Footballers loving life on vacation


With the FIFA World Cup over and the European football season yet to start, players and managers alike are out and about.

For many, it’s time for a well earned vacation, put up their feet on the beach and spend some of their millions.

First up, we have young gun Marcus Rashford, who’s clearly left England’s World Cup disappointment behind him in the wake of the jet ski. The Manchester United striker is taking advantage of the superb Barbados weather.

Also enjoying a ride on the water in Barbados is new DC United signing Wayne Rooney and his family.

Meanwhile, in Spain, Lionel Messi takes a much needed break from the spotlight after another poor Argentine World Cup campaign.

At the other end of the scale is Kylian Mbappe, a 19-year-old World Cup winner. The Frenchman seems to still be getting used to the paparazzi as he blows off some steam in party-central Ibiza.

Testing out his ball skills with friends on Miami beach is Liverpool keeper Loris Karius, who perhaps should be hard at work stopping the ball, not kicking it.

It’s not just the players on vacation. Recently retired and highly sort after coach Zinedine Zidane was also in Spain with his wife and four children on a boat.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and his wife Ulla Sandrock opt for catching some rays on the beach, a far cry from those English winters.

Finally, winning the battle of the bods in the football manager department is former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, showing he looks just as good without a suit.
