There’s a new Guinness World Records holder for the most professional clubs represented

Uruguayan striker Sebastian Abreu wrote himself into the Guinness World Records after signing for 26th professional club Audax Italiano

We’d like to see how tattered Sebastian Abreu’s passport is.

At the age of 41 the Uruguayan striker has just set a Guinness World Record by signing for his 26th professional club.

Abreu joined Chilean top flight side Audax Italiano, who you might remember as the club that sold Franco Di Santo to Chelsea for £3.4million in 2008- something they are still laughing about.

El Loco, as he’s unsurprisingly known, tied with maverick German keeper Lutz Pfannenstiel when he joined 25th club Puerto Montt last year.

His prolific performances in Chile’s second division convinced Audax that Abreu still has what it takes to thrive in the top flight.

Abreu played in Uruguay, Spain, Argentina, Mexico, Ecuador, Israel, Brazil, Paraguay and El Salvador before moving to Chile.

But, surprisingly, he never played under Sam Allardyce at Bolton or Harry Redknapp at Portsmouth.

Abreu’s also tasted success on the international scene.

He’s played at both the 2002 and 2010 World Cups as well as appearing at the 1997, 2007 and 2011 Copa Ameria tournaments, the latter of which he won.

We would say there’s not a chance of him ousting Edinson Cavani to lead the line for Uruguay in Russia but, after the year we’ve just had, he’ll probably end up top scoring at the 2018 World Cup.
