He’s so vain, I bet he thinks this post is about him… yep, Master Ronaldo is the winner by some distance. Everything he does screams ‘Everyone look at me!’ When Patrice Evra revealed that Ron’s nickname at Man U is ‘Playboy’ and that the Portuguese poser has his own personal mirror in the Old Trafford dressing room, was anyone really surprised?

2/3 Anton & Rio Ferdinand (West Ham & Man Utd)
Ah, the charming Ferdinand bros. They clearly take too much time over their hair, they dress in designer clobber all the time – you just know they’re both vain as hell.
4 Didier Drogba (Chelsea)
Just for the way he girlishly brushes his hair behind his ears all the time. He loves himself, doesn’t he?
5 Thierry Henry (Arsenal)
The perpetual pout, the ‘look-at-me’ goal celebrations. He’s gorgeous, he’s talented and doesn’t he know it.
6 Paulo Ferreira (Chelsea)
Can’t stop playing with his hair, even when he’s playing. Way too dark and handsome for his own good. That must be why Jose Mourinho signed him – not for his playing ability, surely?
7 David James (Portsmouth)
Changes his hairstyle about 20 times a season. Has modelled for Armani. Case closed.
8 Frank Lampard (Chelsea)
Anyone who kisses their ring so conspicuously after scoring, and who demands the ball at every set piece, has to be 100% vain.
9 El-Hadji Diouf (Bolton)
Come on, just look at him.
10 Freddie Ljunberg (Arsenal)
Spends far too much time in his pants, pouting. Does he even play football these days?

    Great list, perhaps a list of deshevelled players in the future?
    -Just as an aside, is there a list that does NOT have Frank Lampard in it?

    nice list.
    btw, ever notice that every times cristiano-i’m-too-good-ronaldo give an assist, he went to celebrate the goal by himself?
