Everyone knows of Iscariot the Judas. He was one of the twelve apostles who betrayed Christ to the Jewish authorities in return for thirty pieces of silver. But hey! Who is a Judas in Football? As Football Fanatics, we scream in sheer delight when our favourite players produce moments of absolute magic, Clench our fists whenever they showcase their out of the world skills on the pitch, but what when these same players move to Greener pastures when fatter paycheques become the ultimate Motivation.

Not everyone is like a Gary Neville, Paolo Maldini or Steven Gerrard. We as fans tend to immortalize or grant them Cult status, but we tend to forget that for these same players Football is a profession and they have the right to choose their paycheques. But that’s the point we make that Money does make more noises than Loyalty. So here we provide the list of the Top Five Judas in World Football

Luis Figo:

I am sad to start this list with one of the greatest Players of all time. But what the Portuguese had to go through in Spain after swapping Barcelona for Real Madrid was unimaginable. Figo was one of the most loved players at the Camp Nou, but history would only remember him being the target of all object thrown at the Ground include heads of Pigs. A Traitor Indeed.
