Man City’s fiery striker Carlos Tevez came third on 13 per cent, followed by Gareth Bale and Samir Nasri with 12 and 11 per cent respectively.

Making up the list were Spurs’ Rafael van der Vaart, Man United stars Nemanja Vidic, Wayne Rooney and Paul Scholes, Spurs’ Luka Modric and Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard.

Manchester United’s veteran midfielder Ryan Giggs was the player most fans would like to have  a drink with while the controversial El Hadji Diouf beat the recently retired Gary Neville to the crown of footballer fans would least like a pint with.
