Football is certainly a beautiful game, but just like any other sport, it has its odd side. Stefan Schwarz is a former Swedish midfielderwho played for sever clubs during his 15-year career, the likes of Malmo, Bayer Leverkusen, Benfica, Arsenal, Fiorentina, Valencia, and Sunderland. Schwarz joined the Black Cats in 1999, and the contract had a pretty bizarre clause: the “Space Clause”(as it was known) didn’t allow the Swedish midfielder to travel into space! Else, the contract would be invalid. Maybe people were obsessed with going into space at the time (they still are.)
