Football is a sport in which a player's chances of being booked during a game are quite high, especially if he is a defender or defensive midfielder. A defender getting booked in a football match is extremely unusual, and it only happens in rare situations where defenders do not get booked in several matches.
A player might be booked for a foul, poor pitch discipline, or even insulting the referee. While some players go their whole careers without earning a red card, others accumulate the most red cards and are unable to play for lengthy periods of time without being sent off.
Gerardo Bedoya, Sergio Ramos, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Dani Alves, Javier Mascherano, and Mauricio Pochettino are among the players who have received the most yellow cards in football history. Sergio Ramos, who is presently at Paris Saint-Germain and has gotten more red cards in the remaining years of his career, is the only active player on the list.
Some players, on the other hand, played their whole professional football careers without receiving a red card. Ryan Giggs, who spent his whole career at Old Trafford, is one of the best players in the English Premier League.
The current Wales captain is considered as one of the Premier League's most decorated players, having recorded the most assists. It's unthinkable for a player to spend his whole football career with a single club and league and never receive a red card, especially in the Premier League, which is one of Europe's toughest leagues.
In the English Premier League, where tackles are witnessed in every match, it is impossible for a player to maintain such a record. Despite appearing in 672 games for the Red Devils at Old Trafford, the Welsh international never received a red card.
Throughout his career, Giggs earned a number of yellow cards, but he always made sure that his Manchester United colleagues were focused and didn't lose their minds during games. It was a tremendous feat for a player whose football career spanned two decades not to get sent off.
