He belongs to Jesus | PA

Kieran Richardson, once labelled lazy by Roy Keane at Manchester United and dubbed "Lord Snooty' by Reds' supporters, has revealed he is a born-again Christian.

Having once bought a Bentley after just 21 first-team appearances for United, he was once synonymous with football's bling culture, but has since discovered God.

The Sunderland winger scored against Wolves in December to reveal an "I Belong To Jesus" T-shirt, much alike one sported by Brazilian World Cup star Kaka.

And he is just one of 10 sportsmen, past and present, who have preached their religion.
