A football player is a profession like everyone else. Everyone wants to be satisfied according to their expectations. That is why very often professional footballers move from one team to another, as many people do – they move from one job to another. But for fans, this is not the case. There are transfers of players that they do not understand and cannot forgive.
The history of football remembers a number of vivid examples of the betrayal of famous legends. Here are some of them:
The French national leaves Juventus and goes to Manchester United . This transfer turns out to be the most expensive on the planet . The Red Devils are giving 105 million euros to get it back . Four years earlier in 2012, United handed it over to Juventus for the modest sum of 1.5 million pounds. According to the fans, the problem is not in the transfer itself, but in that in 2013 he stated emphatically that he would never return to United and there was no amount to change his decision.
Rooney is another footballer whose betrayal no one is willing to forget. In the distant 2004. the English striker of Everton makes a nice gesture after a goal. He shows a T-shirt with an inscription vowing allegiance to his team and leaves it months later. And the biggest sin of the star is not that he moves to United, but that he demonstratively kisses the emblem of the team in front of the thousands of Everton fans after a goal scored by his former team.
Ashley Cole, also known as Cashley until 2006. he played as a left-back for Arsenal , but a tempting offer from Chelsea for almost double the salary a week lured him and he quickly became part of the Blues. Fans of the Gunners are not only infuriated by the fact that he left the team, but most of all by the fact that with his departure Arsenal are unlucky in any match, and Chelsea counts victory after victory.

Former Brazilian footballer Ronaldo Luis Nazario de Lima or as he is also called Phenomenon is famous as one of the greatest footballers of all time. He is the only player in history who does not go directly from one rival team to another, but on the other hand throughout his football career he is part of Barcelona , Real Madrid , Milan and Inter . His stay in Barcelona and Milan is short-lived, but he lingers for about 5 years at Inter, then at Real Madrid.
Pat Jennings became a legend for both Tottenham and Arsenal . The Northern Irish football goalkeeper spent 13 years at Tottenham, then in 1977. went to Arsenal until 1985.
The English midfielder is another footballer who, after a long career in one team, recklessly turns into another opponent. Lampard became famous for his achievements for Chelsea . He has been playing there since 2001. until 2014, after which he moved to Manchester City , where he is to this day.
