There is a term “bad boy” for players who are known to have excessive behavior. Like Roy Keane with a high temper, Ibrahimovic with his arrogance, and Sergio Ramos who sticks with hard tackles.
Yet, the players still shine with all the controversy. Despite those facts, there are also some players who have bad behavior and ruin their own career. Who are these players?
The Footchampion presents these following threads…
Nile Ranger was once considered the future star of Newcastle United. He managed to create a series of goals and win various awards at a young age.
However, when he entered the senior team, Ranger was considered as a player who was not disciplined. Leaving Newcastle in 2013, Ranger was faced with many negative things. He was often drunk and had even been caught on camera holding a gun.
In 2017, Ranger was jailed for robbery and fraud. This future star of Newcastle United also entered into the brink of destruction.

He was often drunk and was arrested several times due to negligence in driving. Because of his bad habits, his name immediately disappeared from high level football.
- Mario Balotelli

Having been known as a simple person, many people have expected Jobson to be the successor of Ronaldo and Pele in the Brazilian national team.

Many people may not realize that Ronaldinho is also missing from the football world at the age where he can actually shine.
