Defenders in football get booked in almost every match who is always a clear indication of how they are good at the back while only a few takes time before they get booked.
Former Real Madrid center-back who currently plays for Paris Saint-Germain Sergio Ramos has received 26 career red cards the most by any footballer since 2000. No defender can beat this record kept by the Spaniard international.
The 35-year-old star is regarded as one of the best defenders of the current generation having won every trophy in his football career including the Champions League four times, La Liga three times, UEFA Euro twice, and then the FIFA World Cup.
Moreover, there have been some other great center-backs and fullbacks who only received fee bookings in their careers compared to Sergio Ramos. German international and Bayern Munich legend Philip Lahm has enjoyed a successful career the same as Ramos but he never received a career red card.
Lahm was one of the best defenders of his generation and is also considered one of the best defenders of all time playing his entire career at Allianz Arena. Lahm mostly played as a central defender or a full back and he was at times deployed in a defensive midfielder role. Despite being left-footed he also played as a right back.
He used to be the captain for his national team Germany and Bayern Munich making some of the greatest achievements for a footballer. Lahm has won the World Cup, several league titles, and the Champions League with the Bavarians.
Despite these incredible accomplishments by the German one thing that makes him so special is not being sent off in a match. Being a defender and never getting a red card is very difficult but the German international achieved that.
