When he joined Manchester United back in 2010, it was revealed that Hernandez never drinks even a drop of alcohol.

“Chicharito has his diet, he doesn’t eat just anything. He never drinks even a drop of alcohol. He doesn’t stay up late for any reason.” Javier’s grandfather Tomas Balcazar said.

The Welshman admitted that he never drinks alcohol because he doesn’t enjoy the taste.

”I just don’t like the drink, to be honest. It’s not the fact that I choose not to drink alcohol. I just don’t like the taste of it. I’ve obviously tasted it, but I just don’t like it so it doesn’t do anything for me to be honest. In a way, it probably helps me though.”

5. Yaya Toure

Ivorian footballer once turned down a bottle of champagne as a Man of the Match award due to his Islamic faith. “Sorry I don’t drink because I’m Muslim,” He said.

Ronaldo’s reason is more of a personal one. His father passed away after years of alcohol abuse, and that is the main factor he decided to avoid the bottle.
