Some footballers possess an incredible talent, although they do not provide the necessary effort during training and meetings. They have trouble playing for 90 minutes, and their laziness is felt on their performance and statistics.
Here are a top 6 lazy players who should strive to be perfect!
1. Mario Balotelli
The Italian striker has an extraordinary talent but does not succeed in exploiting it. His former coaches like Cesare Prandelli and Roberto Mancini have often revealed that he spares no effort in training.
2. Zlatan Ibrahimovic
In a Champions League semifinal between Barcelona and Inter Milan, statistics showed that the Swede was running fewer meters than goalkeeper Victor Valdes. The fans of Man United were even used to his lazy style of play.
3. Dimitar Berbatov
The former Manchester United player did speak during his stay at the English club. He was one of the best strikers of his time at Manchester United and Tottenham. Despite his talent, most of his coaches have always criticized his lack of desire and commitment during training.
4. Adel Taarabt
Taarabt still has a long way to go but his lazy attitude does not allow him to exploit his talent. His former coach at QPR, Harry Redknapp once blamed him for being overweight although he had given him two weeks to lose a few pounds.
5. Yaya Toure
At the beginning of his career, Yaya Toure was a very energetic player. Arrived in Manchester City, he made a good start but suddenly released and became lazy. Paul Scholes, a former Manchester United player has stepped up once to denounce the lack of involvement of the Ivorian.
6. Nicklas Bendtner
Famous for his laziness, Nicklas could have become an incredible footballer. He was always lazy on the ground and did not want to run. The former Sunderland, Arsenal and Juventus players are enjoying their days in Wolfsburg.
