Survey says…Frank Lampard, Jozy Altidore, Andrea Pirlo, and Mix Diskerud are the most overrated players in the MLS.
ESPN conducted an anonymous survey of 127 MLS players and the information they gleaned will surprise you.
The most overrated player in the league is: Mix Diskerud.
My question is who was rating him so high in the first place?
I like Mix but he’s nothing to write home about.
Lampard, Pirlo, and Altidore, on the other hand, are names you might recognize.
New York City FC had three of the four most overrated players on the list. Interestingly enough, David Villa escaped mention while Pirlo and Lampard were skewered.
The injury prone Jozy Altidore was narrowly eclipsed by Diskerud for the top spot.
Other big names that made the list were Steven Gerrard (5th), Giovani Dos Santos and Michael Bradley (Tie-6th), and Clint Dempsey (8th).
Diskerud was the only player named who makes under $2 million per year.
Sounds like the players surveyed might be a little jealous – lotta pocket watchin’ goin’ on here.
Eyes on your own pockets, boys.
