Who Are The Premier League Players You Love To Hate The Most?

ashley cole Who Are The Premier League Players You Love To Hate The Most?Admit it. There are some players in the Premier League who get under your skin. The type of players you love to hate. But who are they and why do you hate them so much?

Names of players who often get fans irate include:

  • Ashley Cole (Chelsea)
  • John Terry (Chelsea)
  • Frank Lampard (Chelsea)
  • El Hadji Diouf (Sunderland)
  • Lee Bowyer (West Ham United)
  • Emmanuel Adebayor (Arsenal)
  • William Gallas (Arsenal)
  • Kevin Davies (Bolton), and
  • Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United).

Players are hated for numerous reasons. Diouf won no fans with his spitting, diving and constant bickering. Players such as Adebayor and Lampard didn’t impress anyone with the rumors of them possibly leaving their clubs. Defenders Terry and Ferdinand have won few fans because of their off the pitch incidents, and so on.
