Footballers are today the closest thing to rock stars in the world of sports, along with some basketball and football players in the United States. In the rest of the world, where football is the king of sports, these young millionaire boys are praised as true stars, known by all and idolized by both the youngest and the adults who are fans of this sport. Their lives seem ideal from the outside, but it is true that being a professional footballer should not be easy. You can see the good, the money, the fame, the success … but the day-to-day effort, the pressure they suffer in each game, in each season, that must also be understood.
Not only do you need talent to stand out in the world and go far, but also a cool head, a lot of personality and above all, knowing how to focus very well on sports. However, in recent times there are footballers who have made their public image profitable in many ways, beyond the sport itself. A player’s professional career ends at age 40 at the most, and then they have to make the most of their own image as well. That is why on many occasions, especially now with social networks, footballers are closer and more open with their fans. Their partners have also become celebrities, some of them almost more famous than the athletes themselves, and gossip magazines often talk about them on many occasions.
