A little light hearted one for the Ed's if they don't mind?

What's the most ludacris clauses in players contracts you know about?

I heard rumours that glen Johnston had to play a certain amount of games per season otherwise the club would be penalised, not sure if true but got me to thinking what other crazy ones do and of the Ed's know? Is there ones like a player must be the highest earner at a club whilst he there or has a player got yo have the coolest haircut so on so fourth.

{Ed001's Note - the highest earner clause is very common, Messi, Harry Kane and Ronaldo have one just off the top of my head.}

Didn't Ronaldinho and Deco have clauses that they could go partying 2 nights a week?

Ed does the "I play every game if fit" or the alleged Glen Johnson clause even exist and if so, did GJ have that at LFC or does any other player you know, have that currently? Cheers, mate.

{Ed001's Note - they exist or used to, very commonly. Regularly teams would use it to convince a player not so keen on the move.}

mourinhos one that he has to get sacked on his 3rd year is the best.

While at Fiorentina, Gabriel Batistuta had a clause which stated if he was teams top scorer he was allowed to choose one of the jerseys worn by former players which were framed on the wall.

I don't know which jerseys he chose every time but I do know he chose Roberto Baggio once and that each time he sold the shirts at auction giving the money away to charity in his home town in Argentina

That's the most unusual one I ever saw.

Every time I played for my local team when they were short, I’d say yes if the manager bought my drinks after. does that count?
