7 Footballers Rejected For Being 'Too Small'

Franck Ribery of Bayern Muenchen celebrates after he scored a goal to make it 5:0 during the Bundesliga match between FC Bayern Muenchen and Hamburger SV at Allianz Arena on March 10, 2018...

We just did a video on the best footballer at every height from 5’1” to 6’11”, yes, that’s right, 6’11” - so go and give that a watch if you haven’t already - but making that video gave me another idea.
