There are many different personality types in football, but some players just have this air of coolness surrounding them. Catch my drift? The Fan Park crew lists five players who we believe are the coolest professionals in football.
The Portuguese international looks like a player who would take absolutely no nonsense from anyone, but that’s just the ‘bad boy’ look that would make you believe that. The former Chelsea man regularly attends different fashion shows, always making sure he is up-to-date with the latest trends.
I can’t remember the last time I saw a strand of Giroud’s hair out of place, and after the forward misses a chance, he can been seen shouting and looking frustrated. These moves are usually followed up by his hand putting his hair back into place.
The Brazil international is personally one of my favourite personalities in football, with his afro hair and his cool attitude. Luiz also appeares to be a down to earth guy, and is also keen to share a joke with his fellow teammates and opposition players on the field. One thing that stood out for me, was how he consoled James Rodriguez after Brazil had knocked Columbia out of the 2014 World Cup.
When I look at the Bulgarian’s calm demeanour, I asked myself: “What does this man actually care about?” That’s how cool he comes across. It was reported that during his time at Manchester United, Alex Ferguson allowed Berbatov to feed his smoking habits, only if he kept it on the down-low. That is something that not many players would’ve gotten right with Sir Alex!
Once when asked by reporters as to what he’d be getting his wife for her birthday, the Swede responded in the coolest of manners by saying: “She already has Zlatan.” Say no more!
What other players do you think are the coolest?
