There has been a lot of bad incidents on the football pitch recently, with Diego Costa and Cristiano Ronaldo both getting banned for violent conduct, so the Fan Park Crew decided to look at some of the players in the game right now that have a bad reputation.
Gary Medel – Inter Milan
The Chilean has reputation for being a real hard man on the field of play. He is an energetic midfielder that seems to get himself into trouble often. He has a total of 66 yellow cards and 11 reds to his name, so you can see why he has made our list.
Nigel De Jong – AC Milan
De Jong has arguably toned down his aggression, but in all honesty it would be a sin to leave him off this list. The Dutchman was caught giving Xabi Alonso a karate kick to the chest in the 2010 World Cup final, and it was far from the first bit foul play in his career. Nigel has 99 yellow cards to his name, but surprisingly only has one red in his club career.
Pepe – Real Madrid
Pepe is considered a bit of a wild card, as you never quite know what you going to get with him. Pepe is no stranger to having serious outbursts on the field, with his most recent one being in the World Cup against Germany - while who can forget his ridiculous attack on Javier Casquero of Getafe. Pepe has picked up 94 yellow cards throughout his club career and has seven red cards to his name.
Maroune Fellaini – Manchester United
There has been a lot of talk around Maroune Fellaini and how he goes into tackles these days. The lanky Belgian has been pointed to on a few occasions, as he seems to throw his elbows about without concern when he goes in for a challenge. Fellaini has picked up 78 yellow cards and three red cards through his club career.
Diego Costa - Chelsea
Costa has recently been in the spotlight for his two stomps on Liverpool players in their Capital One Cup semi-final second-leg, but this isn’t the first incidents involving him. The Spaniard has got a short temper and has previously kicked and punched players while on the park. The striker has 96 yellows to his name and eight red cards through his career.
Who would you add to this list?
