Mario Balotelli

Starting with the most recent and an Instagram post that has earned the Italian a one-match ban since from the FA.

The post featured computer game character Super Mario with a list of reasons why the plumber was multicultural, before finishing with, ‘Jumps like a black man and grabs coins like a Jew.’

Joey Barton

If you like him on Twitter then great, but there are few players out there who have a greater presence on the Internet than they do on the pitch.

Also, for a player who has attacked teammates, been sent to prison and stubbed a cigar out in a youth player’s eye, his philosophy falls a little flat.

Ashley Cole

Following the FA’s decision to ban Chelsea captain John Terry his Blues teammate Cole defended the centre-back and was deemed to have lied.

This was followed with a tweet reading; ‘Hahahahaa, well done #fa I lied did I, #BUNCHOFT***S.’

Carlton Cole

Next up is how this West Ham United striker has managed to make a fool of himself online.

Cole tweeted “Immigration has surrounded the Wembley premises! I knew it was a trap! The only way to get out safely is to wear an England jersey and paint your face w/ the St George’s flag!” following a friendly between England and Ghana in 2011.
