Every football fan loves and adores a particular football club. He also adores a particular football player. Usually, a fan gets into a heated debate of who is the best player? Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi. Some fans compare Virgil van Dijk to legendary Nemanja Vidic. Some people love the club and are emotional towards it. But there is one such aspect in a football fan that nobody can deny it. It is the hate for a particular club.
We have set the prelude for the best thing to discuss. Which is the most hated club in the English Premier League? When you Google the same, you will get several answers. Even a true Premier League fan will get stuck while answering the question. Today, we will reach a possible logical conclusion for the question, i.e., which is the most hated club in the English Premier League.
According to the Premier League loyals, there is no one such club that is most hated in the Premier League. The clubs were hated and are being hated in phases. The hate for the club is because of multiple reasons. It might be because of horrible and nasty managers, arrogant owners and fans, or the way of football. And finally, the success achieved by the club.
According to the above-mentioned characteristics, we can finalize three or four clubs that are most hated in the English Premier League. They are Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool in the English Premier League.
Why Manchester United is the most hated club in the English Premier League?
13 Premier League titles. This one word is enough to send the shock waves. Though Manchester United is behind their glory days, the hate is unreal. The opposite club fanboys wait to slander the manager and players. Under Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United was a team to reckon.
Sir Alex Ferguson was signed as the manager of the Old Trafford outfit in 1988 and it took four years for him to win the trophy. Once he started to win, there was no look back. He built one of the robust teams across two decades that helped him to win the Premier League titles, FA Cup, and even Champions League.
There are also reports that Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United were getting on the nerves of referees just to edge past the opponent in the Premier League. They were the sides that used to get more penalties and fewer yellow and red cards. Achieving the treble in the 1999-00 season was one of the main reasons behind the unreal hate towards Manchester United.
Why Chelsea is the most hated club in the English Premier League?
A low-key club in the initial years of 2000, Chelsea has grown into a stature in the last decade. Under Roman Abramovic, Chelsea has flourished and has not only won the Premier League titles but also Champions Leagues as well. The owner’s arrogance and flamboyance is the main reason behind Chelsea being the most hated club in the English Premier League.
Under Jose Mourinho, Chelsea became recognised club as they challenged the likes of the then dominant Arsenal side under Arsene Wenger and Manchester United. Jose Mourinho turned the two-horse race into three horse race with Liverpool trying to sneak in. Once Mourinho left the club, Chelsea lost its charm for a while but was never ignored.
Why Arsenal is the most hated club in the English Premier League?
Under Arsene Wenger, Arsenal was the dominant side in the English Premier League. They were always engaged in a title race with Manchester United, making them one of the most hated clubs in the English Premier League. During Arsene Wenger’s tenure, they also won the title without being defeated. They were called “The Invincibles” and it still remains intact. However, the departure of Wenger has changed them to the banter club in the English Premier League. However, every Manchester United and Chelsea fan wants to see Arsenal fighting with them to win the title and not win the banters.
