We always admire those footballers who give us something beautiful to watch, to that extent that we would like to follow them even off-pitch; this is why we follow them on social Medias, are excited to know what they are up to, or enjoy following their interviews. What do they like to do off-pitch? What do they do with such a lot of money? In all, what are Their Best Hobbies?
5. Eden Hazard –Chelsea
Since Eden was old enough to read the Bible, he has never doubted that the Garden of Eden was named after him and that Adam and Eve are his sworn enemies for eating his fruit without asking his permission first. He is Muslim though.
The fact that Hazard doesn’t get much on TV shows, it’s hard to know how he kills time; however, from what we have seen, he loves dancing. He once got up on stage for an impromptu display during a performance from Christina Milian at a function for Didier Drogba’s foundation, the footage of which has since emerged on YouTube.

Zlatan loved to watch Muhammad Ali too: “One of my idols in sport and outside the sport also… he believed in his [principles] and he never gave [them] up.” His love for Taekwondo explains his bicycle kicks; by Body art, one may include; His surname is tattooed in Arabic on the back of his right arm, the names of his sons Vincent and Maximilian on his right arm.
