7 Footballers With The Highest Number Of Red Cards In History (Photos)

7. Yannick Cahuzac

Yannick Cahuzac is a 36-year-old attacking midfielder for RC Lens in the French professional soccer league.

Cahuzac once set a record by receiving three red cards in four games, and he now has a total of 17 red cards.

6. Pablo Alfaro

Pablo Alfaro Armengot, 52, is a retired Spanish coach and professional footballer who played central defense for Racing Santander and the Spanish national team.

During his 15-year professional football career, he won 418 La Liga matches and scored seven goals while receiving 18 red cards and being sent off nearly 30 times. He played for six clubs, the most notably Sevilla.

He served as a coach after his retirement from football in 2007 at the age of 38.

5. Paolo Montero Iglesias is a 50-year-old Uruguayan coach and professional footballer who last played for Pearol and the Uruguay national team as a central defender.

Montero began his professional football career with Pearol in Uruguay thirty-one years ago, before going to Atalanta in Italy in 1992. Four years later, he was acquired by Juventus, where he won four Serie A titles before being sold to Pearol in 2006.

He was a member of the Uruguayan national football team at the FIFA Confederations Cup in 1997, the FIFA World Cup in 2002, and the Copa América in 2004.

Monetero also had a remarkable career with the Uruguay national team, competing in the 1997 FIFA Confederations Cup, 2002 FIFA World Cup, and 2004 Copa América, but he received 21 red cards, maybe as a result of his ferocious manner, which occasionally went beyond all bounds. He belonged to the gang of defenders who would put their opponent down in any manner they could, fair or unfair.

He withdrew from football fourteen years ago and is now the head coach of San Lorenzo, an Argentine team.

4. Alexis Ruano Delgado

Alexis Ruano Delgado is a Spanish professional footballer who now represents Racing Santander and the Spanish national team as a central defender.

Delgado is presently ranked fourth on the list of seven footballers with the most red cards in history, with 22.

3. Cyril Rool

Cyril Rool is a 46-year-old retired French professional footballer who last played as an offensive midfielder for Marseille and the France national team.

He is well-known for his tough play, which is backed up by a career record of 25 red cards and 187 yellow cards, making him one of the most red-carded players in football history.

2. Sergio Ramos

Sergio Ramos Garca is a 35-year-old Spanish footballer who currently plays as a defender for Paris Saint-Germain and the Spanish national team.

Ramos has participated in four World Cups and three European Championships for Spain. He won the 2010 FIFA World Cup, the 2008 and 2012 UEFA European Championships, and the 2012 UEFA Euro Team of the Tournament. He made his first appearance for Spain when he was 18 years old, and in 2013, he became the youngest player in Spanish history to earn 100 caps. Ramos is the most capped player in the history of the Spanish national team, as well as one of the country's top goal scorers.

Ramos, despite being largely regarded as one of the greatest defenders in the sport's history, can be overly aggressive and has paid the price for it on numerous occasions. With 26 red cards, he is ranked second on this list.

1. Gerardo Bedoya

Gerardo Alberto Bedoya Mnera is a retired Colombian professional footballer who most recently played as an offensive midfielder for Ccuta Deportivo and the Colombian national team.

With 46 red cards, Bedoya is known as the Beast, and he now holds the record for the most red cards received by any player in football history.

Bedoya received his 41st red card and was sent off for an elbow and subsequent kick to the head aimed at Millonarios player Jhonny Ramirez during a match between his previous team, Independiente Santa Fe, and Millonarios nine years ago. He was also suspended for the next 15 games for his actions. Since then, Bedoya has been deported several times.
