Their attempt to spoil the beautiful game has literally taken them nowhere, well, at least in some cases!

#5 Luis Suarez

When talking about Suarez, we often mention how good the Uruguayan is in terms of scoring goals season by season, match by match, as his career took a completely different step after he joined FC Barcelona back in 2014, winning the treble in his very first season and being an extremely crucial member of the MSN trio, consisting of Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr.

However, his qualities aside, we all know what Suarez really had in his past. Of course, none can forget the most famous match of the 2010 World Cup, where he was able to stop a goal with his hands.

That isn't all, Suarez's mid-20s were filled with some of the most bizarre incidents as his biting campaign, which started from his time back with Ajax continued all the way to the Premier League and then to the World Cup 2014, where he nailed the coffin. In addition, racially abusing Patrice Evra was something that the Premier League fans and players can never forget.
