5 footballers who 'scored' off the pitch

Here are five football players who are known for being larger than life

George Best

Some people just can’t take life all that seriously. Deep within, they might just be as sad as most of the rest, prompting them to do things to forget about the miseries buried deep within, but their exterior gives one the impression that they are living life without any care for what others would think.

Footballers might be humans just like you and me, but they are a little different than us. They can’t eat whatever they like, sleep whenever they want to, go to shopping whenever they like to… they are actually a deprived bunch because of the superstar status.

However, some footballers just don’t care. For them, life is too short to be taken seriously. As a result, they break the protocols that footballers are ‘supposed’ to follow.

And it is for this reason that some of the most talented players of the game ended up being lesser than what they could have been. The partying nature—one filled with women and wine—became the reason for their downfall.

However, not all footballers let it affect their careers as some were successful at not letting the two mix up. Regardless of that, here are 5 footballers who were/are known for the playboy nature…

He might not be much of known name outside of England, but on his day, he was a good scorer—not just on the pitch, but off it as well.

He might as well have become a good footballer had he taken his gift more seriously. After all, this is a man who was fined for partying on the night his team, Aston Villa, were relegated from the Premiership. His out-of-shape physique gives one a perfect idea about the kind of footballer that he is.

And, as you may have guessed it already, he was one of those playboys who loved the company of multiple women.

During 2009, a report emerged that he was dating 3 different women at the same time. It also claimed that he impregnated all of them. Some serious stuff, this.
