Nigel de Jong's ONLY career red card
Here it is ladies and gentleman. In an 18 year career, Nigel de Jong has broken more bones than Bruce Lee and put more players' careers in jeopardy than appearing on Who's The Boss. However, he has only ONCE been sent off from the field of play for his actions - and it wasn't even a straight red.
Waaaay back in 2006 while playing for Hamburg, De Jong dug his cleats into two Rapid Bucureşti players during a UEFA cup match. Both challenges are absolutely disgusting and in typical fashion, he is utterly perplexed the referee thought they warranted bookings.
Hm. Some things just never change.
