2. Andy Reid
At number 3 of the Top 10 Fattest Footballers To Ever Play in The Premier League we have the Irishman, Andy Reid. Reid played as a midfielder for when he played in the Premier League with a good range of quick accurate passes and incredibly football skills which may have led to the nickname he earned “fat maradona” which was not of good intent seeing that Reid was overweight for most of his career but nevertheless, he was definitely a force to be reckoned with by rival players especially in his 4 seasons at Sunderland.
1. Tomas Brolin
There is definitely a clear reason as to why Tomas Brolin makes it at number 1 of the Top 10 Fattest Footballers To Ever Play in The Premier League list, fattest man of the Premier league time. He was certainly not the worst player but due to his lack of fitness, he might as well was. While playing for Parma, he suffered a terrible injury during the Euro 96 qualifier and was later signed to Leeds United where he experienced most of the criticism about his large appearance and since he never completely recovered from his injury, his performance was not impressive and he was later sold over to Crystal Palace. He tried putting in effort while at the club but it was never enough to get him back as a worthy player and as a result he retired at the age of 28.
