- Jefferson Louis can easily be called the journeyman footballer as he has played for an astonishing 36 club in a career span that lasted for 21 years

- Louis, who plays as a striker has played in England lower division sides like Wrexham, Oxford United and Lincoln City

- But he admitted that his proudest moment is playing against Arsenal in the 3rd round of the FA Cup.

The 38-year-old has already played for two sides this season, Banbury United and Chesham United and is currently looking for another club.

This astonishing feat makes him the ultimate journeyman, usurping legendary goalkeeper John Burridge who played for 29 different clubs.

Speaking to Telegraph in 2014, Louis said: "It's like I'm cursed.

“When I signed for Wrexham, (Manager) Dean Saunders said: ‘I wish I had you when you was young. You’d be a Premiership player now.’

"For them to say this makes me think, wow. Something went wrong for me, innit?”

He has previously admitted that his journeyman tag has made it difficult for managers to trust him when it comes to giving him a fair crack.

I just can imagine the number of football jerseys he would have accumulated.

But these clubs are so poor, some can't afford to put names on the shirts. Maybe na to wash keep for next person

In the world of football there are 2 main kinds of players: The one club men-those who basically stick with one club for the most part of their career. Then you have the journeymen-the rolling stones that gather no moss. While Francesco Totti,former Roma skipper,is the chairman of the One-Club Men Association of Football,this Louis guy is the undisputed chairman of the Journeymen Association.
