The numbers, moves and records of Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Beckham and several other stars of world football are more than known. We talked about these athletes recently, by the way. However, a curiosity that is worth taking out is how these stars spend their time off the lawns and what are the hobbies and routines of those same players who bring crowds to football stadiums.
Let’s talk about some at least unusual and curious activities of some athletes:
The retired midfielder was a star at Manchester United and also at Real Madrid, in addition to the highlights he had playing for the England team, Milan, PSG and also the Los Angeles Galaxy. However, the passion of Beckham it doesn’t just keep the ball and the lawn. The former English captain is passionate about motorcycles, having already appeared with different models and brands. The situation is not very common, as motorcycles are often considered highly dangerous vehicles. Some athletes, by the way, have in their contracts that they cannot ride motorcycles because of any accidents that would take them off the pitch for some time. However, Beckham never seems to have had any problems with it.
Another athlete whose hobby is the world of speed is Cristiano Ronaldo, current best in the world. The Portuguese ace is a collector and passionate about cars from well-known brands. In addition, the athlete is also a poker lover, even making his presence felt in some celebrity tournaments. “I love the game, and I’ve always loved the challenge of beating my opponents one by one.“, said the athlete on becoming ambassador of PokerStars.
Another star of world football that is always worth mentioning is the Argentine Lionel Messi, forward for the leading FIFA rankings (as of this writing). Compared to other football stars, Messi has a more reserved personal life. However, in 2010, the Argentine proved to be a fan of the band Oasis and even considered starting a cover band in which he played guitar. In addition, the Barcelona star is also a fan of playing video games and, as cliché as it sounds, watching as many football matches as possible.
Finally, you need to place the attacker Paolo Guerrero, with passages for Hamburg of Germany, Corinthians and Flamengo. The Peruvian is a fan of horse racing and has about 15 animals for the sport. One hobby which is not cheap and also uncommon in the world of football.
