Footballers Who Got Caught Up In Gambling

With all the millions footballers earn, it's not too surprising that many of them like to gamble, so today we take a look a few players who became addicted to betting.

Click through the gallery above to see some footballers who had gambling addictions.

There are many reasons as to why people become addicted to gambling, but the two main aspects seem to be the excitement it brings and it usually fills a void that has been lost.

Many footballers often don't know what to do with themselves once they walk away from the game, and sadly fall into the trap of becoming addicts.

In England especially, players enjoy a day at the races, and betting on horses is quite big these days.

Greyhound racing and poker are two other forms of betting that often suck people in, but there are those few guys who also bet on football and other ball sports, and got into trouble as a result.

Do you know of any other footballers who can be added to this list?
