Playing professional football in this social media driven age can forever taint your reputation if you make an awkward mistake.

Brace yourself for the 25 most embarrassing football goals ever allowed.
David de Gea is looking like the new Fabien Barthez.
When I first watched this, I was crying because I was laughing so hard.
It's as if the goalkeeper has never dribbled with the ball because he was like a dog chasing his tail after he simply dragged the ball back.
Yael Averbuch, who scored the wonder goal, would go on to represent the United States.
Meanwhile, Susan Starr, who conceded the goal, never reached any significant professional milestones.
To give you some context to the game, Empoli came into this game needing one point to avoid relegation, and as Chris Kamara would say: "they were fighting like beavers."
In stoppage time, Marco Materazzi did what he did, to the astonishment of the Empoli players, who could not believe their luck.
Paul Robinson has never been the same since that goal.
People seem to remember Gary Neville making the pass and there was nothing wrong with the pass.
Do you remember who told Neville to pass it back?
The goalkeeper momentarily forgot he was a goalkeeper but Radwan Al-Moosa ensured he'd take the headlines.
Yes, Pavol Ďurica is still playing professional football and no, he hasn't been converted to a forward...yet.
Lee Dixon had a touch of quality because he scored some great goals and was ice cold from 12 yards out.
Too bad on this occasion, it was an own goal.
This wouldn't have happened if Khalid Askri was humble, instead of striking his poise for the camera.
Jurgen Sierens had done well to make an unorthodox save with his feet.
I don't understand why he didn't use his hands.
He retired a year or so later and I wonder how much this goal affected his decision.
I guess Kakha Kaladze can take solace with the fact he didn't score a hat-trick of own goals.
This is what hesitation does to you.
I have no idea how Carl Jenkinson ended up at Arsenal because he is not a Premier League standard full-back.
Maybe they should move him into up front because not even Robin van Persie scores goals like that.
Thirty-nine minutes into the game and Spain were already 6-0 up, so Iñigo Martínez decided to make it a bit even.
Iain Dowie made it clear to management that he should never be allowed inside his team's penalty box.
Even after that own goal, years later, Lens let him rejoin the club.
Unsurprisingly, Goran Rubil didn't last another season at Hajduk Split.
If Jamie Pollock did this regularly on the other side of the field, he would have represented England.
Poor Chris Brass broke his nose, too!
When in doubt, clear the ball, but make sure you don't blast it into your own net.
To be fair to Laurent Koscielny, he has played a lot better this season.
David Hutton certainly doesn't play goalkeeper on FIFA.
Having just pulled of a great save, how on earth did Goran Basic punch the ball into his own net?
Why did Virgil Vries lift his right foot over the ball?
