This has become a pretty regular sight

In August Ramos’ dismissal against Deportiva La Coruna saw him equal the La Liga record for red cards with a pretty hefty 18.

And he’s still only 31.

But sit back and digest possibly the most mindblowing statistic you’ll see this week.

Neymar was pretty controversially sent off for the first time in PSG colours on Sunday after lashing out at a number of Marseille players who had been hacking him all game.

He appeared to clash with L’OM forward Lucas Ocampos, who dramatically fell to the floor clutching his face in a bid to get the Brazilian superstar sent off.

And it worked.

Neymar doesn’t always strike you as the type to end up in the referee’s bad books – but we’re about to debunk that myth entirely.

The Brazilian is a secret card merchant

The Brazilian is a secret card merchant

At the age of just 25, he now has 138 yellow cards and eight red cards for club and country which is an obscene total.

That means, at his current rate of roughly one card every 3.6 appearances, he could surpass Ramos’ record inside the next two and a half seasons.

Get your head around that.
