Nine Footballers Who Are Good At Other Sports!

Not all footballers are multi-talented, but today we decided to look at nine current and former players who are annoyingly good at other sports too! Can you think of any?

Click through the gallery to see nine stars who are good at other sports, according to the Daily Mirror!

On Thursday, we looked at footballers who enjoy different styles of fighting, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is said to have a black belt in taekwon-do.

The Swede also features in this gallery as the martial arts form is also regarded a popular sport, but which other current and past stars play other sports?

The late Tim Wiese, a German goalkeeper, used to wrestle in WWE, while Manchester United target Ivan Perisic is said to be a professional volleyball player!

AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini recently qualified to play in a professional tennis tournament, while Gabriel Batistuta, who was linked with the Cape Town City job, is said to be a keen polo player.

Names such as Jerzy Dudek, Ilhan Mansiz, Boudewijn Zenden and Bixente Lizarazu also feature in the gallery! 

Are you surprised by any of the names (or the other sports they play) in this gallery?
