Polarising Players: Ozil, Fellaini, Luiz, Benzema, Altidore, Bradley, Higuain

These seven players are never universally loved or reviled, but something vague in-between.

You know the kind of player who just divides opinion wherever he goes? Well, ESPN FC has picked out seven of the best, and you can watch why we think they are so polarizing below.

Mesut Ozil

The Arsenal playmaker isn't a beloved figure at the Emirates but has his moments of brilliance.

With criticism coming from all directions, Arsenal's Mesut Ozil may be the epitome of a polarizing player.

Marouane Fellaini

Do people dislike him because of his uncompromising, physical style or the fact that he's still so vital to Jose Mourinho and Manchester United?

While David Luiz certainly brings flair to the game, his lack of defensive discipline contributes to his polarizing status.

David Luiz

Slapstick defending and untimely moments of indiscipline hound the Brazil international. But he's still such a vital cog for club and country.

Jozy Altidore has received his fair share of criticism over the years, and he may be the U.S.'s most polarizing player.

Karim Benzema

He's one of Real Madrid's most prolific scorers yet gets booed if he misses a chance to add to his tally. Why?

Few players divide opinion quite like Michael Bradley. The FC panel debate his status as a polarizing player.

Jozy Altidore

He's integral to Toronto FC's success yet seen as a potential weak link for the U.S. national team.

Michael Bradley

As goes Michael Bradley, so go his teams. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Gonzalo Higuain

What's not to love about the Juventus striker? There are few better at putting it in the net but it's all about the goals he doesn't score.

Do you agree? Perhaps you don't think these seven are polarizing players at all? Which side do you fall down on? Let us know in the comments section below.
