What a journeyman. And then...

On 28 April 2007, just before a game in the Serie B between Pagotto's Crotone and Spezia, Angelo Pagotto tested positive for cocaine. He pleaded guilty at a hearing on 30 July and was banned from professional football for life. However, Pagotto appealed and on 14 September, his sentence was decreased to eight years. His ban expired on 2015, when Pagotto was 41.

John "Angelo" Hansen, Harald Nielsen, Allan Simonsen... The Danish NT being a club for amateurs until Sepp Piontek came in 1979.

Probably similar with many Dutch players, like Faas Wilkes, though the Netherlands were 15 years ahead or so.
