With over 4 billion followers of football, it is by far the most popular sport in the world; this put the famous players in good position to make money not only on the pitch but also off it. They can do whatever they want during their playing time or after their career and still earn money. Here are some of the more notable good-looking footballers who have made money in modelling.
8. Oscar dos Santos Emboaba Júnior
Looking young is something most footballers strive for as many of them have cut their age to become a professional player (I’m not saying, Diego Costa).
The Brazil midfielder is one of the few players who look younger than their age and he has also made a bigger name for himself as a model. He stripped down to his skivvies for Calvin Klein.
7. Fredrik Ljungberg
Swedish former footballer, who currently coaches Arsenal’s Under-16s, spent most of his career with the Gunners, where he won honours including two Premier League titles and three FA Cups, scoring in two finals including the victory in 2002. Ljungberg was a model for Calvin Klein underwear until 2007.
6. Cristiano Ronaldo
The five-time FIFA Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo is one of the most attractive, best looking and handsome footballers in the world as his unbelievable cheerful look attracts so many fans. So, it’s no surprise that Ronaldo has modelled for Armani and released his own line of underwear.
5. David Beckham
David Beckham is one of the most respected men in the world today and his name is also an elite global advertising brand. He was captain of the English national team from 1998 to 2009, scored in three different FIFA World Cups, and played midfield for clubs in England, Spain, USA, Italy and France.
Back in 2007, The English great Beckham slipped comfortably into a second career as an underwear model, first for Emporio Armani and then for an eponymous collection sold through the retailer H&M. He rightfully becomes one of the top underwear models of all time.
