It is one of the only things that everything hates on the field, and defenders are more likely to go through it.
Whenever an own goal occurs, every single person looks down with disappointment at the player who made it.
In the course of history, the majority of their own goals have happened due to an error, while some of their own goals are plain mistakes.
However, it is the worst nightmare for a defender to get any of them.
Today we take a look at the five players who have scored the most own goals in football history.
Manchester City fans will never forget Richard Dunne. In his career, Dunne played 400+ matches and scored 10 own goals. He also shares the record for the most red cards (8) with Patrick Vieira and Duncan Ferguson.
It was during 2005-2008 when he was Man City’s player of the season, which made him unforgettable to City fans. In his career, there are a lot more good moments than some dull ones, and getting 10 own goals tops them all.
One of the biggest players in the history of Italian football. Baresi was a part of AC Milan for 20 long years when he won pretty much everything.
A fine player who is still remembered for the things he did for the Rossoneri. A player of his class scored eight own goals in his career, although he scored 20 goals for them too.
A key player for Inter Milan who was the best player on the pitch during the 1980s. He won the Coppa, Serie A, and UEFA with the Nerazzurri during his career.
Unfortunately, he is also the player with the most own goals in Serie A history. Another defender who scored more against his team than for them.
The fourth person on this list is also a Liverpool player. Martin Skrtel was a great defender in his prime and strikers used to fear going near him. At multiple points in his career, Skrtel made grave mistakes but still got the chance to play for them.
In one season, he managed to score four own goals, and it took him just five seasons to score seven of them. Despite making mistakes, Skrtel was a good player and an angry one.
One of the most well-known pundits in English football, as well as a fine player, scored a few too many own goals during his career. A Liverpool player who has been with the club for 17 years.
In those years, he managed to get four goals and seven own goals for them. Carragher is also the first player to net two own goals in a single match.
