7 retired ballers with unique jobs


With the latest reports suggesting that Sergio Aguero could announce his retirement, here are seven footballers who chose unique careers after retiring. 

Manchester City’s record scorer left the Etihad at the end of 2020/21 campaign when he opted to join Barcelona on a two-year deal. However, Aguero recently found himself being rushed to hospital during Barca’s 1-1 draw with Alaves after suffering from chest pains and breathing difficulties. 

New reports from the Mirror are stating that the Argentine was then diagnosed with a ‘cardiac arrhythmia’ and this is said to have seemingly ended the Argentine's career.

The British outlet goes on to claim that the forward is set to publicly announce his retirement later this week.

The former midfielder has many businesses including one with Mesut Ozil that helps fight against global warming.   

Cameroon icon Samuel Eto’o officially filed his candidacy for the presidency of Cameroon Football Federation after revealing in September that he would be in the running for the role, saying it was "time to rebuild our football".
