These Bad Boys Are Just Too Good To Hate
When you heard his names, maybe the first thing that crossed your mind is his phenomenal bite. Yep. This Uruguay player is infamous because of his bites toward Giorgio Chiellini in the 2014 World Cup match that put him in severe punishment. It’s not his first time, but the incident is the worst of all. He’s banned for many matches at every level and fined a large sum. But yet he recovered and shine even more as he joined Barcelona at the end of the season.
He loves to get under the skin of his opponents. He’s the villain who always makes sure to do it with a big smile on his face. And that’s why the media named him as the accidental hitman. The red card is his business card. You couldn’t find any player in the history of Europe’s top five leagues who collect more red cards than him.
He’s the party animal. Not much story of him in the pitch, but his personal life is quite something. He indeed believes life is for living, and he’ll enjoy it every single second.
