The vast majority of footballers play for money, who think that they are doing something a lot more important than playing football and deserve their disgustingly large pay cheques, but some are worse than others.
5. Emmanuel Adebayor
Emmanuel Adebayor is the type of striker who can score, but not do much else. This is why he is a player that should not be one of the highest earners in the Premier League, but he still is. Leaving Arsenal as they refused to break their wage structure for him, he left for Manchester City for over double what the Gunners were paying him, only to be left out by Roberto Mancini a season later. Greed personified. Now he is playing his trade at Tottenham.
