There are a number of undisciplined world soccer players. One of them is a specialist defender of the Champions League. When you talk about the world’s top football players who are not disciplined, names like Mario Balotelli, Diego Costa, to Nigel de Jong might come to your mind.
1. Granite Xhaka (Arsenal)
Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka is not only famous for his frequent long-rangers but also for his terrible disciplinary actions on the pitch. The Swiss captain collected 100 yellow cards and 11 red cards from 2010 to 2022.
2. Damian Suarez (Getafe)
This one player has often been dubbed the bad boy in La Liga in recent seasons. Damian Suarez is a 33-year-old Getafe right-back.
That’s because of the tackles and fouls he always does in every game. The Uruguay wing-back’s indiscipline often made him miss several matches due to suspension. He was once involved in a massive brawl in Valencia where the hosts scored twice in stoppage time to secure an unforgettable victory.
After the final whistle, Suarez became involved in a fight which prompted the police to intervene. As a result, the defender was handed a four-match suspension which forced him to miss the trip to Barcelona this weekend. Even with his extraordinary experience playing for Uruguay and in the Spanish top flight, Suarez still doesn’t give up on his carelessness which often costs his team.
3. Sergio Ramos (PSG)
Even after his disciplinary record has improved slightly this season, Sergio Ramos remains one of the ‘dirtiest’ players in world football today. The player who is now with PSG is a very revered and respected figure in Spain. The former Real Madrid centre-back has some of football’s biggest honors in his locker, most notably the FIFA World Cup, two European championships, four Champions League titles, four La Liga titles and more.
But despite all his achievements, Ramos’ poor disciplinary record has even made him one of the most hated players. In 16 seasons with Real Madrid, Ramos holds the record for the player with the most cards in La Liga, with 191. His 171 yellow cards surpassed Alberto Lop, the former Spanish League yellow card record holder. While the remaining 20 are red cards, which makes Ramos also the player who has been sent off the most in the Spanish League. His La Liga card record is higher than that of any other player in Europe’s major leagues, making him the player who has received the most yellow cards in all of Europe’s top divisions.
4. Nicolo Barella (Inter Milan)
The current 24-year-old Nicolo Barella is one of the hottest prospects in Italy. The reason is, cia has extraordinary potential and abilities. The Inter Milan midfielder is a playmaker with a lively style and full of composure. But at the same time, he has earned a reputation as one of the most undisciplined players in the game. He often makes irrational tackles and dangerous fouls. That is something that must be improved if you are to progress as a great player.
5. Luka Milivojevic (Crystal Palace)
Crystal Palace captain Luka Milivojevic is perhaps one of the most important players at the club due to his leadership qualities, defensive solidity and set-piece specialization. The Serbian defensive midfielder has collected 255 fouls throughout his professional career. The 30-year-old is a ‘thorn’ for opponents on the pitch as he is often seen tugging at shirts, gliding aimlessly and ruthlessly stopping counter-attacks.
