Top 10 Footballers Who Seriously Hate Each Other

#10. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Rafael van der Vaart


These two names saw their paths meet at the start of their playing careers at Ajax Amsterdam. Zlatan, who was always a larger than life type of figure, never took a liking to the then golden boy of Dutch football. The issue started when the duo played against each other in an international friendly between Sweden and Holland. Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s tackle injured the Dutchman who saw this as more malice than a regular tackle. Upon resumption of the club calendar, the two almost came to blows. Since then, Van der Vaart’s career has experienced a downward spiral while Zlatan has gone on to become one of the biggest stars of the game today.
