Football is a sport followed by millions of people across the world. And gone are the days when football was thought to be a game of extravagant and school dropouts. Currently, you will find footballers who have had forms of education.
Take a look at these three highly educated footballers.
The 27-year-old holds a graduate degree in Public Relations. In addition, he is also a polyglot who speaks fluent English, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, French and Congolese.
The Belgian managed to combine games when captaining Manchester City, and to study to obtain an MBA degree. If he does open his own business, he already has great leadership skills. Convenient and smart decision.
What do you get when a soccer player is also an academic? Well, in the case of Andres Iniesta, he’s both. Iniesta has studied Biology and Sports Science simultaneously at university since 2009. Given his age and experience on the field, it’s no surprise that many young players look up to him as their idol.
