Football is a demanding sport and this makes it hard for players to try other things during their careers. However, some have managed to learn how to play a number of instruments. Today, we take a look at five stars who are not only good on the pitch but also in playing a number of musical instruments.
5. Sandro- Guitar
Former Tottenham Hotspurs midfielder Sandro has moved around quite a lot since the last time he played at White Hart Lane. The Brazilian is currently playing for Serie A side Benevento on loan from Turkish side Antalyaspor. He had spells with Queens Park Rangers and West Brom too. The 28-year-old has not failed in everything because he is a proud guitar player. In fact, he does it for money sometimes when he is not playing.
4. Mario Balotelli- Piano
Mario Balotelli makes a lot of headlines and most of the time the press only says bad things about him. However, the Italian forward has a lot of positives in his life. The Nice forward scores great goals for club and country and he has also admitted he loves children. Today, we want to let you know he loves playing the piano. The former Manchester City, Liverpool, AC Milan and Inter Milan forward can play almost any song using the instrument.
3. Leighton Baines- Guitar
Everton left-back Leighton Baines is one of the best in the history of Premier League. The England fullback is perhaps up there with the likes of Ashley Cole and Patrice Evra. The Toffees vice Captain has struggled with injuries in recent months as age catches up with him. The 33-year-old is also a great guitar player. This might be his next career once he hangs the boots in the next couple of years.
