A soccer fan's fanaticism has probably earned him a red card from his family.

Upset by the possibility that Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, who has been sensational at the World Cup, will not be playing for his favourite French club Ajaccio in the fall, the man has decided to trade his wife, children, mother and house to keep the goalie at the club.

Ochoa has been without a club as his contract with Ajaccio expired this summer, and there are rumours that British Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool are interested in his signature.

According to England's The Telegraph, the man put his property and loved ones up for sale on the French equivalent of Gumtree, and hopes to flog them all for around $16 million in order to keep Ochoa on a $60,000-a-week salary at Ajaccio.
