Domenico Berardi marked his 150th Serie A appearance this week, in which the Sassuolo talent amassed 49 goals, 49 yellow cards and four red.
The 24-year-old winger has long been one of the brightest potential stars in Italian football and a top flight regular since 2014.
However, he continues to be held back by his temper and unfortunate lack of discipline.
The story is told in the statistics, because the 0-0 draw against Sampdoria on Monday evening was his 150th Serie A game.
He was booked for a late tackle and that means Berardi has now exactly as many goals as yellow cards in his top flight career: 49.
Add to this the four red cards – all of them straight dismissals – and Berardi becomes a liability for bigger clubs interested in his services.
The 35 assists to his name balance things out a little, but a player in an attacking trident should not have such a dismal disciplinary record.
