Inter Milan's Back Up Keeper Hasn't Played Since 2013 Yet Has Been Sent Off Twice



Inter Milan's reserve goalkeeper has gone seven years without playing a game and yet has still been sent off twice in that period.

37-year old Tommaso Berni, who only has 120 career appearances under his belt, hasn't been involved in a match since he turned out for Sampdoria in 2013.

He would then sign for Torino and Inter, where he has basically been a mascot during the last six years. But that hasn't stopped him from getting himself in trouble.

Last night, Nerazzurri youth product Berni was shown a red card in Inter's late 2-1 win over Parma for dissent in the 68th minute - adding to a dismissal earlier in the season.

That red card came after the final whistle was blown in the Inter-Cagliari game back in January when he sarcastically applauded the referee for giving Lautaro Martinez his marching orders in the 1-1 draw.

The fact he has been sent off twice despite not playing a single minute is quite impressive when you think of it.

Berni has had his contract extended until the end of August, so there's a bit more time for him to increase his red card tally.

It's reported that the former Braga and Lazio goalkeeper earns around €200,000-a-year being a member of the squad and all you can do is respect the hustle.
