The Best Muslim Players In The 2016 Premier League


You might not associate Islam with football, but there are plenty of world class footballers who follow the Islamic faith.

In the English Premier League, you’ll find a host of superstars who are more likely to be at prayer after a match than in the pub chasing a few liquid moments of celebration.

It’s a tribute to England’s diverse culture that its citizens don’t often notice in day-to-day life. After all, what’s the point of being cosmopolitan if you have to flaunt it?

Nevertheless, it’s fascinating to see these top players in the English Premier League who are Muslim.
