The Most Yellow Carded Players In Champions League History

The Most Yellow Carded Players In Champions League History

Sergio Ramos tops the list of the most yellow carded players in Champions League history, and most of the players on the list aren't able to catch up to the Real Madrid captain.

There's a reason Ramos' reputation precedes him, and it's the fact he pretty much tops every list for ill discipline possible for the Real defender.

Ramos tops the list of Champions League yellow cards and his closest rival, Paul Scholes, in unlikely to add to his tally, something that can't be said of the Spaniard.

Along with Ramos there's only two other men on the top 10 list that are still playing in Europe, with Dani Alves back in Brazil, in the form of Gerard Pique and Pepe, who used to partner Ramos for Real.

The Spain captain still extend his lead over Paul Scholes, and the rest of the pack, on Tuesday night when Los Blancos face Club Brugge on Tuesday.

He could also be reeled in by fellow Spanish centre back Pique, with Barcelona playing against Inter on Wednesday.

Pepe, however, won't be getting closer to his former teammate anytime soon with Porto only playing in the Europa League this season.

Shockingly Sergio Busquets is way down on the list with only 17 yellow cards in the competition, though he seems like the closest person to break into the top 10 who is still playing, even if Ramos is far off.

How many yellows will Ramos end his career on?
