goals in 26 league appearances at United and only 1 goal in his first dozen appearance at Blues, Falcao is now regarded as something of a joke.
5. Gerard Pique
When they talk about the luckiest footballers, Pique should come to everyone’ mind. The Spanish defender is among few players who had a chance to play with both GOATs, Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi. But focussing on his personal skills on the field, does he really deserve to make a starting line-up for Barcelona and Spain? Talking about Spain, did you know Pique was responsible for 2 of the 3 goals that cost them a draw against Portugal during their opening game in the World Cup?
4. David Luiz
Luiz is not as a combatant as other Center-Backs we know. Ridiculous passes and pieces of techniques can easily mask his limitations as a defender. What still remains as anyon’s guess is the amount of money spent on him in transfers. But the lucky Brazilian is always blessed with a strong midfield and that’s probably the reason he’s never exposed.
