Despite being renowned for his honorable sportsmanship, Gary “Lefty” Lineker was actually sent off 10 times during his playing career, according to the Daily Mail.
The former Leicester, Everton, Spurs and Barcelona striker was also booked nearly every game, maintains the newspaper.
“Just because you read alternative facts in Wikipedia, doesn’t mean it’s true,” according to a Daily Mail spokesperson.
“Lineker is a holier-than-thou hypocrite.
“He tries to maintain the moral high ground by saying he was never booked but in fact he was a vicious player, always getting into trouble with referees.
“It’s well known that he only went to play for Barcelona so that he could avoid paying tax in England.
