6 Exceptionally Gifted Players Who Are Massively Underrated

Over the years we have watched several top players grace the beautiful game with compassion, desire and extreme talents.

Some footballers are easily noticed by the media and fans who brand them world class players while others are hardly spoken about in spite of their tremendous work ethnic and unbelievable skillsets.

This players are underrated and their value is not appreciated by the media. Rather than talk about them, the media or fans prefers to talk about Mohamed Salah, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Mesis and so on.

Olivier Giroud- The French striker is the most underrated striker in the Premier League.

Giroud have spent 8 years in the Premier League and not for once has he been regarded as the best striker in the Premier league despite been the only striker in history to win 4 FA Cups with two different clubs {Arsenal 3 Chelsea-1}.

He has also won the EFL, the Europa League and the World Cup with France and yet, Giroud is till not considered a world class striker.

Gini Wijnaldum- The Dutch superstar is most underrated player at Liverpool and Holland. People hardly talk about GIni except he those something spectacular like scoring a 35 yard screamer against Leeds United.

Had Wijnaldum not scored a screamer against Leeds United, no one would’ve been talking about him nor will they be urging him to sign a contract extension. Wijnaldum isn’t just Liverpool’s most consistent player, he is man to turn to during big games.

Believe it, he is the reason Liverpool won the Champions League and other trophies and not Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane or Roberto Firmino.

Mesut Ozil- The Turkish born player is a world class player who posses the foresight to breakdown defenses with a single pass. Ozil skillset is similar Andres Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez, Lionel Messi and even Kevin de Bruyne.

BUt sadly, that quality is not valued by his manager Mikel Arteta at Arsenal. He is underrated and forced to sit in the shadows even though Arsenal are badly missing him.

Paul Pogba- The World Cup winners is world class player but most will argue with that notion. Some fans believe he is overhyped by the media having watched him struggle for form and consistency with Manchester United.

With France, Pogba is almost unrecognizable. You see him produce world class touches, passes and movements. But at Manchester Untied which sadly is weekly, Pogba struggles to even link up play. Probably, this is why people underrate him.

Alvaro Morata– The striker is almost turning into a journey man despite his qualities. He has played for Real Madrid, Juventus, Chelsea, Altetico Madrid and now Juventus. The attacker is just labelled a ‘good header’ who have the legs to run.

Morata is a world class striker but sadly, he is undderated by the fans and media.

Antoine Griezmann- Grizzy is just like Pogba when it comes to quality and consistency. He is without doubt a world class player but his decision to ditch Atletico Madrid for Barcelona who clearly don’t suit his style have affected his performance.

People have forget his incredible contribution to both Real Sociedad and Atletico Madrid in the past and now focus primarily on his output with Barcelona which frankly is average and no way close to world class.
