A defender to go his whole career without being sent off is quite a rarity and must surely require a cool head as well as luck to have never been shown a red card. One mistimed challenge or one cheeky elbow can easily put them in the ref’s bad books.
#9. Damien Duff
This Irishman gets to kick off this list of football angels with a long distinguished career both at national and international levels. Throughout his years he has never once been sent off and continues to this day playing for Melbourne FC. He retired from the International stage two years ago.
