Top five: Football’s most talented 'enfant terrible' (1)

Published Add your comment

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is set to return to the starting line-up in the league cup clash against Manchester United this evening.

It has been a long five-month wait for Suarez who is considered one of football’s and indeed the Premier League's 'enfant terrible'.

Suarez should expect a hostile reception if he features giving his rancorous history with United, emanating from his racial abuse on Patrice Evra which earned him an eight-match ban and his refusal to shake the French international defender’s hand when he eventually returned to action.

It is hard to think of another player who splits opinion as much as Suarez with their on-field and sometimes off-field antics.

However, this article attempts to take a look at five of the Premier Leagues most talented 'enfant terrible' – players who are as talented as they are troublesome, getting into trouble week-in week-out, bagging callous red cards and sometimes facing lengthy times serving one suspension or ban or the other.
