John Terry

A 2011 Turkey, Terry secured the honor again when he was stripped of his England captaincy in February and the English Football Association charged him in July for alleged racist verbal abuse of Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand during a Premier League match last year. Terry had been cleared by a London court, but the FA handed him a four-match ban and $356,000 fine nonetheless. Returning to Chelsea's lineup on November 11, he scored a goal and then was carried off the pitch after injuring a knee ligament.
