As we continue our examination of the inept, the hapless and bizarre in football, we continue to realise that for every example of superb striking, goalkeeping greatness and defensive distinction there is an episode of asshattery that simply cannot be ignored. This is the place for those players to get their recognition, people. Applaud them, for without their endeavours our game would be perhaps be ‘better’ but far less entertaining.
NAME OF APPLICANT: Martin Caceres
POSITION/CLUB: Defender, Sevilla (on loan from FC Barcelona)
BUSINESS UNDERTAKEN: Dribbling
CITED EVIDENCE: Photographic (above)
KICKETTE VERDICT: Martin, something’s not quite right here. Perhaps it’s the additional weight of your ‘on trend’ socks pulled over the knees that’s tipping you off balance. While we applaud your dedication to your team’s cause and note (via the expression on on your face) that you have realised and accepted the possible ramifications of your commitment, might we gently suggest that a vertical position might be more appropriate for this task?
Please accept your Fail Award in the spirit it is meant. And this cold compress for your face.
