Top 8: Star players the critics love to hate (1)

Astronomical price-tags coupled with intense modern media scrutiny mean that star players are under the constant glare of attention on and off the pitch, but some players seem to draw ire from critics on a more consistent basis thanks to start power and pressure to deliver.

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil is finding that out the hard way this season, with a £42.4m fee trumping any suggestion that German international needs time to settle in the minds of a whole host of detractors.

Ozil is far from alone though and should take solace in the strain suffered by some of his contemporaries, who are either judged too quickly or hammered to a ridiculous degree when their performances don't meet the required standard.

Here GMS has profiled the eight players the media love to hate, while examining if the negativity is justified!

Do you think the media criticism of Ozil, or other top European players featured, is deserved, or part of a wider problem in the modern game.
