5 Footballers With the Most Red Card In History, Check Sergio Ramos Position

Most players receive only a few red cards in the course of a career. Red cards can be a last ditch effort for a referee to control a game after it becomes unhinged. Typically, the events that lead up to a red card are unintentional - almost humorous. (We can all thank Fellaini for this comical exchange with Sergio Aguero during the Manchester Derby.)

Some players, however, seem to have made a career of obtaining red cards. They are just plain good at it. For the nine players on this list with the most red cards in football history, a red card is a preventative action that gives every opposing player a sigh of relief.

Footballers With The Most Red Cards In Soccer History

#5 – Paolo Montero (21 career red cards)

#3 – Sergio Ramos (25 career red cards)

#2 – Cryil Rool (27 career red cards)

#1– Gerardo Bedoya (46 career red cards)

#5 – Paolo Montero

The Uruguayan holds the record for the most red cards in Serie A history and was sent off 21 times in his career. Montero was quoted saying: "Sometimes you have to do anything to win and this is my nature." According to the 7-minute long video below, our best guess is that Montero means not seeing the opposing players as people is "anything."  

#4 – Alexis Ruano Delgado

The Spanish centre-back has been known for his temper and this punch on Mario Mandzukic (link below). Alexis has been handed 22 red cards throughout his career.

#3 – Sergio Ramos

It would be criminal to have a list of players with red cards and not include Sergio. The Spaniard has received 25 red cards and has the most in La Liga history (20). He also has the highest number of red cards in El Clasico with five dismissals. Check out all five red cards he has earned in El Clasico in this video

#2 – Cryil Rool

Rool has been known to start brawls, go into tackles blindly and karate kicking opponents (video below). Receiving 27 red cards throughout his career, it is no surprise Cryil is second on the list.

#1 – Gerardo Bedoya 

Arguably the dirtiest player ever to step onto a pitch is Gerardo Bedoya. The Colombian defensive midfielder accumulated a whopping 46 red cards during his spell as a footballer. Bedoya often seemed confused as to whether he was in the octagon or on a soccer field. Gerardo has since started his career has a manager for Colombian side Independiente Sante Fe and was sent off into the stands during his first game. Some people never change.
