Usually, professional footballers are slim athletes with physics in six packages, but there are always exceptions. While most of these players are in good shape, some should try to lose a few pounds!
10. Name of Player: Thibaut Courtois
Current club: Real Madrid
Nationality: Belgium 🇧🇪
The former Chelsea goalkeeper is on the list mainly because of his size. Courtois is one of the toughest goalkeepers in the world, but he is not at all fate. The Belgian Stopper is almost two meters high and has a thick physique, which is the result of hard work in the gym.
9. Name of Player: Romelu Lukaku
Current club: Inter Milan
Nationality: Belgium 🇧🇪
The 6 '3' attacker is a 94 kg animal, an absolute nightmare for defenders! Lukaku has gathered a lot in the past two years to meet the requirements of the Premier League. Mourinho is worried about Lukakus's weight because he seems to have built too much muscle. Wearing additional muscles takes it to a certain speed.
8. Name of Player: Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Current club: A.C. Milan
Nationality: Sweden 🇸🇪
Without doubt one of the funniest people in football. Because the Swedish striker is in his thirties, his metabolism slows down, adding extra pounds. This means that Zlatan needs to spend more time in the gym to control his weight so he can extend his career and reduce the possibility of injury again.
7. Name of Player: Jannik Vestergaard
Current club: Southampton F.C.
Nationality: Denmark 🇩🇰
Vestergaard is 1.99 meters high, the ideal size for a defender so he can easily win headers without jumping. He moved to Southampton in the summer to increase his chances of survival. The giant looks like a great addition to the team!
6. Name of Player: Lovre Kalinić
Current club: Toulouse
Weight: 96 kg
Nationality: Croatia 🇭🇷
Kalinic is the second goalkeeper to reach the top ten. The Croatian played against Ghent in Belgium and is the second national goalkeeper. Its weight and size are not ideal for goalkeepers because they have to be lighter to maintain their reflexes.
5. Name of Player: Kim Shin-wook
Current club: Shanghai Greenland Shenhua F.C.
Weight: 97 kg
Nationality: Korea, South 🇻🇳
Kim Shin-wook is another giant that makes the list. The Japanese forward is one of the most feared strikers in the K-League.
4. Name of Player: Harry Maguire
Weight: 98 kg
Nationality: England 🇬🇧
Half of Leicester's center doesn't look exactly like a professional soccer player because of his body. Maguire is a little tougher, but that doesn't affect his performance on the pitch with Man United trying to recruit him in the summer. Not surprisingly, Maguire is the heaviest player in England with two kilograms. He has to reduce bread to increase his chances of moving to a bigger club.
3. Name of Player: Roman Torres
Current Club: Manchester United F.C.
Weight: 99 kg
Nationality: Panama 🇵🇦
Roman Torres is officially the toughest player at the 2018 World Cup. The defender is from Panama and plays his club football in America with the Seattle Saunders. Despite its weight, Torres still has enough speed and athleticism to play at the highest level.
2. Name of Player: Christopher Samba
Current Club: Retired
Weight: 100 kg
Nationality: France 🇵🇫
The heavyweight center back has been a wanderer in the past five years. Fortunately, he returned to playing English football and played in the championship with Aston Villa. Samba is a physical center back who is not afraid to knock down and maintain his dominance.
1. Name of Player: Adebayo Akinfenwa
Current club: Wycombe Wanderers F.C.
Weight: 103 kg
Nationality: England 🇬🇧
Adebayo Akinfenwa is the toughest professional soccer player in the world at the top of the list. The attacker receives a lot of attention because of his unusual body shape. Its heavy construction is the opposite of that of modern soccer players in 2019. Despite all the rumors about his physique, Akinfenwa is a decent soccer player. He currently plays for Wycombe Wanders and has scored 17 goals last season. For a man of his size, this is an extraordinary achievement!
