10 | Emre Belozoglu | 181 yellow cards
For a stylish footballer, Emre was a dirty ba***rd.
9 | Giampiero Pinzi | 182 yellow cards
Just the 119 yellows and 13 reds while at Udinese. Impressive.
8 | David Albelda | 183 yellow cards
177 of those yellow cards came at Valencia. What a legend.
7 | Raul Garcia | 185 yellow cards
Garcia is still at Athletic Bilbao and could move up the list between now and the time he retires.
6 | Gabi | 189 yellow cards
He’d have no doubt pleased Diego Simone at Atletico Madrid by picking up 122 yellows and eight reds.
5 | Daniele Conti | 190 yellow cards
Just the 186 yellows for Cagliari for Conti.
4 | Xabi Alonso | 197 yellow cards
Really? One of the most technically gifted footballers in history picked up almost 200 yellow cards. To be fair, he couldn’t really run, could he?
3 | Dani Alves | 210 yellow cards
Considering his pace and the fact he largely played for a side that dominating possession, it’s staggering the Brazilian picked up so many bookings.
2 | Gerardo Torrado | 228 yellow cards
The Mexican picked up 147 and 13 reds during his time at Cruz Azul. A short spell at Sevilla earned him seven yellows and two reds.
1 | Sergio Ramos | 259 yellow cards
Who else? Ramos has earned himself 210 yellow cards at Real Madrid to go along with his 26 red cards. It’s a record that will surely never be beaten.
