The 50 Most Overrated Footballers Of All Time Have Been Named And Ranked By Fans

By Mike Parrott

A top 50 list of the most overrated footballers of all time has been voted on by fans with some very questionable players making the list and even finishing very high in the list.

The ideas of overrating and underrating players has been a staple of many arguments between footballers alike. Players such as Roberto Firmino and Anthony Martial have been deemed overrated over the past few years due to their lack of scoring output at their respective clubs of Liverpool and Manchester United.

However, a lost of the top 50 most overrated players has been released with very questionable results on the list.


With players such as Edgar Davids, Paul Scholes, Robert Lewandowski, and Ronaldinho making the list questioned the results, but the top 10 is very controversial to say the least.

50. Paul Scholes

49. Timothy Weah


48. David De Gea

47. Johannes Dhalum

46. Franco Armani

45. Emre Mor


44. Edgar Davids

43. Michael Bradley

42. John Arne Riise

41. Sadio Mane


40. Gabriel Morales

39. Antoine Griezmann

38. Zlatan Ibrahimovic

37. Robert Lewandowski


36. Michael Carrick

35. Jordan Henderson

34. Vincent Kompany

33. Gareth Bale

32. Mohamed Salah

31. Ronaldinho

30. Arjen Robben

29. Alexis Sanchez

28. Ronaldo

27. Eden Hazard

26. Kylian Mbappe

25. Sergio Ramos

24. Wayne Rooney

23. Diego Maradona

22. David Beckham

21. Pele

20. Ivan Rakitic

19. Lucio

18. Philippe Coutinho

17. Olivier Giroud

16. Karim Benzema

15. Gerard Pique

14. Kevin De Bruyne

13. Steven Gerrard

12. Javier Hernandez

11. Giovani Dos Santos

10. Neymar

9. Paul Pogba

8. Iker Casillas

7. Edin Dzeko

6. Paulinho

4. Mario Balotelli

3. Shinji Kagawa

2. Cristiano Ronaldo

1. Radamel Falcao

A very bizarre top 10.

With players such as Paulinho, Edin Dzeko, and Shinji Kagawa making the list who were never really seen as world-class players in their prime. Funnily enough the top two players of all time in Messi and Ronaldo make the top five overrated players albeit both having incredible trophy and goal-scoring records.

Falcao coming out as the top most overrated player is also very questionable. Falcao in his prime at Porto and Atletico Madrid was arguably the best out-and-out striker in the world, scoring 70 goals in his two seasons at Atletico.

Who do you think is the most overrated player ever and why is it Jordan Henderson?

Let us know in the comments.
