Five Celebs Who Were Brilliant Footballers!

Many celebrities have surprised the world with their incredible touches in charity football matches – here are five famous people who could've perhaps pursued professional football careers!

Click through the mini-gallery to see the five celebrities!

The late and great Bob Marley, famous for his reggae music career, was someone who was believed to be extremely passionate about football, but he wasn't just an ordinary fan.

Marley reportedly grew up a huge fan of Brazilian legend Pele, who he admired during his days at Brazil club Santos. The iconic musician once famously told a journalist: "If you want to get to know me, you will have to play football against me and the Wailers."

Formula One legend Michael Schumacher, regarded as one of the sport's greatest drivers, is another celebrity who could play football well, and was even believed to have chosen racing over the beautiful game as his full-time profession.

Schumacher is still being treated for the serious head injury he suffered while skiing in 2013, but there is no doubt the English club he supports, Newcastle United, is always on his mind.

Popular British singer/songwriter Robbie Williams has also showcased some great touches in charity events over the years, while famous chef Gordon Ramsay has done the same.

Both of them have been known to play football as well as any professional, although perhaps age has slowed them down in recent years. American actor Tom Cruise is also known to be decent with the ball at his feet!

Did any of these names surprise you?
