Chelsea nutter tops poll in list ranking the Premier League’s most hated footballer ever

Joey Barton

5. Joey Barton – 7%

Barton is a player that often proves divisive, and got on the wrong side of the public at Manchester City when he attacked teammate Ousmane Dabo on the training ground, causing the Frenchman to be taken to hospital.

Then in 2008 he was jailed for assaulting a 16-year-old in Liverpool city centre, which he then topped up by stubbing out a cigar on the eye of a City youth team player in Thailand.

He’s a spiky character on the pitch, and his views and use of social media have made sure he remains a sticky customer.
