9) Sergio Busquets (Barcelona)
A fine player, and key part of the tremendous success enjoyed by both Barcelona and Spain in recent years, but a real hate figure for most fans after earning a reputation for diving and play-acting. The 25-year-old has perhaps cut this out of his game a little in recent times, but he notably pretended to be more hurt than he was, clutching his face in feigned agony in an attempt to get Thiago Motta sent off in a Champions League semi-final clash back in 2010. Seen peeking from behind his hands, Busquets didn’t do a great job of faking this injury, but still managed to get his opponent dismissed. Charming.
