Inter Milan's Back Up Keeper Hasn't Played Since 2013 Yet Has Been Sent Off Twice

Inter Milan's Back Up Keeper Hasn't Played Since 2013 Yet Has Been Sent Off Twice

Inter Milan's reserve goalkeeper has gone seven years without playing a game and yet has still been sent off twice in that period.

37-year old Tommaso Berni, who only has 120 career appearances under his belt, hasn't been involved in a match since he turned out for Sampdoria in 2013.

He would then sign for Torino and Inter, where he has basically been a mascot during the last six years. But that hasn't stopped him from getting himself in trouble.

Last night, Nerazzurri youth product Berni was shown a red card in Inter's late 2-1 win over Parma for dissent in the 68th minute - adding to a dismissal earlier in the season.

That red card came after the final whistle was blown in the Inter-Cagliari game back in January, when he sarcastically applauded the referee for giving Lautaro Martinez his marching orders in the 1-1 draw.

The fact he has been sent off twice despite not playing a single minute is quite impressive when you think of it.

Berni has had his contract extended until the end of August, so there's a bit more time for him to increase his red card tally.

It's reported that the former Braga and Lazio goalkeeper earns around €200,000-a-year being a member of the squad and all you can do is respect the hustle.
