“You’re nicking a living” is often an accusation levelled at Premier League footballers and, for the most part, it’s pretty harsh and uncalled for – like almost absolutely every single thing football fans say.
Over the years though, there have been plenty of examples of players who genuinely are nicking a living by turning out as professional footballers; Eric Djemba-Djemba, Igor Stepanovs, Ramon Vega, Winston Bogarde and Marco Boogers, to name just five.
Sadly, for football fans, there will now, forever and always be players who perpetually frustrate and have you scratching your head as to how they haven’t been found out yet.
