14 Footballers Who Have Degrees

After former Chelsea star Salomon Kalou celebrated the completion of his degree this week, here are some other footballers who have bagged degrees, including Percy Tau and a Kaizer Chiefs legend.

Scroll through the images above to see 14 footballers who have secured degrees!

The 35-year-old took to social media this week to share pictures of his graduation after securing a Business Administration degree from the Lyon Business School in France.

Kalou, who won the 2011/12 UEFA Champions League with Chelsea, is currently on the books of Botafogo in Brazil after his six-year stint with Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin came to an end following a social media gaffe at the height of the coronavirus outbreak.

After claiming his degree, the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations winner took to Twitter to upload a post paying homage to his late father, accompanied with images from his graduation on Tuesday.

Kalou has thus become the latest footballer to secure a degree, with several others having also spent time off the pitch studying.

Another player who combined playing and studying is Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini. The 36-year-old completed a Bachelor's Degree in Economics and Commerce in 2010, before gaining a Master's in the same subjects in 2017.

Chiellini is an alumni of the University of Turin, while South Africa poster boy Percy Tau holds a Degree of Commerce, which he acquired via UNISA.
