Starting the list of the Top 10 Fattest Footballers To Ever Play in The Premier League is the Danish man, Brian Jensen who currently plays for Mansfield Town as a goalkeeper. His senior career started when he signed for West Bromwich Albion where he played 50 games before joined Burnley in 2003. Despite being bigger than the average footballer, Jensen’s performance was fairly good, enough to help Burnley win promotion for the Premier League ten years ago.
9. Adel Taarabt
Taarabt has never been too slim, but after 2014 holidays he came back to work a bit overweight and then an injury at his ankle didn’t help him to reach his optimal condition, so he gained even more weight. Harry Redknapp, his manager at the time, had also complained for the Moroccan’s lack of professionalism.
After leaving QPR, Taarabt took to the social media to deny claims that he was overweight. But then again, few seasons later, it was all water under the bridge.
