Top 6 Fattest Goalkeepers In Football History

Football is a very physically demanding sport, especially in modern games. Fitness programs, nutritional requirements, and training plans used by professional teams, especially in high football, especially in modern games, are very physically demanding sports. Fitness programs, nutritional needs, and training plans used by professional teams, especially at the highest levels, do not leave much room for unsuitable players. As usual, there are some exceptions. One of them is the keeper, who obviously has less physical travel during the match and often tends to carry a little more weight. Others are very talented or technical players whose skills cover their physical deficiencies, and someone like goalkeeper Neville Southhall Everton (who is not on this list) is a good example. Given that the professional game is around 150 years old, there are many players who are overweight, and as such, some of them have disappeared from the top 6 list. Some of these goalkeepers have fitness and weight problems after serious injuries or accidents and may be perfect athletes so far this, while others are "fat" for most of their careers. For some people, their weight affects their careers, limits their potential, and sometimes leads to early retirement. He could not save it for others and independently reached the highest level. Here are the 6 fattest players.

1. Neville Southall

Date of birth: September 16, 1958

Clubs: Bury, Everton, Port Vale, Southend, Stoke, Doncaster, Torquay, Bradford, York City, Rhyl, Shrewsbury, Dover, and Dagenham and Redbridge

Nationality: Welsh

Position: Goalkeeper


Retired: 2002

"Give me a wave, Nev!" was a request for a common motive from fans who showed support for their team's number one. Southall has a great relationship with his fans at the club and still behaves respectfully today. The Welsh goalkeeper's legend has been wrongly criticized for its weight over the years, even when he plays and plays. Today he has turned this attention into a positive movement and uses his public profile to draw attention to a number of important social issues such as mental health, sex work and addiction.

2. Mark Bosnich

Date of birth: January 13, 1972

Clubs: Manchester United, Sydney United, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Central Coast Mariners, and Sydney Olympic

Nationality: Australian

Position: Goalkeeper

Weight: 86 kg

Retired: 2009

On my list of fat players is the Australian goalkeeper Bosnic, who you may have witnessed in a number of disputes over the years. Marriage allegedly cheating to get a work permit, a cocaine session with British model Sophie Anderton and sending Nazi greetings to White Hart Lane to name a few. Not surprisingly, Bosnic did not do well on days that could not be played (or because he gave up his cocaine habit), but at least the wilder days were over.

3. Jeroen Verhoeven

Date of birth: April 30, 1980

Clubs: RKC Waalwijk, FC Volendam, Ajax, FC Utrecht, and ASV De Dijk

Nationality: Dutch

Position: Goalkeeper

Weight: 99 kg (218 lbs)

Retired: 2017

The Dutch stopover, Hieroen Verhoeven, began his career at Ajax, the club's legendary academy. He left before appearing, but returned to the Dutch giants nine years later as a reserve goalkeeper, playing three league games in three years. Verhoeven is known for his enormous waist and familiarity to mock and abuse opposition fans. Despite his lacking appearance, Verhoeven was a twice-technical champion at the Eredivisie with Ajax and won the second division title with FC Volendam.

4. Kevin Paul Pressman

Date of birth: 6 November 1967

Clubs: Sheffield Wednesday, Stoke City, West Bromwich Albion, Leicester City, Leeds United, Coventry City, Mansfield Town, Portadown, and Scunthorpe United

Nationality: England

Position: Goalkeeper

Weight: 97.51kg (15st 5lb)

Retired: 2009

Kevin Pressman was the first goalkeeper on this list, but certainly not the last. He has a 22-year career and spent 17 years on Wednesday in Sheffield, where he played more than 500 matches. His clubs then included Leicester, Mansfield and Portadown. Like Quinn, Pressman is attractive without an English cap, even though he plays for the U21 and B teams.

5. Patrick Paddy Kenny

Date of birth: 17 May 1978

Clubs: Bradford Park Avenue, Bury, Whitby, Sheffield United (loan), Sheffield United, Queens Park Rangers, Leeds United, Bolton Wanderers, 2014 Oldham Athletic, Ipswich Town, Bury, Rotherham United, Northampton Town, Maltby Main Town,

Nationality: England

Position: Goalkeeper

Weight: 89.34kg; 14st 1lb

Retired: 2017

Paddy Kenny, a 37-year-old English striker, has a long and respected career in the match, but there are always big problems. her weight His fitness is often questioned, and even his old manager and admirer Neil Warnock once said, "The first thing I did was to go on a diet. He ate burgers, pizza, and french fries - and that was the same Day." He has played 654 games over his career, but now in his mid-30s, his fitness problems seem to have caught up with him, and he hasn't played regularly in almost two years.

6. Wayne Shaw

Date of birth: 13 January 1972

Clubs: Southampton, Reading, Basingstoke Town (loan), Gosport Borough, Wimborne Town, Bashley, Bournemouth, Gosport Borough, BAT Sports, 1996–1997, AFC Lymington, 1998 AFC Lymington, AFC Totton, Eastleigh 58, Wimborne Town (loan), Sutton United 5, Fleet Town 3, Eastleigh, Sutton United 2, Gosport Borough, Sutton United, Alresford Town

Nationality: England

Position: Goalkeeper

Weight: 150 kg; 320 lb

Retired: 2017

Former English goalkeeper, Wayne Shaw is one of those fat footballers in love of pies! He even ate a pie during half time in a match against Arsenal not caring about how that may affect his form and also not caring about the fact that a betting company had betted on his eating a pie on Television! Shaw is now 48 years old; he played for more than 10 English clubs during his career that lasted for 27 years, namely from 1990 to 2017, but he never went beyond the fifth tier of the English football system. The reason is quite clear!
