As the orthopaedic foot and ankle consultant for the Chicago Fire, Dr. Vora gets to meet a fair number of professional soccer players, and this gives him the chance to get to really know these athletes’ personalities.

And it is this personal-level understanding of athletes that makes following sports more rewarding. Most soccer players in America are not under the same public scrutiny as, say, a Jay Cutler or a Marshawn Lynch, so fans can also catch a glimpse of these soccer players’ personalities.

That ultimately makes following the MLS much more fun. It’s easier to cheer for a team when you can identify with the players.

Below are 51 current and former professional soccer players whose personalities shine through on Twitter. Any soccer fans — hardcore fans and casual fans alike — should follow at least a few of the players on this list.
