Brede Hangeland talked about this on a Norwegian podcast (along with some other interesting stuff, like Felix Magath being an asshole and which forwards he hated playing against). You can read the translated version of what he said in this Reddit thread:

It's always interesting to hear what professional footballers think about their peers.

Who would be in your all-time lazy eleven?

I don't know, but Le Tiss would be captain in my team.

I know I've already recited this story several times, but here we go: on a cold Wednesday night Southampton was to play a cup game, but there was a pitch inspection ordered first. The ref poked at the ground a bit and saw that it was close to being frozen, but he didn't want to call the game off, so he gathered the players and managers and said: "Look lads, the ground is pretty dangerous but if you promise to run at 70%, I'll let the game go ahead.". To which Le Tiss immediately replied: "Fuck off, I'm not going to work harder for you."

I massively enjoyed reading that.

Any more of this type of stuff knocking about?

That first eleven was great. No surprises to see certain names pop up.

I wonder who would make the all time Everton lazy XI.

- Nyarko has already been mentioned.
- Yakubu wasn't exactly industrious.

Saha wasn't famous for his work rate either.

As if you gave one of our players a nickname.

Neil Disa Pointin.

I'm the one who's disappointed.
