10 Most Controversial Figures In Chelsea History

There's a long list of sinners in Chelsea's history, but who's No.1?

From the boardroom to the pitch, controversy has a long and mischievous association with Chelsea Football Club. Our club heroes may include saints like Gianfranco Zola and Peter Osgood, but we haven't shied away from cheering on the occasional sinner either. There are a couple of players in the current squad who could find themselves added to this list in future, with Cesc Fabregas having a bit of a reputation for mouthing off and Diego Costa's temper sometimes getting the better of him, but for now let's give them the benefit of the doubt for now.
