most polarizing footballers.

as would say- this list is satirical (mostly anyway).Criteria for selection- must be an active player during world cup 2006(club or country).(so no complaints about leaving out Baggio and Maradona).

in no particular order:

16. Cristiano Ronaldo - Winger/Forward - Real Madrid

supporters : people who like tricks, people who like one man shows, women, people who like great free kicks

haters: people who like team play, people who don't appreciate divers, homophobics, people who expect players to win back the ball when they lose it instead of turning away and shrugging.

15. David Beckham -Midfielder/Winger- LA Galaxy

supporters: women, people who appreciate a good free kick, any fashion designer who gets him to wear their outfits

haters: people who think going to MLS was a sellout for the $$, people who expect professionals to do more than deliver a good free kick, premier league goalkeepers (1993-2003) & primera liga goalkeepers (2003-2007)

14. Filippo Inzaghi- Striker- AC Milan

supporters: people who judge by goals only; people who want to be professionals but are too lazy to run, young players who think they've seen a way around running back to defend, people who appreciate positioning

haters: coaches who have to modify their offside trap, people who appreciate teamwork, every defender in Serie A since 1995, people who don't like to see players fall over 10 times a game

13. Ronaldo - Striker -Corinthians

supporters: people who appreciate player who can play anywhere, England fans after 2006, the entire football watching population of Canada
