Suarez made some racist comments about Evra during a clash between Liverpool and Manchester United sometime in 2011.

3.Neymar Jr and Anthony Ralston

Nothing actually happened between these two #tbh. After the final whistle of the match, Ralston approached Neymar to swap jerseys, only to be rejected by the Brazilian player. Don’t judge just yet, Neymar was saving the shirt so he could donate it to charity.

4.Sir Alex Ferguson and Anderson

This incident happened in 2010, where Anderson actually had the guts to ignore Ferguson’s handshake. Later, the Manchester United manager admitted that the player was planning to quit the club. In another incident, Anderson was believed to have returned to Brazil without Ferguson’s permission and was fined £80,000 by the club.

5.Wayne Bridge and John Terry

This is a classic case of breaking the Bro Code. Chelsea legend John Terry was involved in a huge scandal back in 2009 that resulted in a broken friendship with teammate and pal, Wayne Bridge. Terry had an affair with Bridge’s ex-girlfriend Vanessa Perroncel shortly after Wayne and Vanessa parted ways.
