Footballers are just like us, and there's more to a person than just one thing, isn’t it? There are many footballers who have taken up different professions after retiring from the game, but we are not talking about that. In this slideshow, we are strictly talking about hobbies, and not a means to make money off. Here are ten footballers and their hobbies that you might not know about:

#1 Andrei Arshavin: Fashion Designer

Arshavin fashion

Russia’s pride Andrey Sergeyevich Arshavin, or simply known as Andrei Arshavin has definitely proved his mettle as a professional footballer to the world, but did you know that the former Arsenal superstar holds a degree in fashion designing?

Arshavin is known to be a designer of women’s clothes and even has his own clothing line with products ranging from formal dresses to sportswear. Enrolled into the St. Petersburg State University of Technology and Design at the age of 17, Arshavin was there to study chemical technology. 

However, he later switched courses to take up sewing at the university because “there were lots of girls among the students”. And, the best part about it is that he’s not shy to admit it. 

“When I turned 17, I had to choose which university to attend,” he said in an interview. “My friends and I decided to try for the technology and design institute because there were lots of girls among the students and you didn’t have to study too hard, or so we thought. 

"I enrolled in the chemical technology department. But when I began training with Zenit I had to miss a lot of classes. I transferred to the clothes design department. I have designed several garments myself.”
