Ghana midfielder Mubarak Wakaso has achieved an unwanted record in Spanish La Liga after becoming the first player to have seen five yellow cards this season.

The 29-year-old has been booked five times after seven round of matches in the league.

He picked up his fifth yellow card over the weekend when Deportivo Alaves recorded a 2-0 victory over Real Mallorca at home.

The fifth booking means he will be unavailable for selection when Alaves travel to face Valencia on Saturday.

Aside from that, Wakaso has been one of Alaves best players this season.
He has been named in team's starting line up seven times and lasted entire duration of the games six times.
