Carlos Kaiser... Legend for the wrong reasons

Recommended Posts

came across the story of this guy recenlty... very amazed by his "achievements" 🤣

he played for 13 seasons, some years at big Brazilian and Mexican clubs, without kicking a ball

and always used the same reasons to siam playing lol

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_Kaiser_(footballer)

feign a hamstring injury

stay a few months at the various clubs just training

befriend journalists so that they would write fictional stories about him

used toy mobile phones, expensive and uncommon at the time, to create fake conversations in foreign languages or reject non-existent transfer offers to create an image of himself as a valuable player

claiming that he was part of the squad that won both the 1984 Copa Libertadores and the 1984 Intercontinental Cup by portraying himself as Carlos Enrique, an Argentinian player who was genuinely part of the squad

the club arranged a training session with the fans and, afraid of being caught, he shot all the balls to the crowd while kissing the club's badge

his friendship with journalists later earned him an article where he was depicted as a top goalscorer at Gazélec Ajaccio

saw a group of supporters shouting abuse at the players and started to fight them, for which he immediately received a red card without even participating in the actual match. After the match, he lied to the patron that the supporters called him a thief. He was forgiven and earned a six-month extension

later joined Vasco da Gama, where he was signed to help a teammate to overcome an alcohol problem[2] as he did not drink[6] and had a reputation of being a good person

 

 

the most recent football scam I can remember was the infamous Ali Dia, who faked Southampton to sign him lol

Power...eat snake god mode.

I always admire these buggers. It often takes more ingenuity and effort to avoid work creatively than to actually do the damn thing. 😂
