10 Crazy Reasons Footballers Were SACKED By Their Club

Don't play cards with Dennis Wise.

It's no secret that footballers can be a bit of an odd bunch.

That's not to say that every single player in this glorious game has a screw loose, as some are actually lovely human beings who use their riches and profile to make the world a better place for us all - looking at you Juan Mata and Marcus Rashford.

However, there are the odd one or two (or ten) footballing stars who opted to do things that can only be described as, well, crazy, whilst under contract, and it's not hard to see why their clubs decided to send them packing soon after.

Is it really that difficult to keep your nose clean and finally let rip once your career is in the rear-view mirror? Apparently so.

Kung fu kicking fans, reality TV show appearances and even crapping next to a vehicle have all landed these particular players in the doghouse.

It's not everyday you see a footballer given the marching orders from a club and when you do it tends to be down to a brief moment of madness or a painfully bad decision.

Or sometimes both.
