Ten of the biggest hate figures in the game.
10) Pepe (Real Madrid)
An aggressive brute of a defender, with a tendency for reckless, stupid decisions, Pepe is certainly deserving of a place on this list for his on-pitch antics. The Portuguese centre-back didn’t take long to cause a storm at this summer’s World Cup, getting himself needlessly sent off in his country’s first game, which played some part in their eventual 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Germany. As well as thinking himself something of a hard man, Pepe also has the habit of going down too easily when challenged himself. A truly nasty character, who has been linked with Manchester City in the past, but not someone we want in the Premier League.
