Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino has been named as the Premier League ace who has done most harm to the planet by flying.
The Brazilian, 28, has clocked up 97,907km jetting between matches for his club and country.
He tops the league ahead of Spurs’ Son Heung-min, 27, who has flown 88,829km playing for the London club and his native South Korea.
Firmino’s team-mate Sadio Mane, 27, came third jetting 82,036km for the Reds and Senegal.
The trio were revealed to have left the biggest carbon footprints of any Premier League stars in a study by the University of Manchester.
But Firmino was not the worst in the world – he came runner-up to fellow Brazilian Marquinhos, 25, who plays for Paris Saint-Germain.
Half of European football’s top 20 climate change bad boys play for Premier League clubs.
England captain Harry Kane, 26, who plays for Spurs, and his Three Lions’ team mate Raheem Sterling, 24, of Manchester City, are both on the list.
While Lionel Messi, 32, of Argentina and Barcelona, and Cristiano Ronaldo, 34, of Juventus and Portugal are also there.
The Eco-Friendly Footballers study showed the top 20 players in the world with the biggest carbon footprints together produce over 500 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
Andrew Welfle (corr), from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of Manchester, called on clubs to lead from the front and cut down on excessive travel methods which damage the planet.
He said: “I think the image of organisations such as the Premier League, Fifa and individual clubs is an important issue to discuss.
“The nature of the football sector where teams travel can regularly travel great distances for fixtures, in addition to having international playing staff and managers how frequently fly to get between their homes and places of work, is a recipe for a high carbon footprint.
“These emissions are large and when you take into consideration football fans also sometimes travelling by air, the impact will probably be several magnitudes bigger.
“If a light was to shine on these institutes I have no doubt they would do more, faster to reduce their impacts.
The study found 835 tree would need to be grown for 10 years to offset Marquinhos’s carbon footprint.
While Firmino’s high flying produced the same CO2 as six houses’ entire energy use for a year.
Heung-min’s carbon footprint was the equivalent of charging 5,750,806 smartphones.
And Mane’s caused the same damage as burning 43,949lb of coal.
Mr Welfle called on football clubs to reduce their use of private jets to `radically reduce’ carbon emissions.
