Who has been football’s biggest hot head for the last 20 years? Check it out here as we present the 25 players with the most red cards.
The average footballer only picks up a few red cards over the course of his career. They can be for anything from making a desperate last-ditch effort in a game to completely losing his cool altogether. The list of reasons can be endless…
